Hernandez also reminded Mutlu, a native of Turkey who has resided in Connecticut for five years, that a police officer even called him and told him not to violate the orders prohibiting him from contacting his ex-wife except to discuss their children.
Because the state had such strong evidence against him that could result in a maximum sentence of 135 years years in prison (five years for each count) or a $135,000 fine, Hernandez ordered Mutlu held in lieu of a $50,000 cash court appearance bond, meaning that a bondsman cannot help him get out.
Reprising the semi-disguise he wore a year ago while kicking off a four-week distracted driver crackdown, Stamford police Sgt. Andrew Gallagher helped ticket 75 drivers Wednesday simply by standing next to a pickup truck looking vaguely like a highway worker while spotting offending drivers.
For three and one-half hours Wednesday morning Gallagher, in his floppy-brimmed surveyors hat and orange T-shirt, leaned against a yellow ladder propped up on the tailgate of a white pickup truck, radioed descriptions of cars to nearby officers waiting to pull drivers over.
All told, the officers wrote up 56 tickets for cell phone use, 18 for texting while driving, 11 red light violations for people running the light at the bottom of southbound Exit 8 at Elm Street, three driving without license tickets and one man, who was texting someone, for driving an unregistered vehicle.
At the kick-off of last year's texting while driving blitz Gallagher, posing again as a highway worker near the foot of Exit 8, issued 43 $150 tickets for hand-held electronics violations, 10 stoplight tickets and two tickets for seat belt violations at the accident-prone intersection in the space.
Later Wednesday, Gallagher, who heads up the police department's Traffic Enforcement Unit said he was not encouraged that it is still so easy to catch people misusing their phones while driving.
The effort is part of a larger campaign sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which promotes April as national distracted driving awareness month.
Standing before six new police recruits in the sunlit lobby of the government center Wednesday, Police Chief Jon Fontneau welcomed the fresh-faced group, who exuded eagerness, confidence and a can-do attitude.
Public Safety Director Ted Jankowski told them that Stamford officers put their lives on the line with courage and dignity every day, and the new recruits will be expected to do the same thing.
Mayor David Martin told the 80 or so friends and family assembled for the morning ceremony in the lobby of the Government Center that being a police officer is a dangerous job, and there will be times when they will be concerned for the safety of the six recruits.
Steven Orgera said one of the reasons he wanted to become a police officer was to follow his father Ernie Orgera's career into law enforcement.
Orgera, who is the city's Director of Operations, was a Stamford police officer for 20 years before he retired in 1990 and rose to the top of the ranks in city government.
Orgera, who has an older brother serving as a lieutenant in the Stamford Fire Department and another who works in the city's Operations Department, said he wanted to do something that mattered with his life.
Steven's mother Joyce Orgera said she was very proud of her son, whom she said had been talking about being a police officer going back to his teens.
Kelli Reynolds is originally from Milford but has lived in Stamford for five years and has been working in the police department's Central Hiring Office for a year or so helping the public hire officers for parades and road jobs as well as organizing the school crossing guard brigade.
