Summary:
Beth Geisel
was a teacher at Christian Brothers Academy in Albany, NY, a private Catholic school. She was fired from the position in July, 2005, after allegations of a sexual relationship between Geisel and at least one 16-year-old male student surfaced. After a police investigation, she was charged with two felony charges of rape in the third degree and two charges of endangering the welfare of a minor. As details emerged, three students eventually claimed to have had sex with Geisel, and also told authorities that she had supplied them with alcohol in the past. It was also learned that during a school trip to Florida, Geisel became "so irrepressibly intoxicated" that "she was unable to stand, and four juniors had to carry her back to the hotel." In August of 2005, Geisel, through her attorney, asserted that she was in fact the victim, and that she had been forced to have sex with two of the three male students through blackmail. Later that month, she was arrested for driving while intoxicated. In September of 2005, she was sentenced to six months in jail. In December of 2005, she completed her sentence.
