Fatima Grupico a 24 year old New Jersey Catholic high school teacher was arrested on Thursday after allegedly having sex with a 17 year old student.
During the history teacher’s arraignment, she was charged with sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child at Cardinal McCarrick High school.
Middlesex County prosecutors assert that the sexual relationship between the teacher and the minor took place in May at the South Amboy school which was shuttered last month by the Diocese of Metuchen because of flagging enrollment.
Since unemployed, Grupico is now in the custody at the South Amboy Police department where she awaits for bail to be set.
At present it is not necessarily understood why the teacher chose to sexually prey on the youth whilst commentators on the web have taken to congratulating the boy for ‘his score’ whilst others question the degree of exploitation the teacher as an adult and a position of authority put over the boy.
