NEW YORK (AP) - Prosecutors say a New York City high school teacher used Snapchat to send a photo of his genitals to a 16-year-old student.

Brooklyn Tech teacher Sean Shaynak pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges including dissemination of indecent material to a minor and harassment.

Prosecutors say the 44-year-old math and physics teacher was Facebook friends with the student. Her name was not released.

According to the investigation, Shaynak used Snapchat to send a photo of his genitals to the student on June 27.

Prosecutors say the student photographed the image with her phone.

Shaykak faces up to seven years in prison if convicted.

His lawyer, Howard Kirsch, had no comment.

Brooklyn Tech is one of the city’s most selective public schools.

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s son, Dante, is a student there.
