Ex-teacher sentenced for student sex assaults

072814-Jaclyn-MelilloMIDDLESEX COUNTY — Former Sayreville War Memorial High School teacher Jaclyn Melillo has received a four-year state prison term for sexually assaulting two 16-year-old boys at various locations in the borough separately over a period of several months.

Middlesex County Superior Court Judge Bradley Ferencz sentenced Melillo, 25, of Sayreville, requiring her to register as a sex offender who will be subject to parole supervision for life, according to Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey.

Melillo also must surrender her teaching certificate and Ferencz banned her from holding a public sector job in the state.

In March, Melillo pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault as part of an agreement reached with Middlesex County Deputy First Assistant Prosecutor Christie L. Bevacqua.

Melillo was arrested and charged Oct. 10, 2013, after Prosecutor’s Office Investigator James Kelly and Sayreville Detective Lou Becker determined that she had sexually assaulted the boys.
