MILTON —The Chittenden Unit for Special Investigations (CUSI) was referred on July 9 a case from the Milton Police Department regarding the alleged sexual abuse of a 10-year-old male approximately fifteen years ago. The abuse was reportedly perpetrated by Jerry Normandin, 62 of Milton.
Detective Chistolini began investigating this incident and subsequently developed probable cause to believe that Normandin committed the crimes of Aggravated Sex Assault on a Child and Lewd or Lascivious Conduct with a Child.
On the afternoon of July 23, CUSI was contacted by the South Burlington Police Department regarding the alleged ongoing sexual abuse of a 15-year-old male that is developmentally disabled. The current, ongoing abuse was reportedly perpetuated by the juvenile's current bus driver, Jerry Normandin.
The South Burlington School District immediately placed Normandin on paid administrative leave after becoming aware of the allegations, as noted in the attached statement from the South Burlington School District Superintendent, David Young.
Detective Boyer along with a family services worker from DCF began investigating the circumstances surrounding the newly reported sexual abuse and subsequently developed probable cause to believe that Normandin committed the crime of Lewd or Lascivious Conduct with a Child.
As a result of CUSI's investigations, Normandin was arrested on July 29 for both cases and charged with Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child and multiple counts of Lewd or Lascivious Conduct with a Child.
Following Normandin's arrest, he was released from custody on Conditions of Release by the Honorable Judge Alison Arms with an initial arraignment scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Friday, July 30.
