30-year-old Jessica R. Gaeckle of Galloway Township, who was arrested on Friday, has been charged with two counts of second degree official misconduct and one count of third degree hindering apprehension.

The prosecutor's office believes Gaeckle engaged in sexual relations with an 18-year-old Pleasantville High School student on at least two occasions and then directed the student to destroy evidence upon learning of a pending, criminal investigation.

Gaeckle was processed at ACPO and released on a summons.
