Sex Charges Filed Against Pine Hill Teacher

Authorities in Camden County arrested a 28-year-old high school music teacher Friday and charged him with engaging in “sexual acts” with a female student.

Daniel Poussart, of Pine Hill, is is being held at the Camden County Jail on $450,000 bail. He is charged with Official Misconduct, Sexual Assault, Criminal Sexual Contact and Endangering the Welfare of a Child.

A statement issued by Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk and Pine Hill Police Chief Chris Winters, alleges that Poussart “engaged in sexual acts with a female student at Overbrook High School from November to December 2013 while in a supervisory relationship to the victim.”

According to the prosecutor’s office, Poussart has been suspended with pay and, if indicted on the charges, will remain suspended without pay.

In a statement posted on the homepage of the Pine Hills School District, schools superintendent Kenneth Koczur said, “we will continue to work closely with the Pine Hill Police Department and the Camden County Prosecutor’s office as the investigation continues.” He also said a report has been filed with the New Jersey Child Protection and Permanency Agency.

Addressing parents, Koczur’s statement added: “Our counselors are prepared to provide support for our students upon their return to school on Monday.’

Authorities urged anyone who knows of other “inappropriate activities” to contact Detective Kristen Smith (856) 225-8673 of the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office or Pine Hill Police Detective Matthew Pierson at
