What Is Happening With Thomas Ivan?

I am posting this update after many questions from friends and clients about the status of the Spotswood High School teacher charged with endangering the welfare of a child.  Mr. Ivan was charged after fellow students of the 17 year old reported he was sending inappropriate text messages.  Ivan was only charged with a fourth degree endangering the welfare of a child.

Right now the investigation is just getting started and court dates have not been set.  Many asked me what would he get?  It depends on many things.  If Ivan has a criminal record that will be considered.  The charge he was given is not, in my opinion, going to get him jail time.  Of course, he will not be teaching anytime soon and I cannot comment on if he will lose his pension.

We all will have to wait and see how it turns out.  Mr. Ivan will have to make sure he gets himself a good defense attorney.  The text messages will be the evidence against and they must be analyzed, along with the extent of the relationship of there was one. Call today for more information.
