Conn. Gay Couple Accused of Molesting Adopted Sons
A gay Glastonbury, Connecticut couple is being charged with sexually assaulting their adopted sons over the past 10 years, reported Connecticut’s Fox station, FoxCT.
Doug Wirth, 43, and his husband George Harasz, 48, were arrested on Wednesday on sexual assault and other charges after the Glastonbury police completed their investigation. The authorities started their investigation after they received complaints from the Department of Children and Families.
Wirth posted his $75,000 bail and was released from jail. Harasz, however, did not come up with his $350,000 bail and was turned over to the state Department of Correction, the news station reported.
Harasz will appear in court on Jan. 11 and Wirth on Jan. 10.
The allegations have caused turmoil within the family and has divided them, with family members forced to choose sides. Harasz’s biological daughter, Jackie, 19, told the media that she strongly believes that the couple is innocent. Chris Harasz, one of the adopted boys, says that all of the allegations are true.
