Three Plead Guilty in Runnemede Teachers’ Probe
An investigation into reports several male teachers were having improper relationships with female students at a southern New Jersey high school has led to guilty pleas by two teachers and the principal.
Camden County prosecutors say 32-year-old Jeff Logandro and 27-year-old Daniel Michielli both pleaded guilty Monday to third-degree conspiracy to commit official misconduct. The two former math teachers at Triton Regional High School in Runnemede admitted to having improper, physical relationships with two female students.
They both agreed to 30 days detention and face probation when sentenced March 15. They will also be barred from holding public employment in New Jersey.
Triton’s former principal, 55-year-old Catherine DePaul, pleaded guilty to failing to report a crime. She has been sentenced to a year’s probation, was required to forfeit her job and will also be disqualified from public employment in New Jersey.
