Stochastic variational integrators for constrained, stochastic mechanical systems are developed in this paper. The main results of the paper are twofold: an equivalence is established between a stochastic Hamilton-Pontryagin (HP) principle in generalized coordinates and constrained coordinates via Lagrange multipliers, and variational partitioned Runge-Kutta (VPRK) integrators are extended to this class of systems. Among these integrators are first and second-order strongly convergent RATTLE-type integrators. We prove strong order of accuracy of the methods provided. The paper also reviews the deterministic treatment of VPRK integrators from the HP viewpoint.
