The Detective Bureau, working jointly with Department of Children and Families (DCF), began an investigation in December after receiving a complaint regarding allegations of suspected child sexual abuse earlier in the month, Arciola said.

Corso, at liberty on a $25,000 bond, has his case continued until February 20.

Corso was an engineer for 20 years prior to teaching at Brien McMahon High School in Norwalk, according to the Norwalk Public School's website.

Corso is the second person with a relation to Westport to face sexual assault charges recently.

Wow, Chris. "Corso is the second Westport resident and teacher to face sexual assault charges recently." Jeffrey Schare is not a Westport resident. He lives in Fairfield, as it says in the story you linked to. Did you even bother to double check this story before posting it?
