    A former middle school teacher and boy's soccer coach in southern New Jersey has been indicted on charges he engaged in inappropriate conduct with 17 male students.

    A 92-count indictment made public Wednesday accuses former Pine Hill Middle School teacher Charles Reilly of having sexual contact with one student and engaging in inappropriate sexual communications with other students from 2006 to 2011.

    Authorities said at the time of his arrest that he spoke with boys about masturbation.

    Camden County prosecutors say the 44-year-old Reilly has been suspended with pay since his arrest in March 2011 and is free on bond.

    He was also a member of the borough council in Pine Hill, but he resigned soon after his arrest.

    Prosecutors say the victims ranged in age from 12 to 16-years-old.

    Charges include one count of second-degree sexual assault, 18 counts of second-degree child endangerment and 18 counts of second-degree official misconduct.

    A person at the law office that had represented Reilly did not immediately know if the office still represents him.
