ROSELLE — A Catholic high school teacher was arrested at her Linden home on charges of having a sexual relationship with a student.

Roselle Catholic began an investigation into the allegations made against technology teacher Theresa Hrindo, 25, and contacted the Union County Prosecutor's Office.

Hrindo had sexual relations with the student several times between December and February at several different locations in the county, according to Union County Acting Prosecutor Grace Park.

The 2010 graduate of the school also faces charges for hindering apprehension because she deleted incriminated photos and other files from the student's phone.

Authorities did not say how she had access to the student's phone. Authorities did not release the student's age or gender.

In a letter to parents, principal Thomas Berrios said Hrindo was suspended when Park was notified.

Hrindo is being held in the Union County Jail until her first court appearance, according to Park.

Park asked anyone with information about Hrindo’s activities to call the Prosecutor's Office at 908-220-4323.
