Students React To Charges Against NJ Teachers, Administrators

Posted: Updated:
RUNNEMEDE, N.J. -

Students are reacting after three teachers are charged with having sex with students at a New Jersey high school.

Nicholas Martinelli, Daniel Michielli and Jeffrey Logandro are teachers at Triton Regional High School in Runnemede.

All three are charged with having inappropriate sexual relations with three female students from November 2011 until this past June.

School Principal Catherine DePaul and Vice Principal Jernee Kollock are charged with official misconduct for covering up the allegations.

Prosecutors say they were told about the abuse but did nothing about it.

All five teachers and administrators are currently on suspension. Their first appearance in court is next week.

FOX 29's Steve Keeley was outside the high school on Friday morning as students and parents offered their reactions to the scandal.

Those included one teen boy who was wearing a white T-shirt with a handwritten message that read "Free Ms. DePaul."

Others said the incident is "disgraceful" and Triton's community members should better represent Triton by ignoring what people are saying on Facebook or elsewhere and taking pride in their school.
