The Asbury Park Press reports that Sandra Brower was returned to her job as Lacey Township school superintendent on Monday night.

Brower and her former boss, ex-Wall Township school superintendent James Habel, were charged last year with official misconduct. It was alleged the pair conspired to cover up an allegation that a teacher had molested a 4-year-old, an allegation turned out to be unfounded.

A grand jury had indicted the pair last May, and Brower was suspended by Lacey school officials. But Brower and Habel were cleared in January after new evidence surfaced.

Habel still faces a separate indictment charging him with fraud.
