As one of his victims from 2011 (and I never got my property back), I'm wondering what it's going to take to get this guy locked up and off the streets? He's been caught 4 times -- how many times has he stolen and not been caught? His parents, who he still lives with, should throw him out so at least he won't be in Wilton anymore.

and he lives in one of those McMansions that Polito built. What, he does not get an allowance from Pops? He belongs in Reform School for five years.

He belongs in drug rehab.

Or maybe he can be a paid assistant to Brennan and the crook in the fire dept.

Sue, I'm sorry you were a victim, and I can see why you'd be angry. (I was a crime victim, too-- ifferent person/place). But the NIMBY element of "throw(ing) him out" doesn't address his problems ... it would just lead to this guy committing crimes elsewhere. His parents need to get their son into rehab and/or vocational training. Sadly, our justice system probably won't provide him with either. Given Corvese's young age, he's probably quite energetic and should be sentenced to many hours of community service, not locked up. In lieu of jail time, how about tapping his vitality to get rid of invasive plants, pick up trash at cul-de-sacs and along the Norwalk River, educate him about how to improve/maintain paths at open spaces, train him to provide painting or janitorial services, or serve on roadcrews? Of course, he would have to be closely supervised, and if his parents are still willing to put a roof over his head, maybe nighttime house arrest and an ankle bracelet are the answers. Think of how much potential labor is just wasted away in jails instead of accomplishing projects that could help reduce our budgets and deficits. Yes, violent offenders and pedophiles should stay "behind bars." We as taxpayers are paying to provide convicts with meals, clothing, TV and medical help, items which so many among us are struggling to afford. With Taser technology, it should be more reasonable to keep convicted workers on job sites where they belong.

Cliff is that really helpful ?? I would expect EMR to be his normal winey self and bad mouth our town and town leaders, but don't join his club. And by the by ... the Polito Family builds wonderful aesthetically pleasing homes for familys, hires local subcontractors and is a boon to the tax starved coffers of this great Town. They are a reputable thriving business in Wilton. Perhaps a simple thank you rather than your snarky comment is more appropriate.

How about letting him cool his heels in jail for 6 months before shipping him off to drug rehab and then letting him back into the world with 5 years of parole and 5 year mandatory suspended sentence lurking over him as a reminder not to F it up.

It would be helpful to resolve the firefighter's status. It would be helpful to stop repeat offender's with appropriate justice/treatment. It comes down to management expertise. And yes, Polito builds some of the finest homes in Wilton and they are honest in the process. I know firsthand..

Really?? Who's whining? You must be related to the do nothings who enjoy wasting taxpayer money on admitted thieves of little old ladies money. The kid's a addicted crook and he should be locked up. Polito or no Polito.
