Sex offenses against children alleged in Jersey City school

When parents send their children off to school they expect that the children will be in good hands throughout the day, learning valuable information and skills that will help them succeed in life. In the vast majority of schools throughout the country, that is exactly what happens. However, when there are allegations of inappropriate relationships between teachers and students, the trust that parents had can be shattered in such a way that there may not be a recovery.

According to a recent report, this may be the case in Jersey City, where a 32-year-old female teacher was arrested on June 19 on allegations involving sex offenses against children. Although there were scant details in the initial reports, it appears that the teacher is alleged to have been engaged in an inappropriate relationship with at least one 15-year-old female student.

The reports indicate that the teacher will be facing charges of aggravated sexual assault, as well as endangering the welfare of a child. It appears that other teachers in the school may have reported the purported relationship to school officials after the teacher and student were allegedly observed engaging in "inappropriate interactions" during a school trip.

Any New Jersey criminal defense attorney would likely be able to tell our readers that, for this teacher, even if the allegations are eventually found to be without merit, her career in education may be over forever. These types of sex crimes allegations are not something that will fade with time and this can be an unfortunate, immediate result, despite the fact that the criminal justice process has yet to play out. It has, in fact, only just begun in this case.
