King Jamol Perry II turned himself in to authorities in June 2012. According to detectives at the Passaic County Prosecutor's Office, Perry sexually assaulted a student at Passaic High School who he coached. The victim is now 26 years old. During his tenure at the school, Perry served as a special education teacher and the assistant high school track coach.
Perry pleaded guilty to the charges in 2016. In lieu of incarceration, he was ordered to participate in a pretrial intervention program. Perry was made to surrender his teaching certificate; he previously held a certificate in teaching special needs students. Despite the charges against him, Passaic High School continued to list Perry as a special education teacher well into November 2016, at least four months after he entered the pretrial intervention program, according to NJ.com.
