A former teacher from Quakertown, accused of having sex with a 17-year-old male student, has pleaded not guilty to a charge of corrupting a minor. 39-year-old Gabrielle Marvelli allegedly had sex with the boy at a motel the weekend of the senior prom at William Allen High School in Allentown, where she had taught business classes since 2007. She no longer works for the school district. The Lehigh County District Attorney says the alleged incident occurred a week before they boy’s 18th birthday, and Marvelli could not have been prosecuted if it happened after he turned 18.
