Once again, another teacher-student sex relationship is in the news. This time it involves a ‘sexy’ teacher and two 18-year-old students. Tiffany Leiseth, 26, is a married substitute teacher from the New Brighton Area School District in rural western Pennsylvania. While her husband was out of town, she allegedly drank beer and had sex with the students.

According to police, Leiseth sent nude pictures of herself to the students days before they graduated from high school. On the last day of class she invited one of the students over and drank beer. Then, on the next day, she  invited the other student over and they had sex. Even though classroom instruction had ended, the students had not actually graduated yet and she was charged with institutional sexual assault.

The New Brighton School District officials released a statement stating, “The New Brighton School District promptly reported the events detailed in the criminal complaint to law enforcement and other state agencies as soon as we were made aware. The district has provided our complete cooperation with all involved agencies in the matters that were reported and we will continue to do so through the completion of the case. Although we would like to provide further comment, we are unable to do so in light of pending litigation. The individual is no longer employed by the district and we are unable to make further comment as this is a personnel matter and law prohibits us from making comments on matters of personnel.” Moon Township Police Chief Leo McCarthy stated “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.” Many parents were happy that the police took action against Leiseth.
