David Clune, a Timber Creek Regional High School math teacher charged with harassing former students with inappropriate text messages, will have a hearing on Aug. 13 at 1 p.m. at the Gloucester Township Municipal Court.

Clune also sent 39 Facebook messages to an 18-year-old July 4-6, also attempting to meet with her, Gloucester Township Police report.

Neither student met with Clune, police report.

Clune has taught at Timber Creek for eight years, and taught five classes, according to state records. His last listed salary is $53,358. He was Timber Creek's head baseball coach in 2013

This is just the one who got caught. A lot of students have their teachers cell phone and it's creepy.

I don't get it. These were not current students, these kids had graduated and were no longer his students. Sure, it's creepy, but what makes it illegal?
