Former teacher gets prison for having sex with 12-year-old

GOSHEN – A former teacher at Sacred Heart School in Newburgh was sentenced in Orange County Court on Thursday to 2 ½ years in state prison and 10 years of parole for having sex with a 12-year-old boy.

Lisa Franklin, 45, of Newburgh, pled guilty to second-degree rape in December.

She was charged with repeatedly having sex with one of her students from March 12, 2012 through July 12, 2013. At the time the sexual relationship began, Franklin was 44 and the victim was 12.

A final order of protection was issued forbidding Franklin from having any further contact with the victim.

“Those who abuse their position of trust with our children must be held accountable,” said District Attorney David Hoovler. “Students and parents expect teachers to look out for their students’ best interests and to protect them. When someone who is supposed to be a role model and mentor victimizes the very children they are to be protecting, justice demands severe punishment.”
