A male teacher at a Hudson County high school stands accused of having a sexual relationship with a juvenile. Gustavo Bordenabe of Point Pleasant was arrested Friday and charged with sexual assault, child endangerment and criminal sexual contact.

Authorities say the 44-year-old assaulted the victim several times at a home in Point Pleasant and that the assaults had occurred for more than a year.

But they won't discuss how Bordenabe knew the youth, who is now 16, saying they want to protect the victim's identity.

Bordenabe is a math teacher and girl's soccer coach at Hudson County Prep, a school in Jersey City that operates as part of the county's Schools of Technology district.

Officials there were notified of Bordenabe's arrest, but did not comment on it.
