NEW BRUNSWICK, New Jersey — A former New Jersey high school teacher who sexually assaulted two 16-year-old male students is now headed to prison.

Middlesex County prosecutors say 25-year-old Jaclyn Melillo of Sayreville received a four-year state prison term when she was sentenced Monday. She also has forfeited her teaching certificate, will have to register as a sex offender and will be on lifetime parole supervision once she's freed from prison.

Melillo had pleaded guilty in March to two counts of sex assault. Prosecutors say the assaults occurred between May and August 2013 at various locations in Sayreville.

She was an English teacher at Sayreville War Memorial High School for about two years. She was arrested last October after school authorities heard about the sex assaults and contacted police.
