Hot for Teacher

N.Y. Teacher Accused of Raping Boy
Tuesday, August 02, 2005

ALBANY, N.Y. — A 42-year-old teacher at a Catholic school who was charged with rape for allegedly having sex with an underage male student posted a $20,000 bond Tuesday and was released from jail.

Authorities said Sandra Beth Geisel had sex with four students from the Christian Brothers Academy in Colonie, N.Y., but in three of the cases the boys were 17-years-old and therefore were legally able to give their consent. Geisel faces sexual assault charges for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old boy.

John Aretakis, who has represented alleged victims of clerical sexual abuse (search) and is now the lawyer for a 17-year-old CBA student who allegedly had sex with Geisel, said the school ignored her "bizarre and irresponsible behavior" for months.

Geisel, a mother of four, was fired from the school in June. She was on the school's payroll first as an English teacher and then as a volunteer in the school's writing lab.

Police in Cohoes, a town adjacent to Colonie, responded to a resident's call June 11 about a suspicious parked car. Police said they found Geisel and a 17-year-old student inside the car.

About a week later, the school sent a letter to parents about the alleged affair, though officials didn't identify the teacher. Officials said they'd found the conduct inappropriate.

After reports of Geisel's dismissal spread, a 16-year-old student, at the urging of his parents, reported to Colonie police that he'd had two sexual encounters with her, according to the Troy Record.

"If [Geisel] were a man, she'd likely be referred to as a predator," said Colonie Police Chief Steven Heider.

Geisel faces 16 years in prison.

Heider said Geisel first had sex with the 16-year-old the night of May 15 in her Latham home, and then again on the night of May 28 in the press box at the school's football field.

Signed statements by the boy and others describe a number of sexual encounters involving the former teacher.

On the online, Geisel won lascivious praise from one — and real admiration from others.

For example, one student went online in March to pant, "down boy down — get what I'm saying guys." Another, last November, declared her "much more" than "just a pretty face." Another, in February, called her an "amazing writer."

I have to ask - where the hell were all these horny female teachers when I was 16-17? I couldn't even get a freshman to slow dance with me back then, let alone get someone who knew what they were doing to touch my pee-pee.

I'm not saying that what she did was right, but 16 years in prison for having consentual sex with a 16 year old boy? That's a little harsh in my book.

No, it's not right for this woman to have sex with 4 kids (especially when she has 4 of her own). But 16 years for performing a probably much-needed service for a 16 year old? Please. Show me a 16 or 17 year old that's going to turn down some freaky freaky from an older woman and I'll show you a closet homosexual (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Ban her from teaching. But don't lock her up until she's almost 60. That's just wrong.

I feel sorry for her own kids and her husband. The dishonor this "mom/wife" has brought down on them. The teasing, and ridicule her sons & daughter will have to face,and the shame her husband will have to face in his life too.
That's what's really the saddest part of this situation.
