THE BRONX - The bail has been raised for a former Bronx teacher accused of raping a 10-year-old student.

Anthony Criscuolo was back in court where the bail went up from $750,000 to $2 million. An order of protection was also issued against him.

The 40-year-old, who worked at P.S. 386, is charged with two counts of rape, attempted rape, predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child.
