Middlesex County prosecutors say 25-year-old Jaclyn Melillo of Sayreville faces a four-year state prison term when she’s sentenced May 19. She also will forfeit her teaching certificate, must register as a sex offender and will be on lifetime parole supervision once she’s freed from prison.

Melillo pleaded guilty Tuesday to two counts of sex assault. Prosecutors say the assaults occurred between May and August 2013 at various locations in Sayreville.

She was an English teacher at Sayreville War Memorial High School for about two years. She was arrested last October after school authorities heard about the sex assaults and contacted police.
