Report: Prosecutor Suspended Over Courtroom Photos

DANBURY, Conn. (AP) _ A state prosecutor in Danbury has been placed on administrative leave, allegedly over complaints that he surreptitiously took photos of women’s legs and feet in court.

The News-Times of Danbury, citing multiple sources it did not identify, reports David Holzbach, a senior assistant state’s attorney, is accused of using a camera concealed in a pen to take the photos inside the state Superior Courthouse on White Street.

The newspaper reports Holzbach is on paid leave from his $129,000-a-year job, but has not been charged with a crime. Chief State’s Attorney Kevin Kane declined to comment, calling the case a personnel matter.

Holzbach told the newspaper that he has not been informed of the nature of the allegations.

The 52-year-old Holzbach has been a prosecutor in Danbury for 24 years.
