Two Litchfield County educators have been charged with not reporting allegations of sexual misconduct against a colleague.
Police arrested Plymouth Center School principal Sherri Turner and second-grade teacher Melissa Morelli Wednesday morning.
Both are charged for allegedly keeping quiet about claims of sexual abuse made against fourth-grade teacher James Eschert.
Eschert was arrested in January after prosecutors say he repeatedly touched students inappropriately over an extended period of time.
Police say more arrests are expected.
