A 22-year-old Wall Township woman was charged this week with aggravated criminal sexual contact with a student, county prosecutor's records show.

Kalee Warnick, of the Deer Run section of Wall, is currently listed on the Wall Township Schools website as a teacher in the English Department. The district did not confirm her status at this time.

According to police documents, Warnick allegedly had an improper relationship with a 15-year-old male student that included sexual contact. The warrant does not go into further detail about the nature of the incident.

The complaint, out of Wall Township, charges Warnick with aggravated criminal sexual contact, a third degree crime, and one count of having a sexual relationship with a minor she had responsibility of the care of, which is a second degree crime.

The incident was reported to Wall Police on July 14, according to the court documents.

Warnick works as an English teacher for the high school, and at the May school board meeting she was one of four teachers approved for summer in-home instruction for a student at a rate of $52 an hour for 10 hours.

Warnick was charged July 30 and $50,000 bail was set. The next court appearance is scheduled for 8 a.m. Aug. 6.

With additional reporting by Keith Brown.

I will let the readers and taxpayers decide if $52/hr is reasonable for someone fresh out of college with a ba degree

So bobbotb, what you are saying is that you are too chicken to do your own research that will very well prove you wrong. Thus, ALL of your comments have no meaning because you don't even know if they are based in fact. You proved me correct that you are a low information person, just here to throw potshots like a bully. BTW, you must be shaking because you posted the same comment three times

Spoken like a true taker!

I believe she is guilty. Of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion. That is certainly OK....It just doesn't look to good. The last few educators who were caught pleaded not guilty only to plead GULITY. I personally am sick of all these educators making excuses by trying to blame everything and everybody. Just stop the fibbing and own up to what you did. Take responsibility and stop with all the b.s excuses.
Jerry August 08, 2013 at 08:11 AM
@John Wayne - to blow a hole in your theory, there was an incident that ultimately brought down Habel. A supposed improper sexual comment turned out to be NOT true after all. Innocent until proven guilty. You are entitled to that along with anyone else. That's our system of justice. Now, you are entitled to your opinion, but rush's to judgement should be couched in opinions, NOT absolutes. @Proud, you could easily be construed as a mental moron with your comments. Grow up and get real instead of acting like a child.
proud August 08, 2013 at 09:35 AM
@Jerry, I mean Mr Mature, Habel has not been taken down, he is under indictment and innocent until proven guilty.sound familiar? As to the the alleged sexual assault, it was deemed unsustainable, NOT false, which is not surprising given the age of the alleged special needs student. Lastly, dont you think that calling me a mental moron is just a tad childish? I would expect no more from an impassioned hypocrite and enjoy solace knowing that I don't rise to your intellectual standards.

Interesting little running street battle here. Seems to me there are a lot of high and mighty know it alls here. From my perspective, it does seem that you're all intent on bringing Jerry down rather than accepting that there are always two sides to the story and that you should wait to hear more before you convict the girl in the media.
bobbotb August 08, 2013 at 11:47 AM
Jerry sounds lie he is a member of the Wall Board of Education. Always defending them. Habel was indicted for lots more than the one incident. And in my opinion the Board had to know what was going on. If they didn't then they were incompetent.
Jerry August 08, 2013 at 02:06 PM
And for YOU bobbotb, I can ASSURE you I am not a member of the Board of Education and I know NO ONE on the board. I live elsewhere. Defending them? NO, I am defending the right of due process, I am defending policies that are in place rather than supporting vigilante style comments in the face of low information. And who said I am complaining about Habel?
Jerry August 08, 2013 at 02:16 PM
BTW bobbtob, did you get out of your Monday morning quarterback chair to see what going rates are for tutors? And you "Proud," taken down" does not necessarily mean a conviction. One of "taken down's" definitions include :a. To capture physically; seize:" which Habel certainly was. And sustainable as in a grand jury charge or reasonable cause does not mean guilty as in Warnick. Look at how many people sat on death row falsely convicted. So, yes; mental moron does fit your description. Nothing childish about what is, is. What the real problem here in all of this diatribe is that all of you know it all, arm chair quarterbacks are being challenged rather than having the romp of the play room on this blog. So, you lash out, you rush to judgement and you decry tutoring rates without even having the energy to go research facts.
bobbotb August 08, 2013 at 02:32 PM
Spoke to someone who did tutoring at home. they were paid $25/hr. They have a Master's Degree with several years of experience. The $52 they paid the neophyte teacher did not include any overhead associated with providing that service as well. Someone administered the program and they were probably paid very well. My other question is as has been rumored that the victim was an athlete - why couldn't he have gone to the school for his tutoring? Do athletes get special favors?
proud August 08, 2013 at 02:57 PM
Taken Down? His lawyer handled the whole thing while Habel was in Florida and he posted bail when he appeared. I suspect most of that was because of the charges in the indictment that did not include Super Storm Sandy or possibly because he is an out of state resident (sometimes). The unsustainable reference was a result of the investigation of Dr. Brower and had nothing to do with indictment (other than allegedly covering it up) or Ms. Warnick, and I never said Warnick was guilty, but I think you just did. Keep on telling yourself that your insolent attacks and references are mature if it makes you feel good. I can't speak for whomever else you may be talking about, but your seemingly endless diatribe after diatribe that you consider to be challenge and a problem is really neither. FYI, i am not lashing out about anything, but regarding the outcall home instruction, I certainly know yet another scam when I see one. Now, I have a question for you @ Jerry: when you refer to innocent victims on murderes row, are you referring to the tax paying public that are not public takers (that incidentally move monies from one pocket to the other)?
Jerry August 08, 2013 at 03:33 PM
"Whatever" Proud. Makesure you get your meds.
proud August 08, 2013 at 03:35 PM
Very original @Jerry and just more testimony to your puerility. Now, I'm going to shut this down. No sense in going back and forth to win another argument.
Jerry August 08, 2013 at 05:59 PM
Whatever proud. You folks keep parsing things to the point of there being whatever you want to win your flaccid arguments. So what bobby boy. We know someone with a masters degree that get's $75 an hour. $52 is a fair going rate for this kind of stuff. Now, go check out other school systems. I suspect you folks are all just Tea Party wannabees who are anti schools because you "think" someone is screwing you over. Get over it. And yes, proud, I am done too. A few of you here are just too nuts, too hardarse and too close minded to deal with. Not to mention your desires to "rush to judgement" before all of the facts are in. TFNA

