Crime News That Matters

Alyssia Marie Reddy

28-year-old Alyssia Marie Reddy was a teacher at a boarding school in Mercer County in New Jersey. She’s accused of allegedly using Snapchat to communicate with a 16-year-old student before having sex (child rape) with him.

In December 2016, Reddy gave the student her cell phone number and then added him on Snapchat, according to the police records. The student said in February 2017 he received messages from Reddy saying, “I want your hands on me.”

While the age of consent in New Jersey is 16, the law states it is illegal for a person who has authority over the victim, such as a teacher, to have sex with them. So there you go.

Again to parents, check your kid’s Snapchat account and make sure your child can reasonably explain who is on their friends list. No teacher needs to be contacting a student in a way that circumvents the parents unless that child is in physical danger from one of his guardians.
