A Westchester man who worked as a school teacher has been charged with possession of child pornography and sexual assault following an extensive investigation in Fairfield County.

John Mueser, 69, of Tuckahoe, was arrested on Wednesday, April 1, by members of the Westchester County Safe Streets Task Force for the charges of possession of child pornography, risk of injury to a minor, sexual assault and voyeurism, said the Greenwich Police Department.

Greenwich Police began an extensive investigation in Oct. 2019, which involved digital evidence and thousands of digital photographs.

After establishing probable cause and obtaining an arrest warrant, Greenwich Police Special Victims detectives and members of the Safe Streets Task Force located and arrested Mueser at his residence in Tuckahoe. After waiving extradition, Mueser was transported to Greenwich Police headquarters on Tuesday, April 7.

Mueser was able to post a $250,000 bond and was released from custody. He is set to appear in court on June 4.

Mueser was a teacher at Riverdale Country School in the Bronx. The school said he was placed on leave when it learned of the investigation in October.

Detective Division Commander Capt. Robert Berry acknowledged the work and effort performed by Det. Michael Rooney of the Special Victims Section.

"Det. Rooney displayed a high level of service and compassion for the victim and the victim's family during this investigation, Berry said. "His dedication to the family sets an exemplary example for others to follow."

Police are asking anyone who believes they may be a victim or know someone that has been victimized by Mauser to contact the New York are FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI.
