"I write this not as a booster of Albany, which I am, nor an apologist for the city, which I sometimes am, but rather as a person whose imagination has become fused with a single place, and in that place finds all the elements that a man ever needs..." -W. Kennedy, from O Albany!

Giesel's defenders...

You knew it was coming: A published argument in favor of not prosecuting Geisel, this one claiming that not only did the boys blackmail Giesel, but the parents of one of the boys tried to blackmail CBA with the story after their son was expelled for various criminal mischief. Lovely. The final analysis:
We don’t believe that the 16-year-old in this situation is any victim or guiltless in this situation. In fact, we think the district attorney’s office should take a hard look at possible criminal charges against him.
Ouch. I'm not ready to approach that point of view yet, but my evaluation of the case is definitely shifting. More on this when i get back to SmAlbany next week. [are you finally ready to get off Soares' back about this?-ed. I didn't say that...]

No indictment in Geisel case
Updated: 9/2/2005 1:45:52 PM
By: Capital News 9 web staff

After hours of grand jury testimony, there's still no indictment in the case of a former CBA teacher accused of having sex with a student.

Sandra "Beth" Geisel was in Albany County Court on Friday for a grand jury hearing on the charges against her. She testified during the closed door hearing.

Several teenage boys were also seen in the courthouse Friday, but prosecutors wouldn't comment on whether they were involved in the case.

Geisel was out on bail for the rape charges until two weeks ago when she was arrested for DWI.

The grand jury will meet again next Friday.
