A Wood-Ridge High School math teacher who had sex with a student from when she was 13 until she was 16 had his teaching license revoked by the The New Jersey State Board of Examiners.

Gary Minervini of East Rutherford held a teacher of mathematics certificate of eligibility with advance standing and teacher of mathematics certificate prior to the revocation at the board's May 24 meeting.

He had been working at Wood-Ridge High School when he was arrested in 2016 and accused of having an inappropriate relationship with the teen while she was his student, according to a press release.

In February, Minervini pled guilty to lesser charges following sexual assault allegations from nearly a decade ago.

Minervini was fined, sentenced to three years probation and is disqualified from public school employment.
