Jose Bruzual Updates

jose bruzual blackSt. Johnsbury - Members of the St. Johnsbury Academy were shocked yesterday after Jose Bruzual, a teacher at the school, was arrested and charged with five counts of possessing child pornography.


After his arraignment at the Caledonia Superior Court, Judge Robert Bent set bail at $35,000. Police say Bruzual used a peer-to-peer file sharing program to possess and/or offer to distribute the files of under age children.

Court documents say Bruzual lived on campus as a proctor to a dormitory with his wife, Lisa, and their three children. Reports also indicated Bruzual's wife also works at the academy.

According to court documents Bruzual is not a U.S. citizen and his passport has been revoked. This could potentially lead to deportation from the United States back to Venezuela for Bruzual.
