Judge Issues Protective Order in Sex Assault Case

The Danbury man arraigned Wednesday for threatening, first-degree sexual assault, providing alcohol to a minor and fourth-degree sexual assault was ordered to stay away from the victim.

Daniel Colon, 35, City Streets, Danbury, took a protective order from the court marshal and crushed it in his hands a few seconds after Judge Susan Reynolds finished reading it to him.

That caused silence in Danbury Superior Court that ended when Pubic Defender Miles Gerety hurriedly and quietly admonished Colon.

Colon was charged Tuesday with first-degree sexual assault, providing alcohol to a minor, fourth-degree sexual assault and second-degree threatening. Judge Reynods set Colon's bond at $75,000.

According to the state of Connecticut Judicial Department case look-up, Colon has previous convictions in Danbury for third-degree robbery, sixth-degree larceny, failure to appear, second-degree threatening, driving a car with a suspended license, violation of probation and other offenses.

Why does the court tolerate this behavior from a three + time convicted felon? The probability that he will continue his criminal behavior should dictate a very long incarceration. Most 50 year old criminals begin to slow down. We spend time and money defending him, prosecuting him,and institutionalizing him over and over, and his victims are damaged for life by his criminal behaviors. Judge Reynolds must have not noticed his disrespectful act, as she is not one to tolerate that sort of behavior.
