STRATFORD, Conn. — A Stratford High School teacher who was charged with sexually assaulting a student while wrestling with him, is seeking special probation on charges that he tampered with a witness in the case, according to the Connecticut Post.

Gregg Alan Gustafson, 47, of Stamford, is seeking accelerated rehabilitation in which he would not plead guilty but would be placed on probation and the charges dismissed if he committed no further offenses, the Post said.

Gustafson is also awaiting trial on charges of fourth-degree sexual assault, second-degree strangulation and risk of injury to a minor in connection with a 14-year-old boy he wrestled back in February 2016, the Connecticut Post said.
