NORWALK, Conn. (AP) _ A former Connecticut gymnastics instructor who was convicted of fondling an 8-year-old student has been charged with violating his probation by visiting a gymnastics school in Maine.

Sixty-three-year-old Vincent Pozzuoli of Milford was arraigned Monday in Norwalk Superior Court and ordered detained on $50,000 bail. He was sentenced to five years of probation last year after pleading guilty to fourth-degree sexual assault for groping an 8-year-old boy at the Norwalk YMCA.

Police say Pozzuoli violated his probation recently when he lied about a trip to Topsham, Maine, where he stayed with a friend whose home is attached to a gymnastics school. Probation officials said the Maine school was the same one where Pozzuoli assaulted an 11-year-old boy in 1994.

It’s not clear if Pozzuoli has a lawyer.
