Teacher Accused of Having Sex With Student

A 22-year-old female teacher in Wall has been charged with having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old male student.

A complaint filed against high school English teacher Kalee Warnick accuses her of aggravated criminal sexual contact and endangering the welfare of a child.

Warnick, who also worked as summer home instructor, was arrested July 30 and released after posting $50,000 bail.

Monmouth County prosecutors would not provide further details.

The teacher's attorney, Alton Kenney, tells The Associated Press she will plead not guilty “because she is, in fact, not guilty.” He says he expects her to be exonerated and return to work as a teacher.

Attorney James Maggs, who is assisting the boy's family, says he has gone through a “horrible ordeal.”

Warnick is due in court Aug. 6.
