Sayer now 41, lost everything after 12 years of teaching at ‘Horndog High’. She was convicted and sentenced to 10 years probation, stripped of her teaching license and designated a Level 1 sex offender after took a plea deal. Her 5-year marriage to husband Jimmy Lathrop also hit the rocks.
The Eng family’s charges were revealed yesterday when a lawyer for the student’s family filed a $10 million notice of claim, charging that teacher Erin Sayar had sex with a 16-year-old she privately tutored between eight and 12 times last year, and also offered him pot from a stash kept on school grounds.

Lawyer Bruce Baron told the New York Post that Sayar ignored their civil motions for years, and didn’t respond to any legal letters.

So last week, a Brooklyn Supreme Court judge ordered a judgment against Sayar in her absence; $750,000 in punitive damages for Eng.
‘This verdict along with the punitive damages awarded by the judge sends a strong message that teachers across New York state should take their position of authority very seriously,’ Baron said.
He is now looking through Sayar’s financial records to reveal any money or financial holdings she may have to recover the damages.
