Springfield Detective, Conn. Coach Enter Rehab in Prostitution Arrest

Police-Arrest2

ENFIELD, Conn. (AP) — A former Fermi High School junior varsity boys’ basketball coach who resigned following his arrest in Windsor Locks in a prostitution sting has been granted accelerated rehabilitation for first offenders that could erase the charge against him.

The Journal Inquirer reports that a Springfield, Mass., detective charged in the same sting also applied for the program.

John F. Norris was granted accelerated rehabilitation in Enfield Superior Court. He must perform 50 hours of community service.

Norris’ lawyer called it a “dark moment in his life.”

The Valentine’s Day sting led to the arrest of 11, including Norris and Springfield police detective John Wadlegger. All were charged with patronizing a prostitute.

Wadlegger filed an application for the accelerated rehabilitation program on Monday. A hearing is scheduled March 31.
