Paterson charter school director Danny Necimo accused of sexually touching, harassing receptionist

Danny-Necimo-arts-sci-charter

The director of the Paterson Arts and Science Charter School allegedly sexually touched an employee and engaged in a campaign of sexual harassment against her, according to documents filed in New Jersey Superior Court.

“Those look nice,” Danny Necimo, the accused director, told the woman identified by her initials as J.R., who worked as a receptionist at the Paterson Arts and Science Charter School on Grand Street. “I like big-breasted women.”

In one incident, Feb. 2017, Necimo allegedly grabbed the woman by her buttocks. In another incident, May 2017, Necimo asked the woman to come to the conference room, shut the door, and approached her from the back. He grabbed her breast, took it out of her shirt, and tried to put his lips on her bosom, according to the lawsuit.

The woman pushed Necimo away. She told him if he touched her again, she would kick him in the “balls” and scream.

Necimo did not respond to repeated requests for comments for this story on Thursday. On Friday morning, he called a reporter from the school’s phone, when asked to identify himself, he hung up.

“I’ll have my lawyer call you,” said Necimo, who is identified as Danny Necimoglu in the lawsuit, in a second phone call that followed the bizarre first. Neither he nor his lawyer has responded to the allegations as of Monday morning.

When asked if the woman reported what appears to be a sexual assault to police, her attorney, Mark Mulick, said, “She was afraid for her job. When she complained, she was fired. They are afraid of being put through the meat grinder. A lot of women are afraid to report.”

The woman, who has been identified by the Paterson Times, began working for the Paterson Arts and Science Charter School on Aug. 10, 2015. She resides in Paterson.

On yet another occasion, Necimo told the woman he would rip her apart.

“Your hands can do other things besides paperwork,” Necimo allegedly said to her. “Try my office sofa after school to see how comfortable it is.”

The woman resisted and told him to stop each time, says the lawsuit. Necimo, who would not stop, began a demeaning campaign against her for resisting. He called her “stupid” and “dumb.” He asked her if she was “f—king stupid?”

The receptionist told him he was being disrespectful and that she would report him to human resources.

“If you don’t like it, there is a f–king door,” Necimo responded to her comp.

On Aug. 24, 2017, she contacted the human resources department of the iLearn Schools, the parent organization of the Paterson Arts and Science Charter School, to report that she was being harassed both verbally and physically.

The lawsuit states she spoke to two women, Gulten Bergal and Lori Cobb. She told them she was being harassed and improperly touched by Necimoglu.

Cobb apologized and told the woman to take the rest of the afternoon off and not to return to Necimo’s campus. The receptionist was to wait for a call. At 5:30 p.m., she received a call from Bergall at her home. Bergall instructed her to visit the iLearn’s central office before reporting to the Paterson campus the next day.

On Aug. 25, she met both Bergall and Cobb. She was told her employment with iLearn Schools had been terminated. Bergall told her she was being fired because Necimo complained that she was not completing her work.

A month earlier, iLearn School renewed her contract for 12 months. How had she been terminated if the school had renewed her contract last month? She inquired to the duo. Cobb and Bergall said nothing and looked uncomfortable, says the lawsuit.

Cobb told her she should seek legal assistance if she thought she was being treated unfairly.

On Aug. 30, 2017, Necimo’s assistant Caroline Johnson called the receptionist and told her that the school director was sorry about what happened and that he knew he made a mistake.

Johnson told her she told Necimo he acted stupidly and it would ruin his life.

Necimo, who was hired by the school on Aug. 1, 2015 for $91,800, lives in Wayne. He is married to a woman who works for the Paterson Charter School for Science and Technology, according to public records.

Necimo was allegedly carrying on an affair with another employee at the school to whom he made sexually provocative comments about the receptionist, says the lawsuit.

“iLearn does not and will not comment on pending litigation,” said Nihat Guvercin, chief executive officer for iLearn Schools.

Guvercin did not respond to five questions sent by the Paterson Times. He would not say whether the school conducted an investigation into the woman’s allegations. He would also not provide Necimo’s current employment status with the school.

State law says employment status of an employee should be immediately available upon request.

Necimo remains employed at Paterson Arts and Science Charter School based on his phone call from the school.

    Typical charter shenanigans…its because they lack transparency they think get away with this stuff. Mainstream media wont run these articles because the charters threaten to pull advertising money to keep their sham illusion up.

    • latish

      if you dont know the story behind all this, you should not be speaking in such ways! this was filed 2 years ago. you are just finding out now. get your facts straight before giving such a horrible opinion about something you have no clue about.

      • Lauren

        If such an incident happened why would it just now be coming out. This is Paterson, it would’ve made headlines way before. Not after she’s unemployed. Looks like someone needs a bit money after losing their job. And how do would you know this is all true, it’s a “she said” type of scenario. There are no witnesses what so ever that have any input. It’s fake news, just trying to ruin an innocent mans reputation

        • latish

          if you read, you should know that this was not because she was unemployed, she was unemployed because she spoke 2 years ago! ask in that school if he is innocent, everyone knows he is not. there are many witnesses and proof to this. i it is easy to judge a woman without knowing the facts. i personally know the lady and she is an exceptional woman whom was loved by staff students and parents. you have no idea the pain that lady went through . mind that other female teachers in that school had similar issues with him, it will all come out in due time.

