NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) — A former Central Connecticut State University professor has been arrested on charges of sexually assaulting a student.
Daniel Gula (GOO-'la) was accused last year of the assault. New Britain police arrested him Wednesday on charges of sexual assault, unlawful restraint and disorderly conduct.
Gula was arrested this week because the victim decided to pursue charges when he resigned rather than be fired, leaving open the possibility he could be hired elsewhere. Fox CT reports (http://bit.ly/1IP4kom ) that the university asked him to resign.
The student told the university she chose Gula, an adjunct English professor, as a mentor. The two exchanged emails and the alleged assault took place during a visit to Gula's office.
Gula's Hartford lawyer, Salvatore Bonanno, said he's gathering information about the allegations.
A university spokesman declined to comment.
