Man Admits Sexually Assaulting Developmentally Disabled Woman in Manchester

Goodwill job coach pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a client in his care.

A former job coach admitted Monday to sexually assaulting a developmentally disabled client from a Manchester group home as he transported her to various work sites in the area, according to a Hartford Courant report.

Kenneth Wilson, 40, of East Hartford, was charged by Manchester Police and East Hartford Police on counts of first and second-degree sexual assault. East Hartford Police charged that Wilson used force to coerce the 22-year-old woman into having sex with him, while the Manchester charges note that the victim was mentally unable to consent. 

Wilson gave his testimony in Manchester Superior Court as part of a plea deal, the Courant reported, in which Wilson will serve 4 and a half years in prison, 10 years probation and have to register as a sex offender.

Wilson, who worked for Goodwill, reportedly admitted to coercing the young woman into having sex with him over several months in various places, including in van while parked at Stop & Shop in Manchester and other store parking lots, in his home, his girlfriend's home and at bathrooms where she was working.

The young woman eventually reported the assault to a manager at the group home where she lived.
