    Gym teacher charged with sexually assaulting students

    A Hammonton High School physical education/health teacher was arrested Wednesday evening and charged with official misconduct and sexual crimes involving three male students, Atlantic County Prosecutor Jeffrey S. Blitz said.

    Traci J. Tapp, 28, was arrested without incident at her home in Leon Court in the Atco section of Waterford Township by officers from the prosecutorís office and the Hammonton Police Department.

    Tapp was charged with one count of sexual assault, two counts of aggravated criminal sexual contact and three counts of official misconduct.

    Traci J. Tapp, 28, who was hired at Hammonton High School in January 2001, was suspended with pay in March 2005 after a mother of one of the students brought the allegations to the attention of school officials, according to the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office.

    Tapp is accused of fondling one 17-year-old student in 2001 after inviting him into her office in the girls locker room at the high school. She is also accused of having sexual contact with another 17-year-old inside her home in 2001. A third student - a 16-year-old - had sex with her at her home in 2003, according to the prosecutor.

    She was being held Wednesday night at the Atlantic County jail, with bail set at $25,000.

    It was not clear whether she had retained an attorney.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    HAMMONTON, N.J. (CBS 3) ― A South Jersey teacher-sex scandal made national headlines Thursday, raising questions over whether all sex offenders are treated the same. In this particular case, a female teacher who had sex with a male student, walked away with no jail time.

    Tapp, who faced jail time, pleaded guilty to offensive touching. She never stood trial on statutory rape charges.

    "It makes it more difficult for the prosecution to prove their case when the victim or witness in the case doesn't cooperate because they have special feelings towards the person who victimized them," said Attorney and former Assistant Prosecutor Vince Sarubbi.
