NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A man accused of raping and robbing a teacher in the Bronx last month got sprung from jail just a week before by a New York non-profit, according to a published report.

The New York Post reports the Bronx Freedom Fund paid $1,000 bail to get 30-year-old Lynneke Burris, of Brooklyn, out of jail for allegedly carrying crack and punching a man in the face.

A week later, he was arrested in the attack on a 23-year-old high school English teacher in her Concourse Village apartment building.

According to its website, the Bronx Freedom Fund provides bail for people accused of misdemeanors.
