Files in Conn. doc's sex assault case may come out
MIDDLETOWN, Conn.—The full details of sexual assault allegations against a Connecticut doctor may soon be revealed as a state judge considers unsealing arrest warrant records in the case.
Middletown Superior Court Judge Susan Handy is set to hold a hearing on the sealing issue on Tuesday in the case of Dr. Tory Westbrook of Glastonbury, who is accused of sexually assaulting patients at the Community Health Center in Clinton. Arrest warrant affidavits that contain the full allegations have been sealed from public view since Westbrook's arrest in June.
Westbrook denies all the charges, which include more than 30 counts of sexual assault. Most of the charges are misdemeanors. His lawyer says the allegations involve inappropriate touching during patient exams.
Westbrook, the husband of state Judge Dawne Westbrook, remains free on bail.
