Cops: Warde teacher exposed himself to student
FAIRFIELD — A Fairfield Warde High School teacher was arrested Monday, following allegations that he exposed himself.
Jeff Iwanicki, 44, was charged with two counts of risk of injury/impairing the morals of a minor, public indecency and breach of peace. Iwanicki, who turned himself in a police headquarters, allegedly exposed himself to a female student. The release from police provided no other details.
School officials contacted police about a month ago, when they learned of the allegations.
Iwanicki was released after posting a $50,000.00 bond.
An email to parents Monday from the school did not identify Iwanicki by name, but said he was placed on administrative leave when the investigation began a month ago and has not been at the school or in contact with students.
“This action enabled the school district to ensure the safety of its students while also reserving immediate judgment on the employee,” the email states. Because of the ongoing investigation, school officials said they couldn’t comment any further and recommended that parents having any concerns about their child contact the student’s counselor or housemaster.
