STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - Two Connecticut school administrators are seeking a special form of probation on charges they failed to report a sexual relationship between a teacher and a student.

Stamford High School principal Donna Valentine and assistant principal Roth Nordin on Tuesday asked a judge to accept them into the Accelerated Rehabilitation Program for first-time offenders. Defendants who successfully complete the program have their criminal records expunged.

The two are accused of violating a law that requires school officials to report any suspected relationship between and adult and a student.

Prosecutors say they knew of the relationship between an 18-year-old and 32-year-old Danielle Watkins of Norwalk, who was charged in July with sexual assault. Police say Watkins gave the student drugs and sex and threatened to fail him if he told anyone.
