A female high school teacher lured students to her home, plied

16 years old. The encounters began with mutual touching and
fondling at the school.

daughter would comment.
Her attorney, George Fufidio, of White Plains, was out of town.
His partner, Robert Mancuso, said Stein is innocent: "The
allegations are untrue, and we will aggressively defend against
