ELIZABETH — Union County Sheriff’s Officers Kenneth Randazza and Joann Huss escort Jennalin M. Garcia-Calle at Newark Liberty Airport after her extradition from Florida. Garcia-Calle, a Plainfield High School teacher, is charged with second-degree sexual assault and fourth-degree child abuse stemming from an alleged sexual relationship with a 16-year-old male student. She fled to Florida upon learning she was under investigation. The 28-year-old teacher was arrested in Davie, Florida by members of the U.S. Marshals Service and was held in the Broward County Jail on $200,000 bail. Union County Sheriff’s officers traveled to Florida and returned Garcia-Calle to New Jersey before transporting her to the Plainfield Police. (Photo by Jim Lowney/County of Union)
As will all criminal defendants, the charges against Garcia-Calle are merely accusations and she is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
