The latest case of a female teacher allegedly having sex with one of her students involves a gym teacher charged with 30 counts of statutory rape of a teen boy, catching the attention of radio giant Rush Limbaugh.

Megan Mahoney, 24, resigned her position as a gym teacher and assistant basketball coach at the Moore Catholic High School in Graniteville, New York, in January amid allegations she had sex dozens of times with the 16-year-old student, including on the Staten Island campus. She was formally arrested and charged Monday, before being released without bail.

Court papers claim Mahoney romped with the teen “on numerous occasions, that is at least two times per week during the period” between Oct. 31, 2013, and Jan. 9, 2014.

In addition to the 30 counts of statutory rape, Mahoney is also charged with four counts of “criminal sexual act” because of mutual oral sex she and the boy allegedly engaged in “at least two times per month during said period.”

WND has been documenting the rash of female teachers having sexual relations with their students in recent years, and Limbaugh said he was perplexed by the seemingly endless parade of women engaged in such activity with their students.

“It’s amazing the number of female teachers,” Limbaugh said on his national radio broadcast Tuesday afternoon. “That’s not supposed to happen, right? That isn’t supposed to be able to happen. This is supposed to be the other way around. It’s certainly not the template. It’s a mystery how this happens.”

“It never happened when I was in school,” he continued. “It never ever happened when I was in school, damn it. Anyway, it’s a sign of the changing times.”
