Long Island teacher accused of sex with student

Looks like this one might be able to use the insanity defense...

A well-liked teacher and track coach at a Wantagh school stands accused of statutory rape after police say she had sex with a teenage student.

Heather Kennedy, 25, has taught math at Wantagh High School for three years, officials said, and had a good reputation with students and administrators alike.

But Kennedy was forced from her job teaching 10th- and 11th-graders and into court after she was arrested Wednesday. She was charged with having sex with a 16-year-old in his car after his father contacted police because the boy told him of the tryst, police said. ...

Note from Gag:

From the yearbook picture below, it looks like Heather might also be able to use the 'twinkie defense.'
