Stafford Elementary School teacher charged with sexual assault


STAFFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A Stafford Elementary School teacher is facing charges after being investigated for inappropriate behavior with male and female students, the superintendent says.

Superintendent Patricia Collin says school administrators received reports of Todd Kelliher’s inappropriate behavior on Jan. 23, notified police, and made a report to DCF. She says Kelliher was immediately placed on administrative leave, and steps were taken to ensure he would not go on school property, contact students, staff, or faculty, or take any action on behalf of the Stafford School District.

Kelliher is charged with fourth-degree sexual assault, risk of injury to a minor, and disorderly conduct. He was arraigned in Rockville Superior Court Monday and released on $10,000 bond. He’s due back in court April 8.
