A South Plainfield High School teacher named Mallory Christ has been booked and charged for allegedly messaging two unsuitable photos to a male student on social media.
The Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office reported that 29-year-old Mallory Christ of South Plainfield was indicted Monday based on second-degree charges of endangering the welfare of a child.
It was alleged that the school teacher sent a couple of photos of herself to the student sometime in February, according to NJ.
On June 27, the teacher was charged. She is now being held without bail at the Middlesex County Adult Corrections Center in North Brunswick.
An investigation was made by Detective Shaun Clifford of the South Plainfield Police Department and Detective Felix De La Cruz of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office. It was reported that she was charged and the investigation was ongoing.
The investigation, which led to the arrest of the school teacher, began after school administrators came to know about the photos. The school officials contacted police about the photos, which were posted via social media.
According to Middlesex County NJ, she was an employee at the district for two years. She worked at the high school as a math teacher and offered courses in algebra to juniors and math to seniors.
She also acted as the coach of the high school cheerleaders. Earlier, she used to work as a teacher at Sayreville War Memorial High School.
The teacher is a college graduate in mathematics from Rowan University. Her Facebook page do not carry anything inappropriate and on the contrary, it seems like she is a sweet lady who loved her boyfriend.
The investigation is still ongoing. The authorities have insisted people to contact Clifford at 908-755-0700, or De La Cruz at 732-745-3300, if they have any information related to the case.
