A 61-year-old math teacher has been sentenced to 60 days in jail for stalking a student, Morris County Prosecutor Robert Carroll announced on Monday.
Tajinder Tung, of Stewartsville, was sentenced in Morris County Superior Court on Friday as a condition of a three-year probationary term after a jury found him guilty last month.
Stewartsville is within Greenwich Township in Warren County.
Tung will serve his sentence at Morris County jail.
He was previously convicted of stalking a Mount Olive High School student while he was a teacher there, between 2017 and May 2019.
When sentenced, Tung also was ordered to give up his public employment.
He had been suspended without pay when the issue was reported to authorities.
However, state officials in 2020 found that Tung was to be paid from August 2019 until his official indictment on a stalking charge in early November 2019.
