A woman who taught at an all-boys Catholic high school in Yonkers surrendered to the police yesterday after allegedly raping a teen student. Amanda Iles, 27, had moved to California but returned to New York to face rape charges.

Iles is accused of having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student between June 11 and July 14 of this year. She resigned from her job in the religious studies department at Archbishop Stepinac High School before the alleged rape occurred. According to the Ossining Daily Voice, "Iles reportedly knew the boy was a student at the school. The boy's parents became aware of the encounters and contacted Yonkers police." The encounters allegedly took place in Eastchester.

Westchester DA Janet DiFiore said, "As a teacher, this defendant was in a position of trust and authority. In becoming involved with a student incapable of consent, she abused that privilege."

Iles' bail was set at at $75,000 bond over $25,000 cash. She could be sentenced to up to seven years in prison if convicted. Her next court date is in December.
