Muslim convert, Linda Hardan, a substitute teacher, was ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation following new charges that she sexually abused a 14-year-old boy. Those allegations follow claims she sexually assaulted a 16-year-old and sent sexually explicit photos to another 16-year-old.
The former Passaic County science teacher pleaded not guilty to the new charges of aggravated assault, sexual assault and child endangerment. She had been out on $200,000 bail after her Nov. 21 arrest, but was re-arrested on Friday. She is now being held on $300,000 bond, Passaic County Jail records show.
