Ex-Teacher Arrested + Lamont Terminates More Employees | #teacher | #children | #kids


Good Wednesday morning Connecticut,

Another great weather day with sunshine and warm temperatures. We can expect the same forecast on Thursday and Friday too!

Saturday looks like it will include some rain showers but it won’t be raining all day. Back to more sunshine on Sunday but temperatures start to feel more fall-like with temps in the mid 60s.


Former teacher arrested

Craig McCue, 31, of North Stonington, is charged with two counts of fourth-degree sexual assault and seven counts of risk of injury to a minor, according to reports. He is being held in lieu of a $200,000 bond.

McCue is a former Plainfield eighth grade teacher and coach and police said he is accused of sending text messages, which included “inappropriate photographs and the admission of supplying (a) child with marijuana,” Fox 61 reports.

The investigation began in May 2021 when a parent found “inappropriate text messages” on their child’s phone, NBC CT reports. School officials said when they learned of the police investigation back in the spring, McCue was immediately placed on leave, and he later resigned. The investigation is ongoing. Police said there were “several” victims who were all under the age of 16. (Read more at Fox 61). (Read more at NBC CT).

Beginning on Friday, state workers who are non-compliant, which means they refuse to get the COVID-19 vaccine or agree to weekly testing will be suspended without pay for 45 days, News 8 reports.
