    A former teacher in northern New Jersey already accused of molesting several of his students is facing additional charges.

    The Morris County Prosecutor's office said Thursday that Jason Fennes has been indicted on sexual assault and child endangerment charges for allegedly engaging in sex with a former student who was underage.

    Prosecutors say the 39-year-old Bloomfield resident engaged in sex with a Butler High School student he was supervising as an assistant track coach. Prosecutors say the alleged actions occurred when the girl was between 14 and 16.

    Fennes was indicted on Tuesday on sexual assault and child endangerment charges for allegedly molesting four female first-graders between the ages of six and seven over a period of three years.

    An attorney representing Fennes didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.
