Prosecutors say the man assaulted a student in 2006

A New Jersey high school teacher and track coach accused of sexually assaulting a student in 2006 turned himself in to authorities Thursday, prosecutors said.
King Jamol Perry II, 38, a special education teacher at Passaic High School, surrendered to detectives at the Passaic County Prosecutor's Office in Totowa, N.J., according to authorities. 

Prosecutors say Perry, who was also an assistant coach of the high school's track team, assaulted a female student at the high school in 2006.

The alleged victim, now 22, was coached by Perry, prosecutors said.

Perry is charged with one count of sexual assault, one count of endangering the welfare of a child, and one count of official misconduct.

A call for comment to Perry's attorney was not immediately returned.
