A 30-year-old Brick man who was a teacher at Monmouth Regional High School was sentenced to five years in prison Friday for carrying on inappropriate relationships with two students, prosecutors said.
Nicholas DePue, of Hoover Drive in Brick, was sentenced by Monmouth County Superior Court Judge Joseph W. Oxley to a pair of concurrent 5-year terms in prison. DePue pleaded guilty in January to two counts of second degree endangering the welfare of a child. Upon his release from prison, DePue will be subject to the provisions of Megan’s Law as well as parole supervision for life as part of the sentence handed down by Oxley.
DePue was fired from his job as a teacher at Monmouth Regional High School following his arrest after it was discovered he was carrying on an inappropriate relationship with one of his students and a second relationship with another student was revealed.
