ALBANY - A former Christian Brothers Academy teacher was sentenced to six months behind bars Monday. At the same time, the judge in the case said her underage victim wasn't totally innocent for his role in the sex scandal that drew national attention.

With time already served, Sandra Beth Geisel, 42, of Latham, is expected to spend another month behind bars on charges she recently pleaded guilty to - one count of rape for having numerous sexual encounters with one of her 16-year-old male students.
Upon release, Geisel will then spend the next 10 years on probation. She must register as a sex offender and will have to attend a court-mandated substance abuse program.
Geisel has been behind bars ever since her bail was revoked in August after she was arrested on DWI charges.
