Former teacher admits sending nude pictures to student
MONTGOMERY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A former high school teacher accused of sending nude photos of herself and explicit messages to a male student has pleaded guilty to child endangerment.
Somerset County prosecutors will recommend that Michelina Aichele serve about a year in the county jail when she’s sentenced in July. The 30-year-old Hillsborough resident, who entered her plea Wednesday, must also register as a sex offender and surrender her teaching certificate.
Aichele was charged last October after Montgomery Township school officials contacted authorities. That came after another student told the officials about her relationship with the 16-year-old male student.
The victim told authorities that Aichele had sexual conversations with him through social media and email.
Authorities say Aichele used her school email address to send sexually explicit messages.
