NEW YORK, June 4 (UPI) -- A gym teacher in Queens, charged with raping a 16-year-old student, has been arrested again following allegations she sexually abused another boy as well.
Joy Morsi, 38, stands charged with 20 counts of third-degree rape and criminal sexual acts for a six-week affair she had with student in summer 2013, in addition to the latest charges which have not yet been announced.
Prosecutors say Morsi met the first student when he approached the P.E. teacher for advice on losing weight for wrestling. Morsi later emailed the student asking if he was a virgin, which he said he was. The two got closer, and on June 5, 2013 Morsi invited the student into a closet on school grounds and exposed her breasts before having oral and vaginal sex with the student. Prosecutors accuse Morsi of having sex with the student 20 times on school grounds and at least 30 times overall.
The relationship ended, when, according to the New York Post, prosecutors say Morsi was upset upon learning the 16-year-old had asked another girl to prom.
"This case is particularly disturbing because the defendant is a teacher and schools should be safe havens for children," Queens DA Richard Brown said. "Instead, this defendant is accused of sexually preying upon one of her students during rendezvous all over the school."
Details of the affair came out after the alleged victim told one of his friends. Morsi's husband Hany, who teaches science at Grover Cleveland High School where the affair allegedly occurred, accompanied his wife to her second arraignment but declined to comment.
