Teacher charged with touching, kissing 16-year-old student

New Haven

A Connecticut high school teacher charged with sexually assaulting a student touched the 16-year-old girl’s buttocks and kissed her on the mouth, according to the student’s account.

The Republican American reports (https://bit.ly/2PU8mZI) that details of a city police investigation of 49-year-old Jeffrey Lucian were revealed Wednesday in a newly unsealed arrest warrant.

Lucian, of Plymouth, is a computer teacher at Kennedy High School in Waterbury. He was charged last month with fourth-degree sexual assault.

Both allegations occurred at the school.

The student told police she never told anyone about the kiss or the contact “because I didn’t want to cause trouble with his family and kids.”

Lucian’s attorney, Ioannis Kaloidis, has said his client denies any wrongdoing. Lucian has been placed on paid administrative leave and is free on $10,000 bond.
