A dis¬≠turb¬≠ing law¬≠suit has been filed by the par¬≠ents of a 14-year-old girl in Marl¬≠boro, New Jer¬≠sey, alleg¬≠ing that their daugh¬≠ter was groomed and assault¬≠ed by her female teacher. The law¬≠suit sheds light on the details of how the teacher alleged¬≠ly engaged in inap¬≠pro¬≠pri¬≠ate behav¬≠ior, includ¬≠ing sex¬≠u¬≠al con¬≠ver¬≠sa¬≠tions and grop¬≠ing the stu¬≠den¬≠t‚Äôs breasts in a school hallway. 

Incident Details


The inci­dent took place on March 13 at Marl­boro Memo­r­i­al Mid­dle School, where Jen­na Scia­bi­ca, a spe­cial edu­ca­tion lan­guage arts teacher, alleged­ly fon­dled the stu­dent. Accord­ing to court doc­u­ments, Scia­bi­ca called the stu­dent over while stand­ing in the door­way of her class­room. She then pro­ceed­ed to touch, mas­sage, and rub the girl’s breasts, with a grat­i­fy­ing smile on her face. The assault was cap­tured on cam­era, pro­vid­ing evi­dence of the incident.

Allegations Against Sciabica


The law¬≠suit claims that Scia¬≠bi¬≠ca had pri¬≠or famil¬≠iar¬≠i¬≠ty with the vic¬≠tim, as she had been tutor¬≠ing her younger sib¬≠lings who have spe¬≠cial needs for over a year. The fam¬≠i¬≠ly also alleges that Scia¬≠bi¬≠ca engaged in sex¬≠u¬≠al¬≠ly explic¬≠it con¬≠ver¬≠sa¬≠tions and flir¬≠ta¬≠tious behav¬≠ior with female stu¬≠dents in her class¬≠room and in front of oth¬≠er teach¬≠ers. Anoth¬≠er stu¬≠dent, who has not joined the law¬≠suit, claimed that Scia¬≠bi¬≠ca repeat¬≠ed¬≠ly tried to obtain her phone num¬≠ber and open¬≠ly dis¬≠cussed sex¬≠u¬≠al top¬≠ics with her 10‚Äď14-year-old students.

School’s Response


The fam¬≠i¬≠ly con¬≠tends that the school guid¬≠ance coun¬≠selor was informed of Scia¬≠bi¬≠ca‚Äôs inap¬≠pro¬≠pri¬≠ate con¬≠ver¬≠sa¬≠tions but failed to take any action. Dur¬≠ing a pub¬≠lic meet¬≠ing, the vic¬≠tim‚Äôs moth¬≠er referred to Scia¬≠bi¬≠ca as a ‚Äúpreda¬≠tor‚ÄĚ and accused the Marl¬≠boro Board of Edu¬≠ca¬≠tion of neg¬≠li¬≠gence in pre¬≠vent¬≠ing the inci¬≠dent. The board respond¬≠ed by sus¬≠pend¬≠ing Scia¬≠bi¬≠ca and sub¬≠se¬≠quent¬≠ly charg¬≠ing her with harass¬≠ment, a mis¬≠de¬≠meanor offense.

Legal Proceedings


The law¬≠suit, filed in Mon¬≠mouth Coun¬≠ty Supe¬≠ri¬≠or Court, names Scia¬≠bi¬≠ca, the school dis¬≠trict, the school board, and the Marl¬≠boro super¬≠in¬≠ten¬≠dent as defen¬≠dants. The fam¬≠i¬≠ly seeks unspec¬≠i¬≠fied dam¬≠ages for their daugh¬≠ter‚Äôs suf¬≠fer¬≠ing. Addi¬≠tion¬≠al¬≠ly, oth¬≠er indi¬≠vid¬≠u¬≠als are accused of mak¬≠ing false state¬≠ments, defam¬≠ing, or libel¬≠ing the fam¬≠i¬≠ly. Scia¬≠bi¬≠ca‚Äôs attor¬≠ney has dis¬≠missed the law¬≠suit as base¬≠less, assert¬≠ing that the alle¬≠ga¬≠tions are defam¬≠a¬≠to¬≠ry and moti¬≠vat¬≠ed by finan¬≠cial gain. The attor¬≠ney main¬≠tains that Scia¬≠bi¬≠ca has an unblem¬≠ished record and pre¬≠dicts com¬≠plete exon¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tion once the facts are pre¬≠sent¬≠ed in court.
