Case for Milford Superintendent Sex Charges Continued

    Milford school Superintendent faces a judge on sex charges.

    Dr. Harvey Polansky did not enter a plea on Tuesday as he faced a judge on sex assault charges, stemming from what police have called affectionate relationships with a few of his subordinates.

    The case against Milford's school superintendent will go back to court on Feb. 25.

    Milford Police received complaints, accusing Polansky of inappropriately touching two school principals on several occasions on  Board of Education property during the months of June and September 2009.

    He was charged with two counts of sexual contact in the fourth degree and two counts of breach of peace. The court records are sealed because of allegations of sexual assault.

    A report released by the school board last week indicates Polansky told a school investigator that he might have kissed two female school principals, but he said there was nothing sexual about it.

    The women also accused Polansky of groping them. On Tuesday, he was ordered to stay away from the women who filed the complaints.

    He agreed to step down in exchange for a $125,000 buyout of his contract, which includes payment for unused vacation and sick time and health insurance coverage for him and his wife for several months.
