TOMS RIVER – A retired township teacher and another man were charged with sexually abusing a teenager for several years, authorities said Thursday.

Raymond Waters, 63, and Allen Harbatuk, 68, both of the same Hillsborough address, were charged Wednesday with sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child, according to the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office.

Adam Levine used both his steals tonight, beating out Gwen Stefani both times, while Blake Shelton buzzed in for one of Gwen’s rejects. Only Gwen has a steal left coming into the final round of battles Tuesday night.
