STRATFORD - The former Stratford High School teacher who admitted to wrestling with students is facing new criminal charges.

Police have added strangulation, sexual assault and risk of injury to minor to the charges filed against 47-year-old Gregg Gustafson.

He was arrested earlier this year after he was allegedly wrestling roughly with a student and three other boys while their parents were not home.

Police say Gustafson ripped one of the boy's underwear and tried to bribe them to keep quiet.
