WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - Police are hoping more victims will come forward after a former Norwalk teacher pleaded not guilty yesterday to charges that he beat and whipped young men he recruited for fake overseas intelligence jobs.
Larry Bottone, of Stamford, spent two years in prison in the mid-90s after being caught on tape whipping and abusing his students in Norwalk.
Now, Westchester County officials say he's facing 29 charges for similar acts last summer.
During the investigation, police found an abuse kit that included rope, needles, strapping tape and vegetable oil in Bottone's car.
Prosecutors said they have identified four victims, but police are now expanding their search for additional victims in Connecticut.
