A Pomperaug high school student is preparing to sue a teacher, the region 15 school district and the towns of Southbury and Middlebury.
This lawsuit stems from a series of sexually explicit e-mails, texts and photos the female student claims to have received from a former teacher.
Police say Christopher Bantz, 41, of Plainville was charged in April with fourth-degree sexual assault, which is a misdemeanor.
Police also say “he rubbed up against the student's back side with his genitals in a classroom while both were fully clothed, and kissed her on the head.”
Fanol Bojka, a Waterbury lawyer who represents the alleged victim, says the student is now a high school senior.
“Right now the case is still under investigation. We're just gathering our information,” Bojka said.
