(Fort Lauderdale, Florida) A 28-year-old algebra teacher at Plainfield (NJ) High School, Jennelin Garcia-Calle, has been accused of engaging in sex with a 16-year-old male student.
Reportedly, when Garcia-Calle learned that a warrant had been issued for her arrest, she fled to Florida. U.S. Marshals apprehended Garcia-Calle in South Florida this week after tracking her through cell phone and text messages.
“It was in her classroom after school,” said prosecutor Ted Romankow. “The door was locked, the window was blocked and they had the relations there.”[…]Garcia-Calle awaits extradition to New Jersey to face sex assault charges.
“She had told either friends or associates that she was going to South Florida to get help,” said U.S. Marshal’s spokesperson Barry Golden.
“Obviously Ms. Garcia-Calle was aware that these charges were forthcoming. She was aware that she was probably going to be in a lot of trouble and that’s when she fled the New Jersey area.”
