A man who was working for a security company at Millville Senior High School has been charged for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a teen student.

54-year-old J.T. Banks was arrested on Wednesday and charged with second-degree sexual assault and second-degree endangering the welfare of a child.

a 16-year-old victim on multiple occasions between October 2022 and this past July.

At that time, Banks was employed as a contract employee with the Millville School District as a school security specialist through a security company and was assigned to Millville Senior High School.
