Wilton man charged with sexual assault

John Prizio, 22, of 14 Kings Lane, was arrested Friday, March 22, and charged with one count of sexual assault in the second degree and risk of injury to a minor. Both are felony charges.

The charges stemmed from numerous incidents involving a girl, now 16, over a two-year period from 2010 through 2012. The crimes were not reported to Wilton police until October 2012, and she did not decide to pursue charges until January 2013.

Police said Mr. Prizio was an acquaintance of the family and at the girl’s home on a number of occasions. She could not be specific as to how many times he molested her, police said.

Lt. Donald Wakeman said there is no physical evidence as to sexual activity, but there was documentation that allowed police to establish a relationship between the two. Lt. Wakeman did not specify what that relationship was.

Mr. Prizio was released on $10,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on April 1.
