The Trentonian reported Kalee Warnick, 24, has denied any inappropriate involvement with the unidentified student.
Warnick was indicted in 2014 for inappropriate sexual encounters, which allegedly took place between January and July of 2013. Warnick was 22 at the time and in her first year of teaching at Wall High School, where she used to be a student.
The Department of Education reported Warnick is fighting the suspension of her teaching license ahead of the trial, on claims that "this entire case is predicated on unsubstantiated testimony by a 14-year-old boy who has a history of psychological and psychiatric problems and he was threatening to kill himself."
Warnick is facing multiple charges, including assault and battery, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty and child sexual abuse.
"The victim has suffered an extreme emotional injury," said attorney James Maggs, who is representing the family.
Monmouth County has not yet set a date for the trial, but they are expected to hold a status conference on May 15, according to the Trentonian.
If the courts find her guilty, Warnick would have to register as a sex offender with Megan's Law and could face a sentence of 20 years.
