METRO BRIEFING | CONNECTICUT; Hartford: More Charges Over Girl

A West Hartford man was charged yesterday with 11 counts of sexual assault in connection with a Bloomfield girl who was missing for a year before she was found last month in a storage room in his home, the police said. The man, Adam Gault, 41, pleaded not guilty yesterday in State Superior Court to other charges related to the case, including unlawful restraint and reckless endangerment. He was scheduled to return to court next Tuesday to enter a plea on the remaining charges. His lawyer, Gerald Klein, said Mr. Gault ''absolutely denies'' that there was a sexual relationship with the girl, now 15. She was found on June 6 when police officers searched Mr. Gault's home. An officer pushed aside a dresser and found the girl in a small room.
