A Hammonton man employed as the high school marching band director surrendered himself to law enforcement and was arraigned for the sexual assault of a 16 year-old student. Jason Koenig faces charges including official misconduct, sexual assault, criminal sexual contact, and endangering the welfare of a child. The State alleges that, while employed by Hammonton High School as an Aide and Marching Band Director, Koenig committed these crimes against a 16 year-old Hammonton High School student in November and December of 2013, while he had supervisory or disciplinary power over the victim by virtue of his occupational status.
