Judge Extends Seal On Glastonbury Doctor’s Arrest Warrant

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) – A judge presiding over the case of a doctor charged with sexually assaulting patients at a community health care center in Clinton has agreed to keep the arrest warrant sealed for another 30 days.

The Middletown Superior Court judge said Thursday that the interest in preserving the investigation’s integrity and protecting the identities of the alleged victims of Dr. Tory Westbrook of Glastonbury outweighed the public’s interest in opening the arrest warrant affidavits.

Westbrook was charged June 5 with several counts of second-degree sexual assault in connection with alleged incidents between 2010 and January. He is the husband of Superior Court Judge Dawne Westbrook.

A prosecutor argued the criminal files should be sealed.

Westbrook’s lawyer, Norman Pattis, opposed sealing the files. He says Westbrook is innocent.