          • Miss jamaica

            I believe every word of this and Lauren is either related to him or she is sleeping with him.
            It happen the same way the young lady said it happen.
            Those two administrators that she spoke with should be put on blast and never work with kids again shame on them for protecting an harasser.
            Please don’t defend your opinion from this illiterate.

          • latish

            Thank you, we wish everyone could see this how you see it … she never wanted this to go public as she is embarrassed because she knows the children she loves in that school will read this and she does not want to be in the public eye this people did enough damage to her already. it is a disgrace that people would dare come here without knowing the victim and speak in such ways about this woman who did nothing to deserve this treatment but work with love for the school and the children.
            God bless you.

          • Lauren

            Shut yo stupid ass up. I got respect for myself prolly unlike yo stank pussy sleeping with everyone. Fuck outta here I agree with right not some money thirsty lady

        • Kowalski

          innocent until proven guilty….and she is just now bring this up because she was afraid of losing her job.So, can you stop being a ignorant dumb ass?

          • Lauren

            Afraid of losing her job what a pussy. So she waits till she gets fired. That’s some kid shit. He’s innocent and it’ll be proven he’s innocent. These fucks just want the money at end of the day

          • Kowalski

            She was afraid of losing her job because she was threaten by D.N, I don't know if you have seen this man before but, he is big as fuck probably around 250 pounds and 6 feet tall, pretty scaring and very intimidating if you ask me and she needs a job to begin with.Finding a new job is hard especially if she had children or a kind of family to support.

          • Lauren

            One, thanks for putting a label on him makes you look very professional. Now everyman that looks 250 lbs and is 6 foot is “very scary and intimidating”. I’ll definitley keep that in mind. Yeah I have actually seen him and he’s got so much respect and is such a sweet person.

          • latish

            She does, and he is not a sweet person. Everyone in that school know who he really is.
            This woman was loved by ALL staff students parents … and finally i read a comment with common sense, obviously this person commenting here by the name of lauren must be a friend of his but poor thing dont really know who this monster is. Everything will come out and the truth will open everyones eyes

          • latish

            She filed 2 years ago, happens to be that this just came on the paper, Lauren you as a woman should be ashamed of yourself.

        • MarquinhoGaucho

          Because before a lawsuit can take place there must be both an internal investigation and an official one before a civil suit can commence. Open a law book some time

          • Vindicated

            LMFAO!! Dude stop showing them the facts!

    • Kowalski

      By your very rude comment im assuming you've been in the same situation?

      • Lauren

        I’m guessing you have becuase you’re acting so butthurt by my comments.

        • MarquinhoGaucho

          You must be the woman DM was having the affair with mentioned in the article…he giving it to that good…and your "butthurt" comment must've been a Freudian Slip (look it up)

    • MarquinhoGaucho

      other Gulen troll paid to try to save their cash cow.

      • latish

        You are very smart, and you are right on the money About that organization ! Its all true, employees from that school know the truth. 80 to 90 percent of the employees are Turkish.

        • MarquinhoGaucho

          It started so all the Turkish kids would have to go to PPS with the Spanish and Black kids…there was a time when the school was 99% Turkish, but thanks to lawsuits they had to accept other kids..but that coincided with the charter boom and they realized they could make millions to use for their overthrow of the Turkish government…FYI Charters were started just after desegregation in Virginia so they wouldn't have to accept negro children. The NAACP Has come out against them.

  • Lauren

    This is such a disgrace reminds me of Kavanaugh case. If such an incident happened that long ago why it now be coming about. We need a change America and if something like this happens why are we just finding out and putting a bad name on such a guy. This is a disgrace and such a bullshit lie. This man has done nothing wrong. #JusticeForDanny!

    • MarquinhoGaucho

      Kavanaugh case happened 30 years ago in a different time while the man was in high school and college…THIS case is a grown man in the present in today's ME TOO movement…comparing apples to oranges …you never had a debate class did you?

    • MarquinhoGaucho

      Those people bring over unqualified people from Turkey abusing the h1 B Visas , taking jobs away from Americans, then force them to pay a tithe called a "tuzuk" up to 16K a year . The only thing they care about is fleecing the tax payers with a sham, conflicts of interest..owner vendors and attrition.

  • Nightlyfapper

    Sounds like this low life is a typical mommy without a husband.looking to get paid. She needs hard evidence if not then she should be counter sued and taken her 15 year old Lexus while she continues to live in Government housing. I am sure she is back on welfare now having more babies.

    • latish

      She does not drive a lexus, she is married and she is not on any Goverment assistance program, and if she was there is nothing wrong with that. There is A LOT of evidence, trust me on this ;) . Ignorant people like you should not be allowed to use the internet.