The lead story in the APP today features none other than James F. Habel. An interesting exposé on the pig of pigs. GO! Home Rule! Right Jerry?
John Wayne August 11, 2013 at 02:14 PM
Please, James Habel is so guilty it isn't funny. It is almost ridiculous anyone would defend him. He has been doing the wrong thing for years. None of them have been doing what is right for the kids.

Coming soon to a school district near you: The Illiterate Digest has always saluted Illiteracy and now has compiled a list of the most illiterate cities in the United States. We're doing much better than our European brethren, since 23 million American adults are functionally illiterate and 13% of all American 17-years-olds are functionally illiterate. To those people we dedicated the... Illiterate Digest Index 1. Miami FL: 63% 2. East LA CA: 57% 3. East St. Louis IL: 56% 4. Compton CA: 55% 5. Newark NJ: 52% 6. Brownsville TX: 50% 7. Union City NJ: 50% 8. San Fernando CA: 49% 9. Camden NJ: 49% 10. Detroit MI: 47% 11. Laredo TX: 47% 12. East Orange NJ: 46% 13. Gary IN: 46% 14. East Palo Alto CA: 45% 15. Orange NJ: 45% 16. Passaic City NJ: 45% 17. Paterson NJ: 45% 18. Augusta GA: 43% 19. Elizabeth NJ: 42% 20. Atlantic City NJ: 42% 21. Miami Beach FL: 41% 22. Hartford CT: 41% 23. East Chicago IN: 41% 24. South Miami Heights FL: 40% Source: The National Institute for Literacy The NALS found a total of 21-23 percent - or 40-44 million - of the 191 million American adults (defined as age 16 or older) at Level 1, the lowest literacy level. Although many Level 1 adults could perform many tasks involving simple texts and documents, all adults scoring at Level 1

Hey Governor you and your state education system should be Proud, with being included as having seven(7) NJ cities out of 24 nation wide, of educational illiterates. This should make for a good campaign platform for your 2016 presidential run...
bobbotb August 11, 2013 at 06:19 PM
It's Newark Mayor Booker who should be concerned. His city made fifth place in the literacy contest. This comes after being named the most unfriendly city in America (or was it the world) and being named the 7th most dangerous city in America. And he wants to represent us as Senator?
proud August 11, 2013 at 07:00 PM
Funny, most of Booker's campaign injections are not from the once great Garden State.
Joey Joe August 11, 2013 at 08:41 PM
Great 9 of the top 25 are Jersey Schools....and how much of our tax dollars go to schools???? Oh wait most of the money goes to the Super's, Asst Super's, Administrators, Asst Administrators, Directors, Asst Directors, Bullying Administrators, Asst Bullying Administrators -- geez.... When are we going to learn that it is so wasteful to duplicate the same jobs in every single school district in the State..... I say ONE per county is what we need.... IF THAT.
Spooner August 11, 2013 at 10:10 PM

Maybe Eva Longoria should walk through Newark..
Jerry August 27, 2013 at 07:22 PM
NOW, to get back to the topic of the blog, having gathered some more information from people closer to this; I fully believe Kaylee is guilty and the book should be thrown at her. And there possibly may have been a cover up and the book should be thrown at whomever might have done that. But that's the way things should work; more info first before "rushe's to judgement" just because she was 22. Now, she hasn't been proven guilty, that's why I said I believe. However all the pontificators here were rushing to hang her so early in the matter. TTFNA
proud August 27, 2013 at 08:28 PM
REALLY JERRY GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT?? Where did you study law? The truth is that you and I don't know what happened. And this comment of yours . "I fully believe Kaylee is guilty and the book should be thrown at her."And WERE YOU THERE? What evidence are you in possession of that says she crossed the line. That's the problem here, too many people THINK they know it all, but they don't. They are really low information people. Nuts. Too hardarse and too close minded to deal with. Not to mention your desires to "rush to judgement" before all of the facts are in. TFNA

Can we get an admin to remove GG's comment and block him???? This is no place for language like that.
