Sex abuse scandal enveloping Connecticut magnet school

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A month before classes are set to resume, a criminal investigation has enveloped a Connecticut magnet school.

So far, three people face charges in connection with the sexual assault of students at the Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School in New London.

The case centers around 35-year-old Corriche Gaskin, a behavioral specialist who was arrested in May and is accused of assaulting two students in his office, filming sexual encounters with staff members and showing those videos to students.

Jevon Elmore, who served as a paraprofessional at the middle school, also has also been charged with sexual assault, which police say occurred at the city's high school.

Elmore's attorney said he would have to wait before commenting. Gaskin's attorney did not return messages.

A former middle school teacher, Melissa Rodriguez, has pleaded not guilty to failing to report an incident.
