A former gym teacher at Moore Catholic high school in Staten Island has been charged with 30 counts of statutory rape for allegedly having numerous inappropriate sexual encounters with a 16 year old male student.
Megan Mahoney, 24, according to charging documents obtained from Richmond County, she is facing 30 counts of rape in the third degree, each count having maximum term of 4 years so you do the math.
It all began when Mahoney, a former Wagner College star basketball player and assistant basketball coach for Moore Catholic offered to coach the boy in basketball.
The sexual encounters allegedly occurred in a 4 month time period between Oct 2013 and January 2014 at least two times a week with some occurring on Moore Catholic High property, according to police.
The walls closed in when the ex-girlfriend of the boy involved allegedly spotted the two at a pizzeria and contacted police. With the investigation on by the NYPD, Mahoney resigned in January and was arrested this past Monday and released without bail.
