UPDATE: Charges of sexual abuse of boys levied against George Harasz and former husband of Douglas Wirth a few years back were later dismissed as reported by the Hartford Courant (10/28/2014) due to the alleged victim, an 8 year old boy’s inability to testify. The boy both men were accused of sexually assaulting was one of several foster children taken in by the couple.
According to Prosecutor Anthony Bochicchio, “DCF social worker and court-appointed guardian, attended a preparation session….” before the actual court hearing. During the preparation session, the alleged victim “became physically and emotionally overwhelmed, and shut down, when questioned about the abuse.”
The child later made statements that were inconsistent with previous statements. Prosecutor Bochicchio concluded that, “I could not in good conscience go forward with this case..” In addition, “All agreed that it would be in the best interest of the complainant not to testify.”
*Note: Douglas Wirth was found not guilty of abusing and sexually assaulting the 8 year old a month earlier (September 2014).
Last fall, the attorney for Harasz and Wirth filed a lawsuit for $100 million, punitive damages including interest and attorneys’ fees against child-protection commissioner Joette Katz and Department of Children and Families.
Both men are alleging that DCF concealed the misbehavior of two of the foster children prior to coming to live with the couple.
According to the complaint filed in Superior Court, Hartford Judicial District dated September 21, 1015 Harasz and Wirth are seeking redress for
“malicious prosecution against all defendants for an incomplete, misleading and biased investigation; and against DCF for unconstitutional policies, and for failure to train and supervise, and for willfully and knowingly attacking by twisting truths and facts. The Department and Children and Families (“DCF”) system, including the biased and leading forensic interviews, is designed to convict people accused of child sexual abuse; it does not exist to protect falsely accused people, and in this case was used to fabricate a case that was not based on facts.
According to the complaint both men once heralded as “heroic foster and adoptive parents of a number of boys” made it clear that they were willing to take in boys provided that none had previous “sex abuse issues” because of the problems presented with abused children “where multiple children are involved.”
The complaint can be viewed in its entirety here.
Do not get it twisted, homosexual Married Couple, George Harasz and Douglas Wirth, of Glastonbury (shown above), plead guilty to the charges levied against them in the rape of two of their adopted children.
Under the plea deal, they would have received a slap on the wrist, i.e., a suspended sentence and probation.
However, due to the surfacing of further allegations of sexual abuse by three more children against Harasz and Wirth all bets were suddenly taken off the table. Thus, Harasz and Wirth rescinded their plea deal opting instead for a trial.

Homosexual Married Couple Accused of Repeatedly Raping Their Adopted Sons Withdraw Plea Deal
Funny, America’s Mainstream Media hasn’t said much about this–Wonder if that’s because it seems like half of the so called males in America’s lame street males are homosexuals?
‘They took turns raping me’: New claims of child sex abuse revealed as gay couple accused of molesting two of their 9 adopted children withdraw guilty plea and decide to go to trial
A same-sex couple accused of sexually abusing their adopted children are facing trial after withdrawing from a plea agreement as they are facing new allegations of molestation.
George Harasz and Douglas Wirth, of Glastonbury, were set to be sentenced Friday in Hartford Superior Court under a deal calling for suspended prison sentences and probation.
But the men instead withdrew from the agreement. The married couple pleaded no contest to charges of risk of injury to a minor in January.
Harasz and Wirth adopted nine children beginning in 2000 and were arrested in November 2011.
Police said two boys, ages 5 and 15, accused Harasz of sexually assaulting them. Harasz was charged with first-degree sexual assault and Wirth was charged with third-degree sexual assault of the 15-year-old boy.
Other children in the home told authorities they weren’t abused.
Friday was supposed to be a sentencing hearing for Harasz and Wirth, who pleaded guilty in January to one felony count each of risk of injury to a minor.
But the agreement fell apart at the last moment when the defendants learned of a new allegation of abuse made against Harasz by one of the alleged victims, the Hartford Courant reported.
The case was thrown into further turmoil after additional allegations of abuse came to light involving three other of the nine children adopted by the Connecticut men.
Prosecutor David Zagaja told Judge Joan Alexander that in light of the revelations, which could result in additional criminal charges, there was no point in going forward with the sentencing. Instead, Zagaja said the proper course of action was to go to trial……
…According to the report cited by the prosecutors, the couple’s adopted son said he has scars ‘from being held down and raped and that those injuries were inflicted by a weapon….
In the meantime, the Progressive media who are more interested in the so-called rights of homosexual couples than they the rights of children, pedophilia and sexual abuse are for the most part ignoring this story, pretending that it does not exist. Of course, if it was their child or a family member who was being repeatedly raped, the handling of this story would be far different.
