New Canaan Man Sentenced to 15 Months in Prison

Michael Nowacki, 59, was found guilty of harassment and violating a protective order after sending an email to his ex-wife.


A New Canaan man who was of harassment and violating a protective order filed by his ex-wife in 2010 was sentenced on Tuesday to 15 months in prison, according to the New Canaan News.

Michael Nowacki, 59, was charged after he sent an email to his ex-wife, which he was prohibited from doing under the protective order. He later testified that he sent the email in error. Nowacki was also sentenced to one day in jail for the harassment charge followed by five years probation, according to the New Canaan News.

Nowacki represented himself at his trial on charges and, at times, simultaneously played witness and defense by carrying on a two-way dialog and referring to himself in the third person.

Attorney Daryl Crosland told the New Canaan News that he felt Nowacki's sentence was a result of his "acrimonious" relationship with Judge Bruce Hudock.
