A Pennsylvania teacher has been charged with felony institutional sexual assault following allegations that she had sex with two 18-year-old students at her home.

 

Tiffany Leiseth, 26, worked as a substitute English teacher in the New Brighton School District, northwest of Pittsburgh. Thevictims in the case were both taught by Leiseth, although the alleged sex acts occurred after classes had ended for the year.

 

Police launched an investigation in late May after they received tips that the teacher had sent nude photos to each of the young men.

 

“[Investigators] followed up on that rumor and they found those students, and they found the nude photographs, and they identified the teacher,” Moon Township Police Chief Leo McCarthy told CBS Pittsburgh.

 

In interviews with police, each victim described how he had been invited to Leiseth's house, was offered beer, and then engaged in sexual activity with the teacher. The first student came over on the last day of school, in the hours following the end of classes. The second student said he visited Leiseth's home the next day, according to police.

 

She reportedly told the students not to tell anyone, according to WPXI.

Leiseth lost her job in the wake of the allegations, but her attorney argued that since classes were over when the alleged acts occurred, she wasn't their teacher anymore.

 

“I'm not going to get in a war at this point with the alleged victims’ families,” Michael DeRiso, Leiseth’s attorney, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “The reality is you had three consenting adults once school let out.”

 

McCarthy disagrees.

 

“Regardless of your age, whether you’re an adult or not, if you’re a high school student, a teacher cannot have sexual relations with you,” McCarthy told WPXI.

 

However, because the young men were 18 years old, police could not charge Leiseth with a crime for sending them nude photos, CBS Pittsburgh reports.

 

Leiseth's preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 22.

I'm not sure that this teacher should be charged. It did happen after school had ended and the former students were both 18.

Is it sketchy? Absolutely. 

Is it criminal? Not sure.

Kesler was lucky to score 20 this year since the injury to Morrison allowed him to do so.

I doubt Kesler would ever break 15 goals in his career again.

I'd have to agree with this. True, the optics are pretty horrible but I'm surprised that charges have been laid.

She's totally cute.  The kids were 18, it wasn't 2 at the same time so there was no wiener touching.

 

No issue except for the fact that they were in her school at the time.

He's out for 6 months (which will hinder his development) and he really needs that development. There's already worries that he won't translate to the NHL and he'll end up a huge ass bust.

You could definitely use some extra tutoring with her.

After class sex-ed lessons eh?

 

 

If she did this while they were her students, I have a bit of a problem with it.

 

After she's no longer their teacher? Then they're just three adults.

Wut's the matter with these two 18 year old boys?  If it were me, and I was still 18, I would have kept my mouth shut and gone back for more.  I would have considered it a nice graduation gift that kept giving.

It happened after school the last day of classes so she was technically no longer they're teacher, they're 18 so they were probably in grade 12 and would have graduated already meaning they were no longer students, and they're all consenting adults.

Two 18 year olds, finished school, with a 26 year old teacher? This shouldn't even be an issue at all.

Well if teachers are going to be held to stringent morality standards...how about politicians?

You didnt read the story did you?

I believe keeping their mouth shut includes not sharing these nude photos with their friends and other students, so as to make sure that the police would not have been 'tipped off' in the first place.

I have no problem agreeing with you guys, as long as you can freely admit that its ok for a male teacher to have sex with his female students as long as they are 18.
