(WNBC-TV) A veteran New Jersey high school teacher from New York has been accused of contacting a student through Facebook and offering that student cash in exchange for sexual acts, prosecutors said.

Thomas Weir, a teacher at John F. Kennedy High School in Paterson, N.J., was arrested Saturday evening in the parking lot of a restaurant where he planned to meet the student, authorities said.

Weir, 50, was charged with attempted sexual assault, attempted endangering the welfare of a child and official misconduct, among other crimes. The Monticello, N.Y., resident has been employed by the Paterson Board of Education for more than two decades.
