A southern New Jersey school teacher who had a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student has been sentenced to six years in state prison.
Ocean County prosecutors say 32-year-old Erin Haskell of Barnegat also will be subject to lifetime parole supervision and must register as a sex offender under the sentence imposed Monday. She had pleaded guilty last August to sexual assault.
Haskell was a Spanish teacher with the Toms River Regional school district. She worked at the Intermediate South school in Beachwood, where she also served as faculty adviser to the drama club.
