HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Two Connecticut men accused in a case alleging sexual abuse of their adopted children have pleaded no contest to lesser felony charges and will avoid jail time in an agreement with prosecutors.
The Hartford Courant reports George Harasz and Douglas Wirth of Glastonbury entered the pleas Friday to charges of risk of injury to a minor in Hartford Superior Court. They will receive suspended sentences.
Warrants for the men's 2011 arrests described abuse of two boys, ages 5 and 15. Other children in the household told police they didn't experience inappropriate sexual contact.
Harasz had been charged with two counts of first-degree sexual assault accusing him of sexually abusing both boys. Wirth had been charged with one count of third-degree sexual assault of the older boy and risk of injury to a minor.
