Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. announced Tyler Sick was sentenced this morning to 10 years probation following his guilty plea in July to two counts of Rape in the Third Degree, class E felonies, for having sex with a victim under the age of 17. Sick appeared before Westchester County Court Judge Susan Cacace. Among the conditions of his probation, Sick surrendered his teaching license and will have to register as a sex offender. Sick was a teacher in the Bronx.
Assistant District Attorney Mary Clark-DiRusso, Deputy Chief in the Special Prosecutions Division, addressed the court saying the sentence was agreed to at the request of the victim’s family.
Sick petitioned the court to allow him to move permanently to North Carolina where he has family. It is now up to the North Carolina state probation authorities as to whether they will accept the transfer of his probation. In the meantime, Sick must remain in Westchester until that decision is made. A Sex Offender Registry Act (SORA) hearing is scheduled for Nov. 27, 2018.
