Wall Township Teacher Accused of Sex With Student
A 22-year-old teacher in the Wall Township system reportedly is accused of carrying on an affair with a 15-year-old student.
News 12 reports that Kalee Warnick was charged and released on $50,000 bail Wednesday. The complaint charges her with aggravated criminal sexual contact and endangering the welfare of a child.
Wall Police were notified of the incident on July 14 according to the Patch of Wall which reports she is an English teacher and one of four teachers hired by for the school board for summer in-home instruction.
The teacher's attorney, Alton Kenney, tells The Associated Press she will plead not guilty "because she is, in fact, not guilty." He says he expects her to be exonerated and return to work as a teacher.
Attorney James Maggs, who is assisting the boy's family, says he has gone through a "horrible ordeal."
The report says that Warnick has a court appearance scheduled for August 6.
