The Latest On Hector

By Jenna Carlesso

October 25, 2010

In case you missed it on Friday, Steve Goode is following the civil court case involving state Rep. Hector Robles. Robles, a Hartford police officer facing departmental charges for allegedly running a double billing scheme, is now embroiled in a lawsuit brought by his opponent in the August primary, Alyssa Peterson.

The suit alleges, among other things, that Robles lied to the 6th District town committee and voters about the seriousness of the internal police department charges against him, and that the committee wouldn't have endorsed him had they known.

The suit also alleges that Robles and Hartford Police Union Chief Richard Rodriguez falsely published a flier touting a union endorsement that was never voted on by the rank and file or executive committee, and that Robles misused $26,000 in public campaign finance funding to fraudulently tout his record with the police department.
