A judge issued a protective order Tuesday that prohibits Groton City police Officer Kate E. Ellis from any form of contact with the alleged victim of a domestic violence incident in North Stonington on June 14. Ellis, 31, of Gales Ferry appeared Tuesday in New London Superior Court with defense attorney Michael A. Blanchard for a brief hearing before Judge Barbara Bailey Jongbloed. Assistant State's Attorney Kevin Shay from the Division of Criminal Justice's Rocky Hill office was the prosecutor.
New London State's Attorney Michael L. Regan, who has served as the region's top prosecutor since 2006, was reappointed Friday to another eight-year term by the state Criminal Justice Commission. Regan, 62, who lives with his family in New London, oversees criminal prosecutions in the four courts in the New London Judicial District, which comprises 23 towns, cities and political subdivisions in southeastern Connecticut.
Senior Assistant State's Attorney Paul J. Narducci's co-workers in New London Superior Court say he's a great guy, though it's best to leave him alone if he has a trial. The 55-year-old city native, who has won convictions in many of the region's major crimes over the past two decades, was honored by his peers last week as the state's Prosecutor of the Year.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
