Camden, N.J. – A high school teacher has been charged for repeatedly sexually assaulting an underage victim that began when the victim was her 17-year-old student.
Bridget Sipera, 36, of Cherry Hill, was charged on Aug. 26 in Cherry Hill with one count of second-degree Sexual Assault and one count of second-degree Endangering the Welfare of a Child. She was also charged with one count of second-degree Sexual Assault and one count of second-degree Endangering the Welfare of a Child for crimes that occurred in Gloucester Township.
Detectives began investigating the reported sexual assault that began in January of 2019 when the victim was a student in Sipera’s class at Camden Catholic High School and continued through March of 2020.
The victim told investigators he had sex with the teacher “about 60 times over an 18-month period,” the Courier-Post reported.
Sipera and the student “had sexual intercourse inside of his vehicle at several locations throughout Cherry Hill, including a hotel parking lot, Cooper River Park, (Sipera’s) residence and (Sipera’s) mother’s residence,” the probable cause statement says.
Sipera was voted “Camden Catholic High School’s coolest teacher” in 2013. Detectives said Sipera could face more charges.
