Police: Sayreville teacher facing sexual assault, child porn charges

The Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office says a teacher at Sayreville Middle School has been arrested on multiple charges involving the sexual assault of a minor.
Officials say John Denuto was the head wrestling coach at Union County College as well. He was also previously a wrestling coach at high schools across New Jersey.
The Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office says the 43-year-old from Spotswood was arrested on Saturday.
He was charged with one count of sexual assault in the second degree, one count of endangering the welfare of a child in the third degree, one count of filming child pornography in the second degree and one count of possession of child pornography in the third degree.
In a statement, Sayreville's superintendent said in part, "...we are shocked and deeply troubled by what has occurred, and are currently cooperating fully with law enforcement." He added "as required by state law, Mr. Denuto will be suspended with pay effective immediately pending the outcome of this criminal investigation."
According to an announcement from the Union County College, the school launched the men's wrestling program this academic year.
In a statement, a spokesperson for the college said, "The safety and wellbeing of our students is our top priority. Upon learning of the criminal charges, John Denuto was terminated as head wresting coach. The college is cooperating with law enforcement. We have no further comment at this time."
