On September 23, 2021, Gayle Hadley, 53, of Toms River is charged with one count of fourth-degree uttering and one count of fourth degree falsifying medical records for allegedly submitting a forged document to the Woodbridge Public School District.

Middlesex County Prosecutor Ciccone said the arrest and charges stems from concerns raised by the District’s administration.

An investigation by a Detective with Woodbridge Police then ensued and he learned that, on September 8, 2021, Hadley, submitted a forged doctor’s letter to the District and that she claimed a fictitious medical exemption from their mask policy.

The investigation is active.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Kondracki at (732)-643-7700.
