A former basketball coach and gym teacher at a prestigious New York City high school, Megan Mahoney, who could not control her high sexual libido, is facing statutory rape charges for her alleged sex abuse of a male student.
The 24-year-old teacher who was arrested last Monday for allegedly having regular sexual contact with the same 16-year-old student over a period of more than two months beginning in late October 2013, would face a 30 counts of rape in the case.
The Huffington Post reports that Mahoney romped with the teen on numerous occasions, at least two times per week during the period.
She is also charged with four counts of 'criminal sexual act' because of mutual oral sex that she and the boy allegedly engaged in at least two times per month during the said period.
In January, Mahoney resigned from Moore Catholic High School in Staten Island, where she taught gym and was an assistant coach for the women's basketball team.
Investigators said that some of the encounters happened on school grounds. In August, the victim, whose name was not revealed, told the New York Post that the illicit relationship began shortly after Mahoney allegedly approached him in the gym and offered to coach him in basketball.

Richard Postiglione, the Moore's athletic director, was also investigated for allegedly failing to report sex abuse accusations against Mahoney and another female teacher at the school.
Before she was a coach, Mahoney was also a student athlete, playing basketball for Fordham University and Wagner College.
