Former State Trooper to Serve Prison Time for Sex Assault of Elderly Woman

A former Connecticut state trooper convicted of sexually assaulting an 81-year-old woman will serve two years in prison, according to the court clerk's office.

Jeffrey LaPorto was arrested last year after the woman’s son reported the incident to police. The victim said she and LaPorto met at a hotel bar in Windsor Locks and drank for hours before going up to her hotel room in June 2014, according to police.

LaPorto pleaded no contest to one count of first-degree sexual assault and was sentenced Monday to 10 years in prison suspended after he serves two. He will then serve 10 years of probation, the court clerk said.

LaPorto served as a Connecticut State Police trooper for several years prior to his suspension in 2008 and termination in 2010, according to internal documents obtained by NBC Connecticut. He was also the subject of four internal affairs investigations.
