A former substitute teacher in New Jersey performed sexual acts and shared explicit photos with several of her students.
In court, she blamed her strict Muslim upbringing.
At least one of her 14-year-old students has claimed she performed sexual acts on them, the Daily Caller reports. Two 16-year-old students have also claimed she touched them inappropriately and sent nude photos of herself to them.
Linda Hardan was 20 at the time of the incidents. When she appeared in court, reports say she cried so much the proceedings were put on hold until she could regain composure. It was then her defense attorney, Alissa Hascup, told the judge that her client’s actions reflected her strict Muslim upbringing.
On the record, Hascup said, “She had classmates and friends, but somehow, perhaps because of limitations on her dating life, she didn’t find the proper outlet among males of her own age. She did not learn how to interact with guys her age.”
