A Ridgewood gym teacher has been sentenced to 10 months probation for pleading guilty to having sex with two underage male students, though she will have to complete a year’s worth of therapy in order to avoid jail time.
Joy Morsi, 40, was arrested in June when a student at the Grover Cleveland High School, where she taught since 1999, accused her of having a year-long sexual relationship with him when he was only 16. A second 16-year-old boy later came forth to accuse her as well, and she pleaded guilty on Friday to rape and criminal sexual act charges.
In addition to sentencing her to a year-long out-patient program for a diagnosed depressive disorder, a Queens Supreme Court judge also ordered that she give up her teaching license and register as a sex offender…(read more)

[VIDEO] Facing Rape Charge, Lusty Gym Teacher Accused of ‘Doing the Secret Handshake’ with Second Male StudentPosted: June 5, 2014
A 38-year-old (some reports say 39) gym teacher is accused of rape after allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old boy in the closet of her Queens high school, authorities say.
The teacher, Joy Morsi, was charged with third-degree rape and a third-degree criminal sexual act in connection with the alleged abuse, police say.
According to the criminal complaint, Morsi had sexual contact with the boy as many as 30 times over a six-week period last summer.
Police say Morsi was arrested after the boy told a friend, and that friend told a parent, who alerted school officials. Authorities say the 16-year-old student also has a sexually explicit video that is being investigated.
Note: The ‘Meredith Powell Sex Tape” video in circulation is fake.
The cam-show video that’s in multiple places on YouTube, purporting to be disgraced former Tacoma teacher Meredith Powell shakin’ her booty for a webcam, is just a woman who looks sorta like Powell. Get real. It’s not her. You know what’s real? This is real:
The mislabeled “Meredith Powell webcam video” is getting a lot of web searches and misdirected traffic (we’re getting a lot here, too, because of the word “video”) but there’s no credible evidence that it’s her. If it was Powell, I guarantee, you’d see it splashed all over TMZ, or Drudge.
If you want to see NSFW Meredith Powell material, you might want to check out this court document. (see first page above, page two is below the news video) It’s hilariously–or disturbingly–graphic. Bordering on pornographic. There was unmistakable sexual contact.
If you’re a parent, you might not think it’s funny in the least. If you’ve ever been on the wrong end of sexual misconduct or abuse between adult and minor, or a teacher and student, regardless of whether the perp was male or female, you definitely won’t find it funny.
We’ve been covering the Powell story since it broke. Here’s some links:

Cristina Nehring writes: Last Sunday’s New York Times Book Review is called “Let’s Read About Sex,” and apparently it’s caused a small stir. This is ironic because we’re at a stage in literary debate where the most original thing we could do with sex just might be to shut up about it.
We live at a moment where most lovers would be more ashamed to let on that their sex-style was (gasp!) “vanilla” than that it broke a couple of teeth. Married people are far more likely to feel guilty for not having enough sex than for having too much. “Regular sex is a part of every healthy life-style!” we are told everywhere, often in the same pages that we’re told to eat our vegetables, and by the same parties who instruct us to get cardiovascular exercise. Only the sex advice is more binding than the rest: When we skip out on a gym session or a serving of broccoli we can at least feel a little mischievous, a little naughty. If we skip a serving of sex, we only feel like a big bore, a stick in the mud. And as Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, most people would far rather be considered evil than dull.
