Man Arrested in Westport for Running Brothels Gets 5 Years

A Ukrainian citizen arrested in Westport on charges of running brothels was sentenced by a federal judge in Bridgeport today to more than five years in prison.

Senior U.S. District Judge Alan H. Nevas also ordered Aleksander Dubogryzov, 45, to forfeit more than $100,000 in cash that authorities seized during the investigation and another $200,000 from the future sale of property he owns in Ellenville, N.Y.

Dubogryzov will be subject to deportation to the Ukraine after serving his 67-month prison sentence. He lived in Brooklyn, N.Y., before his arrest in Westport in 2006. (See WestportNow Sept.. 21, 2006)

A jury convicted him last September of conspiracy to transport for immoral purposes, transporting for immoral purposes and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Congressman Christopher Shays presented Croarkin with the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star medal, both of which had been awarded to him while he was in the Pacific Theater. 

Several weeks ago, his son Tom, who lives in Fairfield with his wife and daughter, contacted Shays to see if the congressman could arrange to have the awards replaced as a special gift for his father’s 89th birthday on Monday.

With the cooperation of he Department of Army, Shays was able to secure the replacements which he presented to Croarkin in a special ceremony at Norwalk City Hall. Shays’s tight schedule did not permit a stop in Westport.

Save the Children Gets $1 Million from Gates Foundation

Westport’s Save the Children today announced a $1 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for its immediate and long-term relief and recovery efforts in cyclone-stricken Myanmar.

The grant was received within days after the cyclone hit, allowing Save the Children to quickly deliver humanitarian aid. Unofficial estimates from the United Nations report 102,000 people have died, and up to 1.9 million people have been affected since Cyclone Nargis hit the southwestern corner of Myanmar on May 5.

“Over the past three weeks, Save the Children has reached more than 208,000 children and families with life-saving items,” said Save the Children CEO and president Charles MacCormack.

“But many communities in the disaster-affected areas have yet to be reached, and more aid will be needed over the coming weeks, months and even years as families begin to piece their lives back together.”

Westport’s Playtex Sued Over Baby Bottle

An Arkansas woman is accusing Westport-based Playtex Products of using a dangerous chemical to make its plastic baby bottles.

Ashley Campbell’s federal lawsuit filed in federal court in New Haven is the latest legal challenge of the industrial chemical bisphenol A, which is used in everything from plastic water bottles to DVDs. Campbell says the chemical is linked to serious health problems.

The lawsuit seeks nationwide class-action status to represent thousands of potential plaintiffs.

Playtex spokeswoman Jacqueline Burwitz said the company does not comment on pending lawsuits. The company said in a statement that regulators in and outside the United States continue to deem the chemical safe.
