Guidance counselor charged with indecent exposure, placed on leave by Newport schools
NEWPORT — A high school guidance counselor charged with indecent exposure on Friday has been placed on administrative leave according to SAU 43 Superintendent Cindy Gallagher.
Thomas Mauzy, of Maple Avenue in Sunapee, turned himself in to Sunapee police on an arrest warrant on Friday morning. He was charged with seven counts of indecent exposure and lewdness. Police say the arrest stems from a month-long investigation after Mauzy allegedly exposed himself on several occasions to someone who reported it to police.
Police say they do not have any evidence that minors were involved or at risk.
Mauzy was released on $10,000 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on March 1 in Newport District Court.
According to the Union Leader, school officials announced Saturday that Mauzy was being placed on administrative leave while they investigate unspecified allegations pertaining to "off-campus conduct."
