Prosecutors say the incidents occurred between 2005 and 2008, while the 39-year-old Bloomfield resident taught at the William Mason Elementary School in the Montville Public School District. His alleged victims were four female pupils between the ages of six and seven.

Fennes was first arrested in March 2012.
