PITMAN -

A former teacher from Vineland has pleaded guilty to child pornography charges that include videotaping boys in a restroom.

A state grand jury indicted Thomas Guzzi Jr., 38, of Pitman, on 10 counts, including second-degree manufacturing, among other charges.

Guzzi Jr. was also charged with possession of more than 300 files of child pornography.

According to the Attorney General's Office, Guzzi Jr. took pictures and videos of teenage boys urinating in restrooms at the summer theater camp in Pitman back in 2015.

Guzzi was fired from the Vineland School District and had his teaching license revoked.

He was a former fifth-grade teacher and drama club adviser at the John H. Winslow Elementary School.

He’s being held in jail pending a detention hearing and will be arraigned in Gloucester County Superior Court at a later date.
