Two year suspension of NJ teacher for obstruction of justice
Posted on Wednesday, June 11th, 2014
A high school teacher in South Jersey was suspended for two years due to justice obstruction in a sexual assault incident involving another teacher, CBS Philly stated on May 28.
The Board of Examiners concluded that 51-year-old teacher Emma Painter acted unethically in a sexual assault case. Painter reportedly talked to a student who had filed sexual assault charges against another teacher, identified as Erica Umosella. The case in which Painter plead guilty was filed almost two years ago, and she has recently been sentenced to probation and community service. Painter’s two year teacher’s license suspension was decided by the Board after considering her 20 years of service as a teacher.
