News 4 talks internet safety for your children after substitute teacher posed as teenage girl

Local News

Yesterday’s federal indictment of a former middle school substitute teacher and coach from Cheektowaga should serve as a stark warning to parents with children who spend any time online. 

Authorities say Gasiorek posed as a teenage girl to trick young boys into sending him nude pictures and videos for years, and that the list of his victims will grow and include even his own students and athletes at John F. Kennedy Middle School, who thought they were communicating with a person their age rather than an adult man.

Program Director of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children Kathy Gust joined us to talk internet safety tips for your children.
