South Jersey councilman resigns amid child endangerment charges

    The Pine Hill, N.J., teacher and councilman accused of child endangerment has resigned from his council position and been suspended from his teaching post.

    Charles Reilly is accused of inappropriate contact with children after creating and distributing child pornography, report the Courier Post of Cherry Hill and the Associated Press. 

    Reilly resigned yesterday from his council position, and was suspended from Pine Hill Middle School last week where he worked as an art teacher. He faces 10 counts of endangering the welfare of a child and three counts of child pornography for his interaction with 12- to 15-year-old boys.
