Burlington County, NJ, Teacher Sentenced For Sexual Relationship With Student
A former substitute teacher in Burlington County has been sentenced for having a sexual relationship with a student.
Burlington County Prosecutor LaChia Bradshaw's office says 43-year-old Kameelah Kareem of Willingboro Township had previously pleaded guilty to second-degree sexual assault.
Last week, Kareem was sentenced to five years in state prison.
An investigation began in early 2021 after authorities were made aware of a possible inappropriate relationship between Kareem and a 15-year-old male student during the 2019-20 school year.
Kareem served as a substitute teacher at the Alternative School at Bookbinder in Willingboro on various dates between November 2019 and March 2020.
The investigation revealed that Kareem had met with the student on multiple occasions outside of school.
Further details have been withheld in an attempt to protect his identity.
