Ex-school worker pleads not guilty to sex assaults
GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass.—A Stockbridge town employee has pleaded not guilty to sexually assaulting three pre-teen girls at a now-closed school where he was an adjustment counselor.
Thirty-six-year-old Scott Muir was arraigned Thursday in Southern Berkshire District Court on charges dating between 2003 and 2005, when he worked at the now-closed Stockbridge Plain School. He's charged with rape and indecent assault and battery of two girls and indecent assault and battery of a third. He was released on $10,000 cash bail with GPS monitoring.
Berkshire District Attorney David Capeless says there may be other victims. Peter Dillon, Berkshire Hills Regional school superintendent, tells the Berkshire Eagle (http://bit.ly/HifxQ3) the district is cooperating with the investigation.
Town Administrator Jorja Ann Marsden declined to comment on Muir's status in his jobs, which include emergency management director and office facilities manager.
