BETHEL, Conn. — An ex-teacher from Berry Elementary School in Bethel who entered no contest pleas in three counts of sexual abuse asked a Danbury judge to be lenient Wednesday at his hearing for sentencing, according to The News-Times.
Brian Stroh pleaded no contest in October to three counts of risk of injury to a minor and one count of promoting a minor in an obscene performance and faces up to two years in prison, according to The News-Times. He was arrested in March on charges of sexually assaulting three boys — ages 6, 9, and 11 — in New Fairfield, according to The News-Times..
Stroh reportedly told the judge Wednesday jail is not safe and "not the appropriate penalty" in his case, said The News-Times.
