Remember Alexander Kravitz? We wrote about the Gravesend resident last January, after he was arrested in a Queens motel room where he hoped to make a porn video with a 14-year-old girl. Kravitz’s defenders came scrawling comments on the site back then, talking up what a real hardworking, honest champ the 27-year-old William E. Grady High School teacher is and that we shouldn’t judge him until the jury does.
Well, the jury has. Wait, nix that, Alex Kravitz pleaded guilty to the crime. Kravitz admitted to attempting to disseminate indecent material to a minor, as part of a deal for a 90-day jail term and five years’ probation. The Daily News reports that Kravitz will also have to turn over his computer, forfeit his teaching license, and register as a sex offender.
For those who don’t remember, Kravitz, a.k.a. EVRYDAYGURLS, had been instant messaging back and forth with what he thought was a 14-year-old girl he met in a chat room (Ed. – Sheesh, instant messaging is so 1999. Now the kids are all about sexting). Of course, it turned out to be a police officer, but by the time Kravitz figured that out he had sent video of himself masturbating, arranged to shoot a porno in a Queens hotel, and – uh – showed up to make that porno. Commenters on this site claimed Kravitz knew all along that it wasn’t a 14-year-old and his undying curiosity drove him to get to the bottom of it. In that case, he also ought to be charged with criminal stupidity.
According to Gothamist, “After the arrest, police found a porno collection which included images of sex with children ranging from in age from 13 to infants…stashed in the Gravesend house he shared with his mother and sister.” (emphasis ours).
Sorry, three months is not enough.
