Teacher from Massapequa Charged With Having Sex With Student

A 39-year-old New York City school teacher from Massapequa has been arrested for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old student at the school last year, Queens prosecutors said.

Joy Morsi was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and 23 counts each of third-degree rape and criminal sexual act.

Prosecutors said Morsi, a physical education teacher at Grover Cleveland High School in Ridgewood, engaged in sexual relations with a male student in the basement and other locations inside of the school on multiple occasions between June 5, 2013 and July 24, 2013.

Judge Ernest Hart set bail for Morsi at $25,000. She faces up to four years in prison, if conviction. She is due back in court June 23.
