FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, NJ (CBS) -- A 26-year-old teacher at Notre Dame High School was arrested Monday at his home in Franklin Township.

Edmund Harman was charged with three counts of endangering the welfare of a child and one count of criminal sexual contact. His bail was set at $150,000.

In February, Harman allegedly met a student in his classroom before school started for extra credit. According to police, the victim said Harman fondled her breasts, kissed the back of her neck and massaged her back and legs. Harman is also accused of directing the student to send him naked pictures.

The Mercer County Prosecutor's Special Victims Unit and the Lawrence Township Police Department are still investigating the case and anyone with information is asked to call 609-989-6568.
