Prep school Dean arrested for sexual assault
MIDDLETOWN, N.J. (WABC) -- A sex scandal has rocked a New Jersey prep school.
The former dean of students at Mater Dei High School was arrested and accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl.
Eyewitness News went to 7 Acker Drive in Middletown, 28-year-old William Miltner's listed address.
The woman who came to the door did not want to talk to Eyewitness News, though a neighbor says Miltner's arrest is the talk of the neighborhood.
At just 28-years-old, William Miltner was a Dean, teacher, and the soccer coach at Mater Dei Catholic High School.
He was arrested Tuesday and charged with 2nd Degree Aggravated Sexual Assault, and 4th Degree Aggravated Sexual Criminal Conduct, the Monmouth County prosecutor says with a 16-year-old girl at Mater Dei.
"This is just shocking, I can't believe it," said Kerri Inzerillo, a Middletown resident.
Kerri Inzerillo recently earned a degree in education, and is looking to become a teacher.
She had friends who graduated from Mater Dei.
Middletown Police began investigating after the school contacted them.
The Diocese of Trenton told Eyewitness News, in a statement that: "William Miltner was the subject of an anonymous e-mail that was sent to the leadership of Mater Dei Prep, New Monmouth. Due to the nature of the e-mail, the information was forwarded."
Miltner had his first court appearance Wednesday morning, and he's being held on $125,000 bail.
He was told if he makes bail, he is to have no contact with his accuser.
The police investigation is ongoing.
