Kevin Eng, the former “Horndog High” student who slept with his teacher, Erin Sayar, has been awarded $750,000 in damages.

Sayar, 41, of Brooklyn, was sentenced to 10 years probation, stripped of her teaching license and designated a Level 1 sex offender after took a plea deal for multiple charges of statutory rape and sex abuse over her affair with then-16-year-old Kevin Eng back in 2012.

Maureen Eng, Kevin’s mother, sued Sayar and the school for $10 million citing the teen’s emotional distress. She lost her suit against the city last year, but her lawyers continued the case against the teacher.

via New York Post:

Sayar was initially charged with 50 criminal counts of statutory rape and sex abuse, then copped a plea deal and was sentenced to 10 years probation, stripped of her teaching license and designated a Level 1 sex offender.

Eng’s mom sued Sayar and the city in civil court, citing her son’s emotional anguish over the saga. She lost her $10 million suit against school officials last year, but the teen’s lawyer, Bruce Baron, continued with his case against Sayar.

But Sayar, whose husband left her in 2013, dropped off the radar, Baron told The Post on Tuesday. The lawyer said he had filed numerous civil motions on behalf of Eng in the past five years, and each time Sayar “didn’t show’’ up to court or didn’t respond to legal letters.

According to reports, Eng admitted having oral sex and intercourse with Sayar between eight to 12 times. The pair also exchanged 3,856 text messages during a span of 17 days.
