    NJ~1st grade teacher, Jason Fennes charged with sex abuse of students

    False rumors?? We shall see. Looks to me as if Fennes moved around a good bit. I wonder why?

    March 10, 2012

    "A former Montville first-grade teacher arrested earlier this week on charges he sexually abused a female student in 2005 was arrested again Friday night on charges he sexually abused another student, according to the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office. Jason Fennes, 37, of Bloomfield, was arrested..."


    "...Fennes, formerly of Boonton, was charged with two counts of sexual assault and one count of endangering the welfare of a child. The gender of the child was not released, but Fennes is alleged to have committed the crimes on the student at the William Mason Elementary School during the 2006-2007 school year...."


    "...Fennes, who taught first grade at William Mason, was arrested last Monday on charges of sexually assaulting a female first grader at the school between January and June of 2005...."


    "....[Fennes’ attorney, Juilian] Wilsey told The Star-Ledger his client was the target of false "rumors" spread by a man who sent Fennes’ life "into a tailspin" in 2008 while Finnes was dating the man’s estranged wife...."

    A former first-grade teacher for William Mason Elementary School in Montville pleaded guilty Thursday to molesting four female pupils and having sex with a 15-year-old he met working as an assistant track coach for Butler High School in 1997.

    The guilty pleas entered by Jason Fennes, now 42, to two counts of aggravated sexual assault and three counts of sexual assault resolve an aging case that would have required testimony by five young victims if the charges went to trial.


    Besides the Morris County charges, Fennes was charged with sexually abusing a little girl at Cedar Hill Prep School in the Somerset section of Franklin Township, where he went to work as a teacher after reaching an agreement with Montville school officials to leave the district in 2010. Fennes told Taylor on Thursday that his plea agreement in Somerset County is for a seven-year term that would run concurrent to the stint he receives in Morris County.

    Sentencing is tentatively scheduled for December 2.
