Prosecutor: Teacher admits having inappropriate online chat with 14-year-old male student


NEW BRUNSWICK, New Jersey — A central New Jersey teacher has admitted having an inappropriate online conversation with a 14-year-old male student.

Middlesex County prosecutors announced Monday that 33-year-old Cara Conroy of South Brunswick recently pleaded guilty to child endangerment. Her plea agreement calls for her to receive lifetime parole and surrender her teaching license when she's sentenced Sept. 5.

She also will have to register as a sex offender and will be banned from holding public employment in New Jersey.

Conroy had been suspended without pay from her job as a special education teacher at North Brunswick High School following her arrest in March. She had taught in the district since September 2005.

Prosecutors have said Conroy and the boy discussed engaging in sexual activity with each other during an online chat, but have not disclosed further details. The investigation began after the boy's mother contacted authorities.

Prosecutors have said the teen was not a special education student, but they have not released his name or disclosed further details about him.
