Fairfield Ludlowe High School Teacher Glenn Mishuck plead guilty to four of the 17 charges of sexual assault pending against him. What is curious, however, is the timing of his plea which came less than 24 hours after the prosecutor advised the court that she had evidence that Mishuck had engaged in conduct which was sexual nature with a student from Stamford where he had taught more than 10 years earlier. The principal from Stamford where Mishuck worked before coming to Fairfield had written a glowing letter of recommendation for Mishuck. This letter was written despite the fact that Mishuck had been suspended without pay 7 months earlier. The reasons for the suspension are unclear.
A former fencing coach at Fairfield's high schools has been sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting a female student at Fairfield Ludlowe High School last year. The parents of the victim broke into tears last Friday as they described to Judge Robert Devlin at Bridgeport Superior Court how their now-18-year-old daughter has changed as a result of actions by John Tejada. "I sent him a confident, happy child and he sent us back a broken child, and we may never put the pieces back together," said the girl's father, wiping away tears.
Police have charged an English teacher at Fairfield Ludlowe High School with sexual assault after they say he engaged in a long-running relationship with a student. Glenn Mishuck, 49, of Ellsworth Street in Bridgeport, is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at Superior Court in Bridgeport. He was charged with 17 counts of second-degree sexual assault. Mischuck is no longer a teacher at the school. School officials said he resigned his position Oct. 7. He was placed on paid administrative leave Sept. 18, when school officials learned of the allegations against him, a school spokeswoman said. Mishuck, who was known to students as "Mish," engaged in a sexual relationship with a student younger than 18 on at least 17 occasions, police said. Text messages between the student and Mishuck corroborated the incidents, police said. David Owens, Hartford Courant
