Moore campaign: Write-in candidacy ‘an option'

BRIDGEPORT — The write-in ballot option is typically the preferred voting method of highly disgruntled citizens dissatisfied with their ballot choices, and of pranksters suggesting some implausible individual or fictional character for elected office.


Marilyn Moore and her supporters may try to make the write-in candidate mean something in Bridgeport.


Having lost Tuesday’s Democratic primary to Mayor Joe Ganim by a small margin, but with seemingly no other realistic way onto November’s general election ballot, Moore is seriously considering continuing her campaign to run the city as a write-in.


“That is one of the options that we’re pursuing,” Moore said Thursday night. But, she added, “It’s just not the only option.”


Moore also called for “the state and national Democratic Party, Governor Ned Lamont and state and federal authorities (to) conduct a full investigation of absentee ballots cast in the primary election.” Moore beat Ganim on the voting machines Tuesday, but he won the night with absentee or mail-in ballots.


Moore’s campaign had unsuccessfully asked state elections officials earlier in the summer to better police the use of absentee ballots in Connecticut’s largest city given a long history of abuse and fraud.


“The days of staying silent and therefore complicit in blatant voter fraud in Bridgeport must end now,” Moore said Thursday.


Since January when Moore, a state senator, announced she would challenge Ganim, she had pledged to, one way or another, appear on the November ballot.


Moore, who has a reputation for being independent of Bridgeport’s Democratic movers-and-shakers, as expected lost the endorsement to Ganim when the Democratic Town...

Former Ansonia parole officer accused of sexual assault

MILFORD — A former state parole officer accused of coercing a woman into having sex with him has pleaded not guilty.


               

Edward Caruso, 52, of Ansonia, faces charges of first-degree sexual assault and coercion.


               

He pleaded not guilty Sept. 5.


               

A message was left with his lawyer Thursday.


               

Ansonia Police arrested Caruso Aug. 3 after a nearly yearlong investigation. He was released after posting $10,000 bond.


               

Police said a woman who has a relative Caruso supervised as a parole officer accused Caruso of sexually assaulting her last August.


               

Caruso allegedly admitted having a relationship with the woman, but told police it was consensual.


               

Further details of the allegations are not publicly available because the arrest warrant is sealed.


               

Caruso retired from the state corrections department two days before his arrest, according to Karen Martucci, the department’s director of external affairs.


               

“There wasn’t a criminal arrest while (he was) employed by our agency,” Martucci said.


               

Caruso had worked for more than 25 years in the department, having been hired in January 1993.

Man accused of stealing from Milford car lot

MILFORD — Police arrested a New Haven man Tuesday morning for allegedly stealing cars from an auto garage in 2017.


               

According to Milford police, officers took custody of Johnny Demps, 20, of New Haven, shortly after 11 a.m. Tuesday on a warrant for his arrest. Police said Demps is accused of breaking into an auto wholesale garage in Milford on Jan. 20, 2017, and stealing kes to two vehicles in the lot, then stealing the vehicles. Police said the vehicles were later recovered.


               

Demps’s DNA was recovered from the stolen vehicles, police said, which led to the warrant. Demps was charged with second-degree larceny and held on a $35,000 bond. He appeared in court Wednesday and his case was continued to Sept. 30.

For the first time in a week, temps to rise in mid-80s

After several days of cool, fall-like temperatures, the thermometer will rise into the mid-80s Wednesday.


Temperatures will be a few degrees cooler along the shoreline that will also have a southwest wind between 9 and 11 mph.


The last time we had temperatures in the mid-80s was a week ago on Sept. 4.


Six days of cooler temperatures in the low 70s during the day and 50s at night have dropped the average temperature for the month to 0.8 degrees, according to the Northeast Regional Climate Center.


The coolest night was on Saturday when the low was 48 in Norfolk, 49 in Danbury and 56 along the shoreline.


The National Weather Service says the warm temperatures and an approaching cold front could spark some showers early Thursday.


The wamer August-like temperatures won’t last.


Temperatures will cool by several degrees on Thursday with increasing winds from the east.


The forecast


Today: Mostly sunny, with a high near 85. Southwest wind 7 to 9 mph.


Tonight: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 5a.m. Partly cloudy, with a low around 65. Southwest wind around 6 mph becoming light and variable in the evening.


Thursday: A 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly before 11am. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 78. North wind around 6 mph.


Thursday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 52. Northeast wind 5 to 7 mph.


Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 72. Southeast wind 7 to 10 mph.


Friday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 56.

Cops: Shelton man found naked in commuter parking lot

NAUGATUCK — A Shelton man was arrested Monday after police said he was found naked inside a parked car with illegal narcotics and drug paraphernalia.


               

Police were sent to the Cross Street commuter lot off Route 8 at 7:15 p.m. to investigate a report of a suspicious person/vehicle.


