A New Jersey physical education instructor was incarcerated following allegations from an ex-student about an inappropriate relationship during the student's high school years.
Lydia Pinto, 38, previously employed at Bridgewater-Raritan High School, faced charges on November 8, including first-degree aggravated sexual assault and two counts of second-degree sexual assault. The arrest occurred peacefully.
This case unfolded when the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office initiated a probe into Pinto's actions on October 16, triggered by an anonymous email received by the Bridgewater Police Department, which described the alleged misconduct with the student.
