GREENWICH, Conn. -- Timothy Teft, a former teacher at the Brunswick School in Greenwich, has been linked to a sexual abuse scandal at a Rhode Island prep school that occurred in the 1970s, according to Greenwich Time.

Teft, who is serving five years at Fort Dix Federal Correctional Institution in New Jersey after pleading guilty in a 2014 child pornography case, was a teacher at the Brunswick School in the '70s and '80s, the Time said. He was accused by three former students of abusing them in the 1980s in New York state, but no charges were ever brought in that case, said Greenwich Time.

An attorney involved with the Rhode Island case at St. George’s School said, Teft, who worked there in the '70s, said dozens of former students have accused him of sexually abused them, added Greenwich Time.
