Newport school guidance counselor on leave pending indecent exposure, lewdness charges

NEWPORT — A high school guidance counselor charged with indecent exposure and lewdness has been placed on administrative leave, officials said.

Thomas Mauzy, of Sunapee, turned himself in on an arrest warrant. 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 through his apartment window to a woman as she walked to her car.

The woman told police it happened several times over a two-week period.

Tom Mauzy, a Newport school guidance counselor, faces 7 charges of indecent exposure and lewdness, police said.

Police say no minors or students were involved or at risk.

Mauzy has hired an attorney.

"We look forward to resolving this matter in court," said attorney Richard Guerriero.

Mauzy was released on $10,000 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on March 1 in Newport District Court.

School officials released the following statement:

"Mr. Tom Mauzy, a Newport High School guidance counselor, is on administrative leave. The pending allegations pertain to off campus conduct. This is a personnel matter and the District will make no further comment," said SAU 43 Superintendent Cindy Gallagher. "The District staff are working collaboratively to ensure that all students’ needs are met."
