Union County Sheriff’s Officers Return Plainfield High School Teacher to New Jersey to Face Sexual Assault Charges

Union County Sheriff’s Officers Kenneth Randazza and Joann Huss escort Jennalin M. Garcia-Calle at Newark Liberty Airport after her extradition from Florida.

Garcia-Calle, a Plainfield High School teacher, is charged with second-degree sexual assault and fourth-degree child abuse stemming from an alleged sexual relationship with a 16-year-old male student. She fled to Florida upon learning she was under investigation.

The 28-year-old teacher was arrested in Davie, Florida by members of the U.S. Marshals Service and was held in the Broward County Jail on $200,000 bail.

Union County Sheriff’s officers traveled to Florida and returned Garcia-Calle to New Jersey before transporting her to the Plainfield Police.
