WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) _ State court officials have placed Waterbury Superior Court’s top judicial marshal on unpaid leave while they investigate undisclosed allegations.
The Republican-American of Waterbury reports that 69-year-old Anthony Candido of Milford was informed in a letter dated Friday that he was relieved of all duties effective immediately and ordered not to enter any Judicial Branch locations. He was also told to turn in his badge, ID card and other items.
The allegations haven’t been released. The Judicial Branch’s human resource management unit is investigating.
Candido didn’t immediately return a message seeking comment Tuesday. He’s worked for the state since 1981 and has been the chief judicial marshal in Waterbury for the past decade. Judicial marshals provide courthouse security and transport prisoners.
