A female New Jersey Catholic high school teacher who is accused of having a steady sexual relationship with one of her students has been arrested. The 25-year old teacher was under investigation for the last three weeks and at the end of the investigation, she was taken into custody.
In the meantime, latest reports suggest that the woman who had also studied in the same school before moving to the university, and later taking the job in the same school, has been granted bail on the promise that she will not contact the student.
A report in the CBSNews said that the 25-year old technology teacher, Theresa Hrindo, faces charges including sexual assault, endangering the welfare of a child and hindering apprehension. Hrindo reportedly teaches at Roselle Catholic High School.
Authorities allege that the woman actually engaged in sex acts with the student from Dec. 2016 through Feb. 2017, prosecutors said. Prosecutors said Hrindo allegedly deleted “incriminating images and files” from the student’s phone.
Reports suggest that the teacher had sex with the students several times and locations in Union County from December through February. Later, on the behest of the school administration, investigation was initiated by a referral from the Catholic Archdiocese of Newark, which holds jurisdiction over Roselle Catholic.
Hrindo, of Linden, is charged with two counts of sexual assault, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and a single count of hindering apprehension. The last count came as a result of Hrindo allegedly deleting incriminating images and files from the involved student’s phone.
