    Two former Triton high school teachers are being confined to their homes for 30 days as punishment for charges stemming from inappropriate relationships with students.

    Jeff Logandro, 32, and Daniel Michielli, 27, were both sentenced Friday.

    They both had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit official misconduct for inappropriate relations with students. Neither has to register as a sex offender as part of the sentence.

    Neither spoke about the crime during the sentencing proceedings.

    A third teacher, Nick Martinelli, 28, faces probation after he pleaded guilty Thursday to a fourth-degree count of hindering apprehension. In court he admitted to impeding the progress of investigators looking into an improper relationship he later admitted to having with a Triton student, according to a press release from Camden County Prosecutor's Office spokesman Jason Laughlin.

    As part of his plea, Martinelli isn't allowed to have contact with the former student and must forfeit his teaching certificate. He will receive a year of probation when he is sentenced on April 12, according to Laughlin.

    The school's former principal, Catherine DePaul, 55, has also pleaded guilty and is on probation for one year for failure to report a crime.

    Prosecutors say that in April 2012 that a Triton student alerted a substitute teacher that teachers were having sex with students. In turn, that teacher told DePaul but prosecutors say that the principal failed to report the allegations to law enforcement. As part of her plea, DePaul alos agreed to forfeit her job and never hold a public job in New Jersey again, prosecutors said.

    The school’s vice principal, Jernee Kollock, has also been charged in the case.
