Domestic dispute charges against Seymour cop thrown out
A Milford Superior Court judge has agreed to nolle a domestic dispute case involving Seymour police Sgt. Richard Gittings and his wife, Laurie Anne. Judge John F. Cronan granted a nolle in the case, which means that while there was probable cause for an arrest, the state has decided not to prosecute. Under a nolle, the prosecution retains the right to reopen the case at any time during the next 13 months. Richard Gittings, 46, and Laurie Anne Gittings, 45, were arrested and charged with breach of peace on Aug. 15 at their Glen Circle home, following a domestic dispute.
