A high school teacher in Maplewood has been charged with sexually assaulting three 15-year-old students on school property and in her car multiple times, Essex County Prosecutor and Maplewood Police announced today.
Nicole Dufault, 35, of Caldwell, has been accused of assaulting the three boys during the 2013-2014 school year and during summer school in 2013 and 2014, authorities said.
Dufault was arrested last night at her home and charged with multiple counts of aggravated sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
The three victims were 15-year-old boys attending Columbia High School, where Dufault has been employed as a language arts teacher for about nine years.
Authorities allege Dufault had oral sex and vaginal intercourse with the students on school property and in her car on multiple occasions.
Police are trying to trace a gang of young boys in connection with sexual assaults on a jogger and a teenage girl in Brockwell Park in south London.
The suspects are described as being as young as 10, with Trainee Detective Constable Jen Barley saying: “This is very unusual and aggressive behaviour by males of such a young age.”
A spokesman for the Met said on Monday, August 11 at approximately 6.30pm a 28-year-old woman was jogging in the park when she was approached by two boys on bicycles who grabbed her buttocks.
She confronted the boys and they shouted abuse of a violent sexual nature at her.
The second offence took place on Saturday, August 16 around 6pm, when three boys approached a 16-year-old girl, who was sitting in Brockwell Park with a friend, from behind.
The spokesman said:
“One of the boys grabbed the 16-year-old’s breasts and groped her.
The victim escaped his hold and stood up; the boy grabbed the victim again pulling her close to his body.
She broke free and ran off. The boy then shouted abuse of a violent sexual nature at the victim and exposed himself.”
Officers in Lambeth Borough are appealing for the public’s help in identifying the boys wanted in connection with the sexual offences.

An Everett, Pennsylvania, teenager faces charges for “desecrating a venerated object” after the boy posted Facebook photos of himself receiving simulated head from a Jesus statue.
Police say the desecration took place at Love In the Name of Christ church. Apparently this isn’t a proper way to express that Christ-love?
Desecrating a venerated object—defined as “defacing, damaging, polluting, or otherwise physically mistreating in a way that the actor knows will outrage the sensibilities”—is a second-degree misdemeanor in Pennsylvania, with a possible punishment of up to two years jail time.
The Jesus photos came to law enforcement’s attention after the teen posted them to Facebook.
As students prepare to return for another school year at Waukesha South High School, police are trying to determine if a 16 year old should be behind bars.
Court papers revealed school leaders received notification images of young girls were available and being viewed by classmates in a Dropbox account. Police determined more than 30 photos showed racy images.
“He solicited these photographs from these women, then not only kept them to himself but then shared them,” explained Captain Ron Oremus, with the Waukesha Police Department.
Oremus said some of the images were clearly exposed underage girls. The investigation determined the pictures included pornographic pictures of some current and former female students.
Police say the boy requested the images from the girls, then made them available online for his friends to gawk at.
“If they look at those images and they learn something on there is illegal and they don’t report it they are just as culpable for possession if they don’t report it,” said Oremus.
While investigators try to piece together this disturbing child porn investigation they’re asking teenagers to think twice before sending anything.
“This is the day we live in. We need to cautious with the materials we share with others,” explained Oremus.
The 16 year-old boy could get expelled. He could also face charges of possession and distribution of child porn.
Note: Why do you think adults warn teenagers not to send naked photos of themselves? Why do you think police say it’s child porn? Be critical when reading the news.
In a shocking incident, a 15-year-old boy allegedly raped a 45-year-old woman who was alone in her house.
The incident was reported at Padangady here on Sunday August 31.
A complaint in this regard was filed in Beltangady police station by the woman’s daughter.
The complaint states that when the woman was alone at home, a boy from the neighbourhood came into the house, and after bolting the front door from the inside, he raped her.
Meanwhile, the woman’s daughter came home and on finding the door locked, began calling out for her mother and knocking on the door. But there was no response, the complaint states.
She then noticed the boy inside the house and in her complaint, accused him of raping her mother. It is said that the victim suffers from memory loss.
Soon after the incident came to the knowledge of the locals, they caught hold of the boy and handed him over to the police.
Beltangady police have registered a case and further investigations are on.
Note: Since the woman claims memory loss, and the daughter filed the complain about rape, this story might have alternative interpretations. BBN recommends to always read news stories with a critical eye.
