3 NJ teachers accused of sex contact with students

Updated:

CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - Three teachers and two administrators at a New Jersey high school have been arrested on charges stemming from allegations the teachers had sexual relationships with students.

Camden County Prosecutor Warren Faulk said Thursday the principal and vice principal at Triton High School in Runnemede were charged with official misconduct for allegedly failing to report the relationships when they learned about them.

Faulk said the school had a culture that allowed the relationships even though school policies clearly barred them.

Authorities said the consensual relationships - between three male teachers and three female students ages 17 or 18 - occurred between November 2011 and June. They said explicit text messages also were sent during school hours.

The Black Horse Regional School District superintendent said the district is cooperating with authorities.
