Newington Connecticut Special Education Tutor Charged with Sexual Assault

A woman who worked as a special education tutor in the Newington school system has been charged with eight counts of second-degree sexual assault after engaging in a sexual relationship with a 20-year-old student. Newington school officials notified police of the allegations on June 13 and on Monday police announced they'd arrested Amy Belliveau, 43, of New Britain. Police said she turned herself in Thursday after learning a warrant had been issued for her arrest. It is against state law for a school employee to have sexual contact with a student, regardless of age of the student.

New Haven Connecticut Teacher Charged with Sexually Assaulting Students at MicroSociety Magnet School

A special education teacher in the New Haven, Connecticut public schools has been charged with sexually assaulting three underage students, according to police. Robert Schmitt, of Hamden, turned himself in to police on Wednesday, police spokesman David Hartman said in a press release Thursday afternoon. Schmitt, 48, is accused of assaulting three students during the 2011-2012 school year at the MicroSociety Magnet School. Each of the alleged assaults took place when the child was under the age of 13, Hartman said. The police investigation of Schmitt began in April, when a school social worker heard an allegation from a student -- a 12-year-old girl -- and reported it, Hartman said. A second victim, a 14-year-old girl, came forward in May, and two days later detectives spoke with the third victim, a 12-year-old boy.

Danbury Hospital Employee Charged with Sexually Assaulting Patient

A Danbury Hospital employee has been charged with sexually assaulting a patient in June, police said Thursday. Michael Wilmot, 47, was arrested after a lengthy investigation and charged with two counts of first-degree sexual assault, according to a police news release. Wilmot was in custody on $50,000 bail Thursday morning. The alleged assaults happened on June 12, 2013, police said. Wilmot was a patient care technician at the hospital, they said, and the patient was under his care. In a written statement, a hospital spokeswoman said Thursday that Wilmot has been suspended from the hospital. "Since this involves an active legal matter, we cannot comment in detail. We can say that the involved employee has been suspended," said Andrea Rynn. "We want to reassure the public that the well-being and security of our patients is our top priority, and that we are fully committed to providing a safe environment for their care," she said. As reported by Hartford Courant.
