NORWALK - A Milford man accused of fondling an 8-year-old boy at the Norwalk YMCA says it's all a misunderstanding.

Vincent Pozzouli, 63, is charged with touching the boy during a gymnastics class last month.

Pozzouli says he did legitimately touch the boy as part of the class and the boy's parents simply misinterpreted his actions.

Court records show Pozzouli was previously accused of assaulting an 11-year-old boy a decade ago in Maine. In that case, Pozzouli was convicted of assault, but acquitted of unlawful sexual contact.Gymnastics instructor denies sex assault of boy
