Queens teacher from LI pleads guilty to rape

A former Queens gym teacher from Long Island pleaded guilty Monday to engaging in sex acts with two students.



Joy Morsi, of Massapequa, was accused of having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old boy at Grover Cleveland High School in 2013. She allegedly exposed herself and performed a sex act on a second 16-year-old in 2014.



Queens prosecutors say Morsi pleaded guilty to rape and criminal sexual act charges.



The former teacher has been given one-year of mental health treatment. If she completes it, she will be sentenced to 10 years probation.



She must also register as a sex offender and surrender her teaching license.
