Former Spanish Teacher Lisa Footer Guilty of Sex with Teen Boy


Lisa Footer, 44-year-old spanish teacher at Canandaigua Academy, Canandaigua, New York, accused of sexually abusing a 16-year-old male student has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child.

Footer, , of 60 Clifton St., Manchester, , Ontario County was sentenced in Canandaigua City Court Wednesday to three years probation and will have to register as a level 1 sex offender. She has already given up her teaching license. She also pleaded to similar charges in Manchester Town Court. An order of protection was also granted for the victim. The victim was not a student in Footer’s class, said her attorney Stephen Sercu.

Footer, a married mother with two children - which makes her another mother who fucks with teen boys, was initially charged with sex abuse, forcible touching and endangering the welfare of a child. She was arraigned in November 2012. The incident that led to the charges occurred in autumn 2012 in the parking lot of a local convenience store. Police say just before 10pm on a Saturday night female teacher and student were parked in the empty lot of the Byrne Dairy on South Main Street in Canandaigua.  Court papers detail the alleged sexual encounter: "The Said defendant, Lisa A. Footer (Age 44) at the aforesaid date, time and location, did knowingly act in a manner likely to be injurious to the physical , mental and moral welfare of a child less than seventeen years olf ... by engaging in sexual conduct with ... said sexual conduct being Footer masturbating ... all contrary to the provision of the statute in such case made and provide."

According to investigators  there might have been multiple encounters dating back to the summer 2012 and there fore they expected to bring more charges during the investigation of teacher student sex case. Police were looking into allegations of sexual encouters at the Manchester home where the teacher lived with her husband and two children.  Lisa Footer's teenaged son is two years younger than- and aquainted with - the alleged victim.


Footer is not the first female teacher in Canandaigua charged with having an inappropriate relationship with a student. In 2010, another Canandaigua Academy teacher, Maria Gurecki-Haskins pled guilty and was sentenced to 45 days in jail and had to surrender her teaching certificate for having a sexual contact with a 17-year-old student inside a classroom.
