Linda Hardan, 22, could face up to five years in prison after she got physically involved with under-age students. A substitute teacher from Prospect Park, New Jersey, in the U.S, she was working at the nearby Manchester Regional High School, in Haledon, when the incidents happened. According to www.northjersey.com she pleaded guilty on Wednesday to sexting and engaging in sexual activity with under-age students. The legal age of consent in New Jersey is 16. However, there is an exception in the law which prohibits adults from sexual activity with individuals aged between 16 and 18, if the adult is a person in a position of supervisory authority. This includes, teachers, parents, tutors, priests and coaches. Hardan performed oral sex with one 16-year-old student, and also sent sexually explicit photos of herself to a 16-year-old in November 2014. She met both of them while working at the school. When answering questions in court, she also admitted to defence lawyer Alyssa Hascup she had been involved in a similar activity with a 14-year-old student. She sobbed in court as she was asked about the incidents, and was asked by the judge at one point to collect herself. Answering questions from defense attorney Alyssa Hascup, Hardan also admitted that she engaged in similar sexual activity with a 14-year-old student the same month. She said she met the student while she was working as a substitute teacher at the Haledon public schools. Hardan was at one point sobbing so hard that she was unable to answer questions. Judge Miguel de la Carrera gave her a few minutes to collect herself. She pleaded guilty to two counts of child endangerment and one count of second-degree sexual assault.
