Monique Ucelli Gets Probation For Sexually Assaulting Student

Monique Ucelli, 37-year-old teacher at the Middlesex County Vocational and Technical High School in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, has been placed on probation for five years for sexually assaulting a student.

Ucelli was also fined $1,300, ordered to register as a Megan’s Law offender and ordered not to have any contact with her victim.

In addition, Superior Court Judge Diane Pincus ordered Mrs Ucelli to surrender her two teaching certificates and said the defendant must continue to undergo mental health and substance abuse counseling.

The judge imposed, and suspended, a 180-day term at the Middlesex County Adult Correction Center in North Brunswick. She was sentenced to the term after she pleaded guilty on Feb. 18 to a count of criminal sexual contact, admitting that she improperly touched the boy for her own sexual gratification during an encounter on March 15, 2010, at her home. She was living in Sayreville at the time. Monique Ucelli was in her third year as a substitute teacher at the Perth Amboy school when she was charged. She also worked at the vo-tech high school in Woodbridge in 2009 and in the Sayreville schools in 2006.

The investigation began after school authorities heard the rumours about the alleged sexual episodes between student and teacher, and contacted police. The charges were filed after an investigation by Detective Panagiotis Boulieris of the Perth Amboy Police Department and Investigator Andreea Capraru of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office determined that Ucelli, a substitute science teacher at the Middlesex County Vocational and Technical High School in Perth Amboy, took the student to a motel in Sayreville sometime in March 2010 and had sexual relations with him, authorities said.
