A 43-year-old spe­cial edu­ca­tion teacher in New Jer­sey has been arrest­ed for alleged­ly sex­u­al­ly assault­ing one of her students. 

Alli­son Have­mann-Niedrach, who described her­self as a ‘pas­sion­ate, results-dri­ven and sin­cere edu­ca­tor’ on her LinkedIn pro­file, was tak­en into cus­tody ear­li­er this week on charges of first-degree aggra­vat­ed sex­u­al assault and sec­ond-degree child wel­fare endangerment.

The inves­ti­ga­tion by the Mon­mouth Coun­ty Pros­e­cu­tor’s Office and the Free­hold Police Depart­ment revealed that Have­mann-Niedrach alleged­ly began sex­u­al­ly abus­ing a stu­dent ear­li­er this year. 

It is unclear how many times she alleged­ly assault­ed the stu­dent or the stu­den­t’s age, though the Free­hold Inter­me­di­ate School where she taught only serves stu­dents from sixth to eighth grade.

In a mes­sage to par­ents, the Free­hold Bor­ough School Dis­trict Super­in­ten­dent referred to Have­mann-Niedrach as a ‘for­mer staff mem­ber’ when announc­ing her arrest. 

The school dis­trict stat­ed it has been ‘ful­ly coop­er­a­tive with the pros­e­cu­tor’s office since the out­set of this inves­ti­ga­tion’ and that the ‘safe­ty and well-being of our stu­dents and staff have been our top priority.’

Have­mann-Niedrach is now being held at the Mon­mouth Coun­ty Jail with­out bail pend­ing her first court appear­ance and hear­ing to deter­mine whether she will con­tin­ue to be detained while await­ing tri­al. Her attor­ney has stat­ed that she ‘main­tains her inno­cence at this time.’
