Greenwich official charged with groping woman greeted by protesters
STAMFORD — A town official has been greeted by raucous demonstrators as he appeared in court to face a charge of groping a woman at a medical care center.
The 71-year-old Keyserling pleaded not guilty to a charge of misdemeanor sexual assault during his court appearance.
He was arrested on Jan. 11 after authorities said he forcibly touched a woman’s lower body at the Nathaniel Witherell Home, a town-owned facility.
Keyserling told police the incident was meant as a joke and he apologized. His lawyer has said it was not sexual in nature.
Protesters held signs that read: “Stop sexual violence” and “A pinch is not a punchline.”
