45-year-old John Allen Wright of Milton, NH arrested for child pornography.

DOVER, N.H. (AP) — A former school bus in southern New Hampshire and Maine has pleaded guilty to sexually exploiting children on his bus.

John Allen Wright of Milton was arrested last fall and charged with filming child pornography on the bus using hidden cameras in glasses and pens.

The 46-year-old Wright worked as a bus driver of special needs children.

Federal prosecutors say a search of Wright’s home and computer uncovered several videos showing Wright sexually assaulting children who were passengers aboard his bus and thousands of child sexual assault images downloaded from the Internet.

Wright pleaded guilty on Tuesday to six counts of sexual exploitation of children.

He faces a mandatory prison term of 15 years on each of five counts and a total maximum sentence of up to 160 years.
