Sean Shaynak, a divorced 44-year-old father of a nine-year-old daughter, faces 36 charges of kidnapping and criminal sexual acts on the school girls where he taught — the prestigious Brooklyn Technical High School in New York, the New York Post reported.

Shaynak remained in custody Wednesday, a day after he pleaded not guilty to the new charges. Bail was set at $750,000 bond and was at $250,000 for the previous charge. Defense attorney Kimberly Summers declined to comment.

The charges in the new indictment include kidnapping, forcible touching, sexual abuse and criminal sexual act. Shaynak faces up to 25 years in prison on the top charge, authorities said.

Authorities said Tuesday that computers and phones taken after his arrest found text messages, photos and videos detailing sexual interactions with six teens, from ages 13 to 19, between 2011 and 2014. Those interactions included taking a 15-year-old girl to a nude beach and giving alcohol and cigarettes to minors, officials said.

Prosecutors described a four-month-long sexual relationship Shaynak had with another Brooklyn Tech student.

“He brought her to a sex club out of state where he performed sex acts on other people and other people performed sex acts on him in the presence of the victim,” Mancino said, adding that Shaynak bought her cigarettes and took her on a terrifying car ride during which he screamed that she couldn’t tell her parents.
