The Princeton Police arrested a former Hun School of Princeton theater teacher today and charged him with sexually assaulting a female student who was 16 at the time the assaults took place.
Nolan A. Johnson, 39, of Morrisville has been charged with three counts of second-degree sexual assault and one count of second-degree endangering the welfare of a child.
Hun School officials contacted Princeton Police earlier this month with information they received regarding this case and an investigation began.
Nolan allegedly engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior with the 16 year-old female victim on multiple occasions between June and July while he was the victim’s Hun School teacher. The incidents occurred both on and off campus.
The charges were a result of an ongoing investigation between Princeton Police detectives and Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office detectives.
“We find Mr. Johnson’s actions, as described by police, deplorable and we are saddened by their inevitable impact,” Hun Headmaster Jonathan Brougham said in a written statement. “Our policies and expectations in this area are clear. And, under no circumstances will we tolerate a violation of the basic trust between teacher and student. Mr. Johnson was immediately dismissed after acknowledging to law enforcement officials an inappropriate relationship with a student. Earlier, the former theater teacher was placed on leave as soon as we learned of the misconduct and notified the police. We have and will continue to assist the authorities in their ongoing investigation. Our first priority is for the privacy and well-being of the student involved. We ask that members of the community understand and respect this need.”
Anyone with information on this case should contact Detective Annette Henderson at (609) 921-2100 Ext. 1818 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
