    Torrington superintendent warns against social media taunting

    The superintendent for Torrington schools is warning that inappropriate comments made against a student or staff member could lead to punishment for students including expulsion. The recent arrests of two Torrington High School athletes in sexual assault cases have led to online taunts directed at an accuser. The two 18-year-old students, Edgar Gonzalez and Joan Toribio, have pleaded not guilty to felony second-degree sexual assault and other crimes in cases involving 13-year-old girls. In a letter posted Monday on the school system’s website, Superintendent Cheryl Kloczko said ‘‘use of social media by Torrington students to disparage other Torrington students is entirely unacceptable.’’
