A substitute teacher in Camden County has been charged for allegedly sexually assaulting a teenager over several years.

12 Counts

Authorities say 27-year-old Rebecca Coddington of Browns Mills, Burlington County, has been charged with the following:

  • 2 counts of first-degree aggravated sexual assault
  • 6 counts of second-degree sexual assault
  • 2 counts of third-degree aggravated criminal sexual contact
  • 2 counts of third-degree endangering the welfare of a child

During an investigation, detectives from the Camden County Prosecutor's Office Special Victims Unit and the Gloucester Township Police Department learned that a 14-year-old female victim was allegedly sexually assaulted multiple times by Coddington at a home in Gloucester Township between September 2019 and December 2023.

Coddington is a substitute teacher in the Runnemede Public School District but officials were quick to point out that no allegations have been brought forward involving students.
