    A high school librarian in New Rochelle was arrested Wednesday, accused of sending sexually explicit material to a 16-year-old student  in an apparent attempt to seduce him, officials said.

    Marisa Anton, 33, of Yonkers, was working as a librarian at New Rochelle High School when last fall, she began sending e-mails and other electronic messages containing sexual content to a student in an effort to "invite him to engage in sexual conduct with her," said New Rochelle Police.

    The student reported the matter to police on May 27. Anton was arrested when she appeared at the boy's home for what she thought would be a sexual encounter, police said.

    School officials said Anton has been working for the district since Sept. 1, 2008 and that she had no prior criminal record and passed all background checks.

    She has been suspended from her job, officials said.

    Anton was charged with felony first-degree disseminating indecent material to minors. Bail was set at $5,000. Attorney information wasn't immediately available.
