Montclair Resident / West Orange Teacher Pleads Not Guilty

Erica DePalo, a Montclair resident who taught English at West Orange High School, has pled not guilty to charges of aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault and child endangerment, in a Newark court yesterday. You will recall that DePalo, 33, was arrested on August 31 for having an illegal sexual relationship with a 15-year-old boy who was a student in one of her classes. More details can be found in yesterday’s Star Ledger coverage of the plea entered by the former Teacher of the Year. The case is getting attention not only in the Garden State, but across the country.
