NYC high school teacher arrested for sex with underage student in motel: cops; Charged with rape
A city high school teacher was arrested Friday for bedding an underage student at a hot-sheets motel in Long Island, police said.
Tara Driscoll, 33, an english teacher at the Campus Magnet high school, in Cambria Heights, Queens, is accused of having the sex tryst with the unidentified student on March 19 at the Capri Motel in Lynbrook, Nassau County police said.
The boy, who is under 17 years old, was a student at Campus Magnet, but it's unclear if Driscoll taught him.
When the student's mother learned of the encounter, she alerted police, cops said.
Driscoll, who has worked as a teacher for city since 2006 and earns nearly $57,000 a year, surrendered to special victims investigators Friday morning, cops said. She was charged with rape and criminal sexual act.
Driscoll is still employed by the city, but has been reassigned out of the classroom, the city Education Department said.
