Willimantic, Connecticut (The Weekly Vice) - Adam Friedman, a 46-year-old school teacher from Newington charged with sexually abusing 15-year-old begged judge for castration instead of jail sentence.
According to Willimantic police, Friedman was an instructor at the Arts at the Capitol Theater magnet school in Willimantic when he reportedly had multiple sexual encounters with a student at motels and at her grandparent's home between July and November 2008.
