Wilton officials sued over sex allegations involving Fairfield man

November 5, 2015 

STAMFORD — The parents of a 4-year-old girl claim the town of Wilton and the Wilton Board of Education are negligently responsible for allowing their daughter to be sexually assaulted by her former preschool aide.

In a lawsuit filed Thursday in Superior Court here, the parents, named in the suit as Mother and Father Doe, claim did not properly take action either to prevent the aide, Eric von Kohorn, from assaulting their daughter and did not properly report the alleged assault as required by law.

On Oct. 23, the 55-year-old Von Kohorn was sentenced to two years in prison and to register as a sex offender after pleading guilty in Bridgeport Superior Court to possessing more than 100 images of child pornography on his computer.
