schoolNEW BRIGHTON, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania high school substitute English teacher has been charged with having sex with two 18-year-old students days before they graduated.

The attorney for 26-year-old Tiffany Leiseth, of Moon Township, didn’t immediately return a call for comment.

Eighteen-year-olds can legally consent to sex in Pennsylvania, but police say she committed a crime because the encounters with the male students occurred when Leiseth still had a teacher-student relationship with them.

New Brighton schools Superintendent Joseph Guarino contacted police after he learned of the incidents. Police determined the students had sex with Leiseth in late May, after she invited them home on separate days.

Leiseth no longer works for the district. She is charged with two felony counts of having sexual contact with a student and one count of providing alcohol to a minor.

    That is BS. Should charge the students with the same student-teacher relationship law then. They are old enough to consent then they are old enough to know laws and pay price as well.

  • What??

    If the boys are old enough to consent at 18, then what is the crime? I am curious if there is actually a law against this?
