According to police, today, members of the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit arrested Mr. Francisco Realpe, 43, of Hoboken, on a charge that he sexually assaulted a 17-year- old female student while a teacher in Union City.

Police say the new charge stems from an incident that occurred in 2004 while Realpe was a teacher at Union Hill High School.

Realpe has been charged with Sexual Assault in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:14-2c(3), a second-degree crime.

Police say Realpe was arrested at the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office without incident, after surrendering with his attorney.

Realpe appeared in Criminal Justice Reform Court on Saturday, February 22, 2020, where he was placed on supervised release.

Realpe was previously arrested on February 3, 2020, on charges involving the sexual assault of a 17-year-old female student at Dickinson High School in Jersey City in November 2019.

Prosecutor Suarez credited the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit for the investigation.

The above charges are merely accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty. R.P.C.3.6(b)(6).
