TEACHER COPS PLEA IN STUDENT-SEX CASE
Mark Weisberg, a 50 year old John Adams High School English teacher, was indicted for repeatedly sodomizing a 15 year old student after she told her parents - four years later. Weisberg is charged with sexually abusing the girl during a 10 month period in 1996 and 1997, when he taught at Martin Van Buren High School. A grand jury charged him with 10 counts of sodomy in the third degree. The Queens high school teacher was sentenced to five years' probation yesterday as part of a plea deal. He admitted to having consensual sexual relations with the student while teaching English at Martin Van Buren HS in Middle Village. He pleaded guilty to third degree sodomy and must register as a sex offender as mandated by Judge Joseph Grosso.
