Ex-Plainfield teacher accused of sex assault: house arrest, bond raise | #teacher | #children | #kids

DANIELSON — A former Plainfield middle school teacher facing numerous criminal charges – including sexual assault – related to his conduct with teens is now on house arrest after a judge determined he violated the conditions of his release.

Craig McCue, 32, of North Stonington, spent Thursday night in jail after Danielson Superior Court Judge Kevin Shay increased the bonds in each of his four open case files by $60,000. On Friday, McCue appeared in court again where Shay laid out a host of new release restrictions.

McCue was ordered outfitted with a GPS monitoring device and placed on “full-lockdown,” only able to leave his residence for verified legal or medical appointments. McCue is barred from having any contact – direct or indirect – with persons younger than 18 and his use of Internet devices is at the sole discretion of probation officers.

“Under no circumstances can he use social media,” Shay said. “That’s based in no small part to the use of (the Tinder dating app) in which he created and deleted accounts to try and obfuscate probation.”

McCue, who was in the process of bonding out on Friday, is barred from using a motor vehicle, which Shay said the defendant had previously done in order to violate the conditions of his bond. McCue’s residence, vehicle and person are also subject to random searches by probation going forward, Shay said.
