HARTFORD COURANT REPORTS JUDICIAL MARSHAL GETS SLAP ON THE WRIST FOR PROMOTING PROSTITUTION, SEXUAL ASSAULT AND TRAFFICKING IN PERSONS!
David Owens of The Hartford Courant reports as follows:
LITCHFIELD -- Former Waterbury judicial marshal Michael A. Connelly was sentenced to one year in prison Tuesday on charges of promoting prostitution, sexual assault and trafficking in persons.
Connelly — brother of the late Waterbury State's Attorney John Connelly — had pleaded guilty under the Alford doctrine, meaning he did not admit guilt but conceded that prosecutors had enough evidence for a conviction.
Connelly, 54, received a sentence of 12 years in prison suspended after one year served and five years' probation.
"I'm sorry. I made some bad decisions," Connelly told Superior Court Judge John A. Danaher III. "I won't be back."
