No charges filed against two school employees


Two Long Branch School District maintenance employees have not been charged by the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office for an incident where they allegedly involved in an incident with four Gregory School students.

Monmouth County First Assistant Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni said the matter remains under investigation and, as of 2:30 p.m. on Monday, no charges had been filed.

"The investigation will determine whether or not charges will be filed against anyone or not," Gramiccioni said on Monday.

The school has had no official comment on what took place in the Gregory School bathroom on March 1. A letter from a parent said the .

This allegation has not been confirmed by the school, the police or the prosecutor's office.

However, last week, Long Branch School District Superintendent Michael Salvatore did say there have been no allegations of sexual abuse.

In a statement released on March 2, Salvatore stated that the "acts are claimed to be without malice and in jest."

The two employees were suspended with pay after the incident was reported.

Salvatore has said if any incident is determined to be a criminal act, it would be his recommendation to terminate the employee charged.

He said the Long Branch Board of Education would have to take action if the employees were terminated.
