Man Linked to Local Robberies Gets 20 Years

A Shelton man linked to robberies in Westport and the region last fall was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Tuesday.

James Haggerty, 46, had pled guilty to robberies in at least nine businesses from Westport and Fairfield to Seymour and Milford. He was sentenced in Milford Superior Court.

He specifically pled guilty to robbing the East Star Palace, a nail salon located on Post Road, last Oct. 10.

He used a gun and knife in several of the robberies, and told police that spree was prompted by a problem with crack cocaine and heroin.
