HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) – - A former Oxford school administrator pleaded guilty Monday in Butler County Common Pleas Court to numerous charges relating to sexually oriented material involving minors.

Alfred Allen, 60, will be sentenced Jan. 28.

Allen was the director of the McGuffey Montessori School. He was suspected of misusing the school's debit/credit card back in May. An investigation into the allegation resulted in theft charges.

In the course of the theft investigation, police say they found evidence of child pornography. Allen was taken into custody in September for 20 felony counts related to child pornography.

Allen was terminated by the school in May. The school said that Allen was terminated because of his failure to perform the duties of head of school. The school also said it was not aware of any criminal activity at the time.

Allen had been an employee at the school for more than three years. The school said that a background check revealed no cause for concern when hiring Allen.
