A FORMER gym teacher at a prestigious Catholic high school has been charged with having sex numerous times with a male student.
Megan Mahoney, 24, was charged with 30 counts of statutory rape for a series of trysts with the 16-year-old boy that police say took place over a three-month period, the New York Post reports.
Court papers allege that Mahoney, a teacher at Moore Catholic High School in New York, had sex with the teen “at least two times per week”.

The pair even had sex on the school’s Staten Island campus, police told the New York Post. Mahoney was also charged with four counts of “criminal sexual act”, meaning mutual oral sex that she and the boy allegedly engaged in “at least two times per month during said period.”
Earlier this year, the boy told The Post that his relationship with Mahoney developed after she approached him in the school’s gym and offered to coach him in basketball.
He recalled boasting about his experiences to his best friend and classmates, who responded by saying, “How awesome — good job.”

The teen claimed that he and Mahoney would often “just drive around and (do it) in the car”.
Mahoney, who also coached the girls’ basketball team, quit her teaching job in January after she was spotted with the boy by his ex-girlfriend at a local pizza restaurant.
The former teacher could serve up to four years in jail for each felony charge. She was released on bail.
Mahoney is one of two former female basketball coaches at the Catholic school who have been reported in The New York Post and other media of having sexual relationships with students.

The New York Post reported that principal Bob Manisero and basketball coach Richard Postiglione knew of the sexual allegations but failed to report them.
The Post reported that the boy’s mother claims she informed the Archdiocese in April, but got no reply.
Postiglione stepped down from his role as Moore Catholic’s athletics director, but remains the school’s director of finance and operations, the Post says.
