A New Jersey high school softball coach and teacher has been arrested and charged for allegedly engaging in a continuous sexual relationship with an underage male student.
Jullian Clementi Cooper was picked up by law enforcement this week after an unnamed student accused her of bringing him home with her from Wood-Ridge High School for sex. Ms. Cooper is 28 years old.
Cooper taught social studies during the school day and coached the girl’s softball team in the afternoons. She has been suspended from both positions since the allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced.
“She's out of the classroom and she's not part of the faculty now,” said Newark School spokesperson Jim Goodness, according to the Daily Mail. “We view these as very serious accusations.”
Cooper was released Wednesday night on $50,000 bail.
