BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A judge has ruled that a champion racer of radio-controlled cars and convicted sex offender from Connecticut may leave the state to participate in races abroad.

The Connecticut Post reports (https://bit.ly/21Dlq4H ) Superior Court Judge Frank Iannotti agreed Thursday to alter the probation of Christopher Tosolini to allow him to enter the Euro Touring Series.

Tosolini, an Ansonia resident and native of Italy, was convicted of sexually assaulting two teenage girls in Fairfield in January 2012. He was sentenced to serve 10 years in prison, suspended after six months, and 10 years’ probation.

Iannotti commended Tosolini for his progress in his probation and said “nobody wants to see it interfere with your work.” The 38-year-old must notify his probation officer when he exits the country and returns.
