Missouri Principal Arrested For Sodomy With Student Over Course Of Months

Missouri State Police have said they believe Elizabeth Giesler tried to cover up the relationship with a 9th grader.

Ste. Genevieve, MO – A female assistant principal in a Missouri high school has been charged with multiple felonies after having sex with a 16-year-old male student at her home in April and May.

Elizabeth Giesler, 39, was arrested on May 18 and charged with three counts of Class E felony sexual contact with a student, three counts of Class D felony statutory sodomy in the second degree, and two counts of statutory rape in the second degree, according to the Daily Journal.

The investigation was conducted by the Missouri State Highway Patrol Division of Drug and Crime Control and began after the 9th grade student told Trooper T.S. Craig that the assistant principal had performed a sexual act on him during an off-campus event in April, KTVI-TV reported.

Police said the 16-year-old victim also told the trooper Giesler had sex with him twice in April and May at her residence.

The investigation was turned over to the prosecutor, who issued a warrant for Giesler’s arrest, the Daily Journal reported.

The father of Giesler’s victim said that his son had known the educator since sixth grade, according to KTVI.

He told KTVI that the family had thought of the assistant principal as an adviser to his son.

“She talked to us about my son and what she can do for him, through life, like, give him a better life because he’s a good football player, so she was going to make sure he got on the right path,” the boy’s father said.

The victim’s grandmother told KTVI that she had thought Giesler was a really nice person who was a good influence on her grandson.

“And I thought she was really going to do something for my grandson, but yeah, she was doing something for him all right,” the grandmother lamented.

The boy has been put in protective custody with state officials for up to 90 days, family members said.

“She took advantage of him,” the boy’s father told KTVI. “She manipulated him because she knew what she was doing.”

Giesler was booked into the Ste. Genevieve County Jail but was able to be released on bond the same day she was arrested.

The Daily Journal reported that Giesler worked for Liberty School District as a teacher before she went to work for Ste. Genevieve Schools in 2014.

@Hi_estComnDenomn You know rapists get bond if they are young , white and female. We've seen this plenty of times. But I'm sure she's an upstanding member of the community and this is just all a big misunderstanding.

She bonded with a 16 year old. Anyone can get bond, depends on the judge. Most likely this was a consensual relationship between the two. Not the same as a guy running around kidnapping people and forcibly raping them. The news of the arrest probably will cost her her job immediately, which would likely limit her influence on future 16 year old boys. I still don't understand why this has become so common these days. Did it happen in the past as much but no one said anything?

@Det_John_Kimble Your feelings don't mean much though. The law is written as it is. The boy is a minor and she is not. By the law, he can't consent.

And I'm sure it happened just as frequently in the past as it does today, but with instant communication, people get sloppy and get caught frequently.

Gee I really don't need a law lesson from a troll with a background in Google searching. But you do understand there's a difference? A drunk driver killing someone versus a person purposely shooting someone - both is considered homicide. Both are treated differently. The DUI guy might get 5 years the other could get the chair.

The extreme racism and anti police BS here is a prime example of what's wrong with you people today. And you want fair treatment from others.

You do realize there are different degrees of each statute don't you? Where was it I said it was OK fucktard? Since you're a Googling idiot, Google Misdemeanor and Felony to begin with. Dumb fuck.

And why has the kid been placed in "protective custody?" That does not speak well of his family/home situation.
