MONTGOMERY TOWNSHIP, New Jersey — A 29-year-old high school teacher has been busted for allegedly sending racy text messages and nude pictures of herself to one of her students.
Michelina Aichele, an English teacher at Montgomery Township High School had allegedly been sending the steamy pics to her 17-year-old male student for months before school officials caught wind and reported it to police, the Somerset County Prosecutor’s office said.
Montgomery Township police interviewed the student who “provided details of sexually explicit conversations that defendant Aichele engaged in with him through social media sites and email,” the prosecutor’s office said in a statement.
Aichele, of Hillsborough, was arrested on Friday, authorities said. She was charged with second-degree endangering the welfare of a child.
Aichele was making $72,500 as a teacher at Montgomery high school and had been teaching there since 2012.
