ELIZABETH — A teacher at Roselle Catholic High School accused of having a sexual relationship with a student was ordered on Friday to be released from jail on two conditions.

Judge Brenda Coppola Cuba agreed to release Theresa Hrindo, 25, of Linden, under the conditions that she have no contact with the student and that she cannot teach or supervise children.

“This whole process for my client, her family and everyone involved is, quite frankly, traumatic,” Michael G. Brucki, Hrindo’s lawyer, told the judge at Hrindo’s first appearance in state Superior Court in Union County.

Hrindo was arrested Thursday afternoon and charged with two counts of sexual assault, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, and one count of hindering apprehension.
