CT school staffer accused of sexually assaulting student in school arrested, fired

A former New London, CT, school employee who police say sexually assaulted a middle school student in his office and had consensual sex with two adult staff members -- sometimes in school -- has been fired. Corriche Gaskin, 35, of Groton recorded the sexual acts and showed the cellphone videos to another middle school student. He was fired May 9, said Jason Catala, a member of the board of education.

Gaskin, whose job was to prevent bullying and help students at Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School get along, was arrested last week for the second time in a month. He was charged April 5 with risk of injury to a minor and May 7 with second-degree sexual assault, third-degree possession of child pornography, voyeurism with malice, dissemination of voyeuristic material and four counts of risk of injury to a minor.

Catala said he learned that three female staff members, including the school’s director, Alison Burdick, were placed on leave, as was the male administrator who supervised Gaskin, Lawrence Washington.

Gaskin’s job as a behavior, or “climate,” specialist was to prevent bullying and other problems between students in New London schools and oversee investigations into incidents of bullying.
