MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. (KYW Newsradio) — Criminal charges have been filed against a 30-year-old Burlington County woman, accused of having sex with a student at the high school where she is a special education teacher.

Alexandra Reiner of Eastampton is charged with sexual assault and child endangerment against an unidentified male student at Rancocas Valley Regional High School in December. County Prosecutor Scott Coffina, in a press release, said his office had received information "concerning a possible inappropriate relationship between Reiner and the student." The release stated there were incidents in Mount Holly and Lumberton.             

Further information on the alleged victim was not provided "in an effort to protect his identity."

Rancocas Valley School Superintendent Dr. Christopher Heilig declined to discuss the situation, but he released a letter he sent to parents. In it he said the school immediately alerted the prosecutor’s office when they learned of the matter.

The letter further states that Reiner was barred from campus and access to students.

A school spokesman tells KYW Newsradio Reiner has now been placed on administrative leave.
