    About this Stephen Sedensky, mastermind behind the Sandy Hoax, linked to yesterday’s post about the Canadian politician:

    Prosecutor fired for filming women’s legs

    The investigation also led to the discovery of a cache of recording equipment and four boxes of often-pornographic photographs in his office, including some that Holzbach’s boss, Danbury State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky said, showed women “being bound and gagged in a manner which if done in real life would be serious criminal behavior.”

    Holzbach had been on paid administrative leave from his $129,000-per-year job since the end of April. His firing was effective as of Aug. 3.

    He does not face any criminal charges.

    The documents in the report indicate that Sedensky’s investigation was sparked by an April 17 comment from an unidentified female to his second-in-command, Supervisory Assistant State’s Attorney Warren Murray.

    The woman said Holzbach was using a pen that was capable of taking videos, and that on a number of occasions, she had seen it “pointed in compromising angles toward females who are in the courtroom.”

    The name of the woman who provided the tip, as well as those of the women who were filmed and photographed, was redacted from the report.

    His son even doesn’t know first aid (with a bleeding nose you have to incline forward, not backward):

Often there are more photos here than were in the print edition, so don’t be surprised to find some extra photos in here that you haven’t seen in The Newtown Bee.

    A Sunday chat with Danbury State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky

    Stephen Sedensky III was appointed Danbury State’s Attorney in 2007, succeeding Walter Flanagan, who retired. He is only the second person to hold the office since Danbury became a separate judicial district.

    He is the head law enforcement official in the district, which includes the city of Danbury and the towns of Bethel, Brookfield, New Fairfield, Newtown, Ridgefield, Redding and Sherman.

    Sedensky grew up in Bridgeport, the oldest of seven children, and followed his father, Stephen Jr., into the practice of law. His father, now deceased, swore Sedensky in when he became a lawyer in 1983 and again when he was appointed as Danbury State’s Attorney.

    During his career, Sedensky has developed an expertise in child sex abuse cases and helped develop and instruct national and state programs on prosecuting sex abuse offenders.

    When a serious felony does occur, one of our prosecutors and an inspector will be working on it from the beginning.

    Well, Steve, maybe you could convict yourself to 10 years in prison and 250 k fine for staging another Sandy Hoax…

      Indeed an interesting talk.

      Never heard of that Sandy Hook hoax in NJ before, info:


      4:52 p.m.: Eight members of the Atlantic Highlands rescue squad, along with two ambulances and a medical ambulance bus, arrive at the staging area, according to Tom Hayden, chief of the first aid squad.

      5 p.m.: The New York Fire Department dispatches two in-service fireboats — with a total of 10 firefighters — from Staten Island. Other local agencies begin arriving at the Sandy Hook staging area.

      6:32 p.m.: New York City fireboats end their search, FDNY spokesman Frank Dwyer said.

      About 10 p.m.: The Coast Guard suspends its operation, having searched nearly 650 nautical square miles, saying “the investigation has begun into whether or not this was a hoax.”

      Making a false distress call is a federal felony, with a maximum penalty of five to 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and reimbursement to the Coast Guard for the cost of performing the search.

    This is stellar research echoing Hoi’s work on vicsims. Bo Peep’s efforts at decoding these virtual identities, virtual events, and connecting dots of names and language is inspiring. She would be a wonderful guest on Ab’s show.
