Sex Scandal Rocks Catholic High

A female teacher at a Catholic high school in Albany, N.Y., allegedly had sex with a male student and, Judy Sanders of CBS affiliate WRGB-TV in Albany on The Early Show, he's not the only one with whom she's said to have had relations.

Beth Geisel, a 42-year-old Christian Brothers Academy writing instructor, mother of four and wife of a bank president, said nothing as she surrendered to face charges of raping a 16-year-old male student last May.

Police say she had sex with the boy once at her home in the Albany suburb of Colonie, as her children slept downstairs.

According to the boy's deposition, "She came home in a cab. She was drunk. She started to rub my chest, and just suddenly kissed me. I was shocked. She told me she knew it was wrong, but she had been thinking about me for a while. We then took off our clothes and had sex."

Geisel's attorney, Don Kissella, said little: "Obviously, a difficult situation for everyone involved. That's it."
