    A teacher and former councilman in Camden County faces prison after admitting he engaged in inappropriate sexual communications with 17 male students.

    Prosecutors say Charles Reilly asked the boys to bring semen-stained tissues to school so he could make art projects with them.

    Reilly is scheduled to be sentenced Friday after he pleaded guilty to official misconduct, child endangerment and attempted child endangerment.
     
    The boys ranged in age from 12 to 16 years old and were students at Pine Hill Middle School. Reilly was an art teacher, boys' soccer coach and a Pine Hill councilman.

    Prosecutors will seek a 15-year prison sentence and he would have to serve at least five years before he'd become eligible for parole.
