WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A former Massachusetts school administrator who previously had sex solicitation charges against him dropped is facing new charges of sexually assaulting a teenage boy.

The Telegram & Gazette (https://bit.ly/2ph25th ) reports that 44-year-old Steven Bliss was charged earlier this month with indecent assault and battery on a person 14 or over. He faces arraignment on May 3.

Police allege Bliss sexually assaulted a 14-year-old boy sometime between Dec. 18, 2010 and Dec. 18, 2011 after driving the boy to Bliss‘ home.

Bliss‘ lawyer declined comment Thursday. A message left at a number for Bliss was not returned.

Prosecutors dropped the solicitation charges in September.



Bliss has worked as a principal and superintendent in several Massachusetts school districts and most recently had been headmaster at a private school in Braintree.
