MANCHESTER, NH – A three-day police investigation culminated with the arrest of a Parkside Middle School teacher involving alleged inappropriate email activity with a student.
The school resource officer was alerted by school administrators on December 4 regarding possible inappropriate activity between Jennifer Glidden, 50, of Exeter, a sixth-grade teacher at Parkside and a student under the age of 16.
The two allegedly exchanged inappropriate emails which were sexual in nature over a one-month period of time.
Detectives from the Manchester Police Juvenile Unit began the investigation on Tuesday and determined the teacher and the Manchester student had exchanged more than 100 inappropriate emails between November 2 and December 4. Investigators worked collaboratively with school administrators during the three-day investigation.
Manchester juvenile detectives coordinated the arrest with members of the Exeter Police Department after an arrest warrant was issued around 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 7. Members of the Exeter Police Department arrested Glidden at her home around 3:30 p.m.
Juvenile detectives transported Glidden from the Exeter Police Department to the Manchester Police Department. Glidden is charged with “certain use of computer services prohibited” and was released on $2,500 personal recognizance bail. She is scheduled to appear in Hillsborough County Superior Court-North on December 20, 2018 at 1 p.m.
