Ex-teacher's aide sentenced for teen sex

MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. (AP) - October 20, 2009

Donna Goebel maintained her innocence during sentencing in court Monday. The 45-year-old Westampton resident expressed "extreme regrets" for what she called an "uncharacteristic situation."

The 16-year-old testified that the two had sex several times in early 2008.

The judge said he had great difficulty painting Goebel as a predator because she was in an awful marriage.

The judge said consensual sex between a 16-year-old and an adult is legal except when the adult holds a position like a teacher's aide.
