Sandra Geisel Gets Six Months In Jail
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) _ A former Catholic school English teacher arrested for having sex with a 16-year-old student will serve six months in jail as part of a plea deal announced Monday. Sandra Beth Geisel, 42, will be sentenced in November to six months behind bars, including time already served, according to the Albany County District Attorney's office. She also will have to register as a sex offender.
Geisel _ a mother of four _ was indicted earlier this month on charges of third-degree rape. She was fired from her teaching job at Christian Brothers Academy in June, soon after police caught her with a 17-year-old student. No charges were filed in that incident because the teen was of legal age. But during that investigation, a 16-year-old boy came forwarded and said he had sexual intercourse with Geisel on two separate occasions, leading to the charges against her, police said.
