Joy Morsi, a 39 year old married high school gym teacher came to cause disarray after flying into a jealous rage upon finding out that a male student that she was having illicit sexual relations with was taking another girl to the prom. The outburst would lead to her ousting.
The teacher who taught at Grover Cleveland High School in Queens, New York, it would be alleged had sex with the wrestler student in the school gym and basement. It would also be established that Joy Morsi had sent the boy raunchy selfies and emails.
The Long Island mother, whose husband also teaches at the school (yes I know kids, the drama….), would come to be arrested on Monday and charged with third-degree rape.
During court proceedings, the prosecution would tell how the illegal relationship began in June last year when Morsi offered to help the student lose weight.
Kids, are you blushing? But the shit gets better….
On June 10, Joy Morsi allegedly lured the boy into a ‘secluded closet’ where she exposed herself to him, prosecutor Taylor Piscionere told.
From there the gym teacher sent the boy emails asking if he was a virgin, along with saucy text messages.
Oh innocent love…
The court would also come to hear how the pair had sex all over the school from June to July last year, and continued to meet for sex outside of school.
Prosecutors told how the victim reported Morsi to authorities about two weeks ago after she became jealous that he was taking a girl to prom.
Morsi would go on to plead not guilty to numerous counts of third-degree rape, a criminal sexual act in the third degree and one count of endangering the welfare of a child.
As the student turned 17 during the nearly year-long dalliance, subsequent alleged encounters are considered legal.
The teacher would decline during proceedings to tell why she continuously violated the boy along with abusing her trust as a school authority.
If convicted, she faces four years behind bars.
City Department of Education officials told New York Daily News that Morsi was ‘immediately removed’ from the classroom when she was reported.
Told deputy press secretary Marcus Liem: ‘We find these claims disturbing and reprehensible and she will remain reassigned — far from any student and the school — pending a criminal investigation,’
‘We will work closely with the school to ensure they are given any needed support.’
But what makes the case particularly interesting is the fact rumors had been floating around the school prior to school authorities taking note.
Told one student, ninth-grader Josie Gonzalez: ‘We had a feeling that something was going on,’
‘They would always be together around the school.’
Eyewitness News ABC7 reported that the Department of Education is now looking into Morsi’s interactions with other students.
Queens District Attorney Richard Brown has told the case was ‘particularly disturbing’ because the encounters occurred at school.
‘Schools should be safe havens for children. Instead, this defendant is accused of sexually preying upon one of her students during rendezvous all over the school.’
Until her dismissal the teacher had been earning a hefty $79,531 a year.
Interestingly it would also be established a man identified as Joy Morsi’s husband, Hany Morsi, attended her arraignment but did not accompany her when she left court. Can anyone guess why…?
