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

The Telegram & Gazette (https://bit.ly/2q2kqOz ) reports that 44-year-old Steven Bliss was released on personal recognizance at his arraignment Wednesday after a not guilty plea to indecent assault and battery on a 14-year-old boy was entered on his behalf.

Authorities allege the assault occurred sometime between December 2010 and December 2011 at Bliss‘ Worcester home at the time. Police say Bliss gave the teen a drink that made him feel drowsy then touched the teen inappropriately.

Bliss‘ lawyer refused comment when reached by phone.

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