Firefighters Extinguish Gas Grill Fire

Westtport firefighters today extinguished a rear yard gas grill fire on Janson Drive. While stretching a hose to the flames, the 15-pound propane tank “vented,” sending flames about 10 feet from the valve connection, said Assistant Chief Larry Conklin.  The fire was quickly put out and the remaining propane vented using a fog spray from the fire hose, he said.  Conklin advised homeowners to keep propane-fueled gas grills away from the house, and, if possible, to keep the valve connection facing away from the residence.  Contributed photo

Westport Lawyer Pleads Guilty to Grand Larceny

By James Lomuscio

Westporter Stephen R. Krawitz, a New York personal injury lawyer charged with stealing more than $600,000 in settlements from more than a dozen of his firm’s clients, pleaded guilty on six counts in New York Supreme Court Wednesday, according to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.

Stephen Krawitz: to be sentenced Sept. 29. Westport Police photo

Krawitz, who was arrested at his Ludlow Road home in December (see WestportNow Dec. 12, 2014)  pleaded guilty to four counts of grand larceny in the second degree, two counts of scheme to defraud in the first degree, a spokeswoman for Vance said.

Judge Melissa Jackson promised him a sentence of four to 12 years, though Vance’s office had sought a five- to 15-year sentence, the spokeswoman said.

Krawitz, who has been held since his December arrest, is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept 29, at which time the court will also be issuing restitution judgment orders, she said. His bail had been set at $1 million. After pleading guilty, he was remanded until sentencing, according to court officials.
