Sex Scandal Emerges from Local High School
Three high school teachers in Camden County have been charged with alleged sexual misconduct and have been suspended pending an investigation. Two school administrators are also facing charges.
6abc.com reports today that three female senior students at Triton Regional High School in Runnemede had encounters of a sexual nature with teachers between November 2011 and June 2012. The teachers, along with Triton's principal Catherine DePaul and a vice principal Jernee Kollock accused of covering up the indiscretions, are facing varying charges of misconduct.
Allegedly the two school administrators were aware of the sexual encounters but took no action against teachers, whom Philly.com has identified as Nicholas Martinelli, Jeffrey Logandro, and Daniel Michielli,instead choosing to remain quiet. In the wake of the Jerry Sandusky Penn State scandal, this could prove to be the biggest error in judgement.
A press conference by the Camden County Prosecutor's Office detailing the investigation will begin at 3 p.m. Check back to SoJO1049.com for updates.
