Hun School Teacher Charged with Sexual Assaulting Student


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.”

    1. That is a disgusting and deplorable accusation. She was a victim by the very fact that she was 16, despite any other details. If that perverted teacher had any sense, he would have stayed far away from her. There are even girls in the school who are 18 and of age if he wanted to fulfill some “student-teacher” fantasy. If you can’t control who you pursue sexually you are not even human, but an animal (humans have reasoning and self-control). Also, you have no idea what the situation is. That man is more than twice her age, he could have gotten any piece of information (for example a sexual picture of her or the fact that she cheated on something) and used it as leverage to coerce her into sexual activity. However even if that is not the case, he is an adult who fully knows the law and was fully knowledgeable that he was assulting a child. Now he will have plenty of time to think about it in prison and afterwards when he has to register as a child sex offender.

  1. Innocent until proven guilty; he has been accused not convicted? It has happened that innocent people have not only been accused but have been found guilty and sent to jail. In any case, innocent or guilty, his reputation has been ruined forever.

    1. In a statement to the alumni community, the headmaster stated that he has admitted to the allegations.

    2. In the article, it states that he admitted the inappropriate relations, thus he was fired. I’m all for innocent until proven guilty, but when a person confesses guilt, you pretty much have to believe him and conclude he’s guilty.

      1. I went to the school we called him Johnson it was a nickname we also called the theatre director Bogad even though he was Mr. Bogad.

  2. I don’t go Hun anymore, so heard about this through a friend still there.
    And I can’t believe it. You think you know a guy. If he’s guilty, I just don’t know.

      1. The age of consent in New Jersey is 16, but there are exceptions. Such as when the victim is between 16 and less than 18, and:

        “The actor has supervisory or disciplinary power over the victim by virtue of the actor’s legal, professional, or occupational status.”

        So being a teacher-student relationship is the key fact here.

  3. His now ex-wife taught at my school and he helped out with the play. He was a complete jerk and was really mean to all of the students. All in all I’m not surprised

  4. Adventure Aquarium hired Nolan Johnson to work for them as the Guest Experience Manager.
