Substitute teacher charged with sexual contact with student he tutored in home FREE TO GO under NJ Bail Reform

Nestor Saavedra, 49

Roselle Park, NJ – A substitute teacher who has worked in Elizabeth public schools has been charged with criminal sexual contact with a student he was tutoring at his home.

Nestor Saavedra, 49, was tutoring the student at his hime in Roselle Park when it is alleged that Saavedra inappropriately touched a student.

Now facing 3-5 years in prison for the offense, Saavedra was arrested and quickly released and FREE TO GO after the Arnold Foundation’s “Pretrial Risk Assessment” tool determined he was not a danger to the community or a flight risk and therefore should not be subject to any accountable release – just a “promise” to appear.
