Peter Tony, a 69-year-old Bethel resident, and former foster parent, is facing more charges of sexually abusing minors.
Tony is already in jail on seven counts of sexual abuse of a minor. Now, a Bethel grand jury indicted him on three more similar counts.
The first victim was a 4-year-old who was allegedly abused for the span of about a year.
This new victim was allegedly abused in 1998. That’s the same year that the Peter Tony’s foster license, with his wife Marilyn, was revoked by the Office of Children’s Services, after 14 years of being foster parents.
