College alumna accused of sending student racy pictures

VINELAND, N.J. (AP) – A 2008 College graduate who works as a teacher’s aid at a southern New Jersey middle school faces charges for allegedly sending nude photos to a 14-year-old student.

Cumberland County authorities say 23-year-old Lauren Breslin, a women and gender studies major, sent the racy, suggestive pictures to the male student’s cell phone.

Police told the Gloucester County Times that the boy said Breslin had kissed him multiple times and had called him after school hours.

Breslin, of Vineland, was taken into custody Friday and charged with endangering the welfare of a child, and was being held on $25,000 bail.

She has been suspended from her job at Veterans Memorial Middle School without pay.

Jim Swift, an attorney representing Breslin, told the newspaper his client has no past criminal record.
