State Police arrested Mr. Casella on Friday on an active warrant and charged him with Sexual Assault 4th degree, for an incident that occurred in Brookfield in August.

State Police say Casella is alleged to have used various instruments as well as his own hands and ears to manipulate and listen to victims’ abdomens. During these sessions, Casella would record and photograph the female victims, and following the sessions he would compensate them with cash payments. Casella allegedly told these victims the monetary compensation was from the company the session results were submitted to.

Investigators discovered a hard drive containing several recordings and photographs of unidentified female victims.

If you recognize Casella and feel you were a victim, please contact State Police Detective Barbero at (860) 904-0493. All calls will remain confidential.   

Casella was able to post a $10,000 surety bond and has a date in court in Danbury on Nov 29.
