2 New Jersey Educators Face Charges After School Trip to Germany

Two chaperones from New Jersey have pleaded not guilty to charges of having sex with female students during a class trip to Germany.

HACKENSACK, N.J.-- Two chaperones from New Jersey have pleaded not guilty to charges of having sex with female students during a class trip to Germany.

Thirty-one-year-old Artur Sopel was vice president of operations at Paramus Catholic High School and 27-year-old Michael Sumulikoski was a substitute teacher until they were suspended last month.

Sumulikoski is accused of have sex with one female student on the trip, which took place from Feb. 17 to Feb. 27.

Sopel is accused of engaging in sexual activities with two female students in Germany and having sex with another female student during the 2010 school year.

Sumuliksoki's lawyer told The Record newspaper he's investigating whether New Jersey can prosecute because the age of consent in Germany is 14.

Authorities have not released the girls' ages.
