EX-TEACHER PLEADS GUILTY TO STATUTORY-RAPE CHARGE

A former high school teacher pleaded guilty Wednesday to a statutory-rape charge for having had sex with a student three years ago.

Mark Taussig, 29, who resigned in November from his teaching position at Galway High School and moved to Florida, admitted in City Court to having had sex with a 15-year-old girl in his Glenville residence in 1992.

Taussig could face 1 1/3 to 4 years in state prison when he is sentenced May 2. Taussig also was to face two counts of third-degree sodomy in Saratoga County Court today..

Taussig, who surrendered Tuesday to state police, is accused of having had sex with two teen-age girls on two separate occasions in a classroom in Galway High.
