Looks like there are bad guys in Trumbull too! So don't keep pointing your finger at Bridgeport. This guy is worse than the common thief, not only did he steal when he should have been upholding the laws, but he victimized the victims of crime. We know in Bridgeport that we have crime, and we are not proud of it, but Trumbull needs to stop pretending to be perfect. It makes you look worse when something happens in your town.

If he is found guilty they should throw the book at him, he is worse than a common criminal he is supposed to uphold the law and bring scum to justice, but he was scummier. I hope he goes into general population with the people he prosecuted.

Is this one of those scumbag lawyers that people on the CT Post forum were defending several months ago?
You all remember, don't you? One drove into the duckpond, another stopped for DUI. In fact, several of them a while ago.
Lovely people, upstanding citizens.

"Lawlor added that he has taken "remedial steps" designed to prevent future abuse of court accounts. "I, in conjunction with the other 12 state's attorneys and the chief state's attorney, have agreed on policies and procedures which will effectively monitor the handling of restitution money for victims," Lawlor wrote."

how is it that noone ever seems to be doing periodic audits to prevent these thing from happening in the first place. 200 counts of forgery, etc. probably means this was going on for some time, if not years. is anyone checking to see if similar things happened in other judicial districts? these supposedly intelligent lawyers and state officials continue to make us the victims of their stupdity.

Kinda comical that he has gone from being a lawyer to being a used car salesman. Would you buy a car from this man?

And how much you wanna bet he will go through "rehabilitation", petition to get his law license back, and go back into practice a few years down the road?

I wouldn't buy candy from this thief. Here this so-called prosecutor was passing judgment and sending people to jail. Just goes to show you how the real criminals are getting away with crimes.

Mary Galvin was busy preserving and enhancing her legacy so she could embellish and command respect from the young minds of potential prosecutors as they are trained at her mercy in her new position as a leader of justice. Why don't we look at her personal issues and history?

I have known Mark personaly for many years. He is an upstanding individual that unfortunatly made an awful error in judgement. In this matter, he has humbled himself to admiting to his addiction and the other charges that have now been filed against him.
He has made restitution and has cooperated fully in this investigation. There is a lot to be said for that.
I ask this....why has it taken so long to drag this ordeal out?
The Ct Post has reported that the "investigation" took months to complete......so why does it take months to finaly issue a warrant?
Gee...I would bet that a suspect in a homicide wouldn't have his arrest warrant delayed. Even if he sat on the front steps of the State Police barracks admitting his guilt!
Sometimes you have to wonder if the prosecutors in this case are delaying it's progress just to make it worse for Mark Hurley.
Bring it forward and let it be finished!
If personal opinions within the court system are to blame here......shame on you. Do your jobs and don't play games........
Mark has been thru enough!
Yup, some system we have here.....

If you ask me Galvin is the real thief. She was working part time for the state and getting full-time pay and she was getting paid by the prosecutor's school at the same time!
