A Camden Catholic High School teacher had sex with a student about 60 times over an 18-month period, according to a probable cause statement for the woman’s arrest.

Bridget Sipera, 36, of Cherry Hill, allegedly initiated a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old boy in January 2019, according to the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office.

Sipera, who was also the coach of the girls’ lacrosse team at Camden Catholic, admitted to offenses “which took place in multiple towns,” the prosecutor’s statement alleged.

It noted she could face additional charges.

Sipera’s employment as a teacher and coach at Camden Catholic “was terminated immediately,” the Cherry Hill school said in a statement Thursday.
