Drew Dufault
Accused Columbia High School teacher Nicole Dufault is not the only one in the family facing criminal charges. Her former husband, Drew Dufault, admitted last week to burglarizing a West Orange home.

Mr. Dufault, 34, pleaded guilty last Friday to the burglary charge related to a June 13, 2014 incident, according to

The story adds:

Drew Dufault is expected to receive a term of probation when he is sentenced on Sept. 18 before Superior Court Judge Alfonse Cifelli.

At the time of the burglary, Dufault entered the house through a window and stole jewelry and about $800 in cash, according to Katherine Carter, spokeswoman for the Essex County Prosecutor's Office. No one was home at the time of the break-in, Carter said.

Ms. Dufault is still awaiting trial on 40 counts of alleged sexual assault against at least six under-aged CHS students dating back to 2013 and remains free on $500,000 bail. She was last in court on Aug 3 when attorneys argued over some disputed evidence.
