On May 15, 2021, the Plainfield Police Department initiated an investigation after receiving a complaint from a concerned parent regarding inappropriate text messages on their child’s cell phone. Some of the messages included inappropriate photographs and the admission of supplying the child with marijuana.
The investigation revealed that the messages were sent from Plainfield Central School’s 8th Grade Social Studies Teacher, 31 year old Craig N. McCue of 118 Main Street in North Stonington, Connecticut. Further investigation revealed that McCue had several inappropriate relationships with other minors.
As a result, the Plainfield Police Department obtained three (3) arrest warrants charging him with two (2) counts of Sexual Assault in the 4th Degree and seven (7) counts of Risk of Injury to a Minor. All victims at the time were under the age of 16 and were either students, former students, or players he had coached.
On October 12, 2021 at approximately 8:00 PM, McCue was placed under arrest and charged with the above crimes. McCue was held on a $200,000 court set bond and is scheduled to appear at the State of Connecticut Superior Court in Danielson on October 13, 2021.
The Plainfield Police Department is asking anyone that may have additional information related to McCue to contact the Plainfield Police Department at (860)564-0804. All calls will remain confidential.
