| by Dominic Kelly

A 24-year-old teacher at a Catholic school high in New Jersey was arrested Thursday after it was discovered that she had engaged in sexual activity with a 17-year-old student in school.

Fatima Grupico, 24, has been charged with sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child after an investigation uncovered that she allegedly had sex with the 17-year-old student in school multiple times, New York Daily News reports. Cardinal McCarrick High School closed down last month after enrollment numbers dropped, but the incident happened back in May while the school was still in session.

Grupico was reportedly left unemployed after the school closed, and now she’s currently in police custody awaiting bail to be set, according to NJ.com.