               

Officers “were advised that a white male was walking around the lot half naked in only a white T-shirt,” according to the arrest report. When they arrived, “the accused was found in the driver’s seat of the vehicle naked and in possession of illegal narcotics and drug paraphernalia.”


               

Richard Remokitis, 59, of Woodland Park in Shelton, was charged with breach of peace, possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.


               

He was released after posting a $500 bond and is to appear in court Sept. 18.

Milford man pleads guilty to sexually assaulting 14-year-old

MILFORD — A local man will be sentenced to serve three and a half years in prison after pleading guilty Wednesday to sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl.


Edward Uberti, 23, pleaded guilty before Judge Peter Brown to second-degree sexual assault in connection to assaults on the girl between April and September 2017.


In court Wednesday, State’s Attorney Margaret Kelley said a friend of the victim reported the allegations to a school resource officer at her high school in November 2017.


During an interview, the victim said she had met Uberti through a friend and began speaking with him on social media.


The girl said she would leave her home without her parents knowing and go to Uberti’s address.


Uberti asked the girl to have sex, the prosecutor said, and the victim indicated that “she did not say yes, but did not say no, (and) just let it happen.”


Minors cannot legally consent to sex with adults.


Uberti “continued to keep having sex with her after that time despite her telling him no,” Kelley said.


In a separate case, Uberti pleaded guilty under the Alford doctrine to second-degree assault in connection to an April 2017 incident at his home.


Kelley said Uberti had been drinking and smoking marijuana with a friend but got into an argument that became physical, eventually slashing the man in the hand with a knife.


A plea made under the Alford Doctrine means a defendant doesn’t admit guilt but concedes he could be found guilty of the crime if he went to trial.


A plea deal in the case calls for a 12-year prison sentence to be suspended after Uberti serves three and a half years behind bars, followed by 15 years of probation.

Bridgeport man accused of murder arrested on new gun, drug charges

BRIDGEPORT — A man awaiting trial for murder was arrested after police found an assault rifle, body armor and fentanyl in his car.


“It looks like he was ready to go,” Superior Court Judge Tracy Lee Dayton commented during the arraignment hearing on Tuesday as she ordered Richard “Steve” Evans held in lieu of $750,000 bond.


The 39-year-old Evans had been free on $750,000 bond after being arrested in August 2017 for allegedly fatally shooting a co-worker at a local moving company.


“Mr. Evans is presumed innocent and denies the allegations against him,” said Evans’ lawyer, Sean Barrett, as he left the Golden Hill Street courthouse Tuesday afternoon.


Senior Assistant State’s Attorney Tatiana Messina told the judge during the brief arraignment hearing that in addition to the assault rifle, police found large amounts of pills and fentanyl in Evans’ car.


“He is a danger to the community,” Messina said, urging the judge to set a $1 million bond.


The judge continued the case to Sept. 25.


Police said they received a call Monday on the department’s tip line that Evans had left a Stamford residence with a gun and a large quantity of drugs and was headed back to his home on Peet Street in Bridgeport.


“Caller is afraid because Richard is on trial for murder,” police said the caller told them.


Police said they set up a surveillance outside Evans’ home Monday night and spotted him carrying a cooler toward his home. They took him into custody and found a large quantity of marijuana in the cooler, police said.


When officers searched Evans’ car, which was parked nearby, police said they found a Mini Draco...

BRIDGEPORT — Roughly a year after the departure of its former president, William Jennings, Bridgeport Hospital has named a replacement.


The hospital announced Monday that Anne Diamond, president of Day Kimball Hospital in Putnam, will take on the position. Diamond was chosen after a nationwide search, according to the hospital.


“I am delighted to have Anne bring her exceptional skills to the talented Bridgeport Hospital family and our health system,” Marna P. Borgstrom, CEO, Yale New Haven Health and Yale New Haven Hospital, said in a news release. “She has an intimate familiarity with the evolving health care environment in Connecticut and a strong track record of forging lasting and strategic relationships with physicians and the broader community.”


Diamond has served as Day Kimball’s president since 2017. Earlier this year, Day Kimball announced its intention to join Prospect Healthcare, which currently owns Waterbury, Manchester and Rockville General hospitals in Connecticut.


Prior to joining Day Kimball, Diamond spent seven years at UConn Health’s John Dempsey Hospital, including four years as its chief executive officer.


She began her health care career as a nuclear medicine technologist and worked at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., for six years before she was recruited to the Electric Power Research Institute, based in Palo Alto, Calif. She lives in West Hartford and is married with a 19-year-old son.


Jennings left in September of last year to become president and CEO of Reading Hospital in Pennsylvania. He served at Bridgeport Hospital’s president and CEO for roughly eight years.


Following his departure, Dr. Michael Ivy served as...
