Former Milford Superintendent Avoids Jail Time in Plea Deal
MILFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The former Milford school superintendent accused of inappropriate touching of two female principals has agreed to a deal in which he avoids jail time with a no contest plea to a breach of peace charge.
Harvey Polansky’s deal comes about a year after the principals filed criminal sexual assault complaints against him.
Under terms of the deal announced Thursday, prosecutors dropped two fourth-degree sexual assault charges and one second-degree breach of peace charge.
He received a 30-day suspended sentence and six months of probation.
The 57-year-old Polansky of Trumbull was also ordered to have no contact with either woman. His lawyer tells The New Haven Register he maintains his innocence.
The judge said the principals approved of the settlement.
