NORWALK, Conn. (AP) - Norwalk officials have fired a police officer accused of telling another officer he was being investigated for the alleged sexual assault of a 15-year-old boy.
The police trial board fired Sgt. Stephen Couture on Tuesday. Couture's lawyer says he will appeal the decision to the state Board of Mediation and Labor Arbitration.
Board members say Couture told former Lt. Thomas Cummings that the department was investigating a sexual assault allegation against Cummings. Couture told the board he did tell Cummings about the allegation, but he denied knowing about any criminal investigation.
Cummings was charged in January with sexual assault and other crimes. Police say he had sexual relations with boys he enticed using Internet sites and chat rooms.
