DCF Misconduct

Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS), Department of Families and Children, Department of Mental Retardation (DMR), and the Department of Corrections (DOC) are ripe with taxpayer fraud, taxpayer abuse, nepotism, and retaliation.

Former DCF Worker Admits To Drugging Co-Workers

A former state Department of Children and Families worker who is serving an eight-year sentence for drugging and fondling a co-worker in 2004 pleaded guilty today to drugging three other co-workers in 2001 and 2002.

John Peloso III, 44, of Glastonbury, pleaded guilty under the Alford doctrine to three counts of second-degree assault before Judge David Gold in Superior Court in Hartford. Under the Alford doctrine, a defendant does not admit guilt, but acknowledges that the state has enough evidence to convict.

The three women in the 2001 and 2002 cases told police they became sick and passed out after taking drinks from Peloso. In one case, a woman woke up in Peloso's bed and said he told her they had consensual sex, prosecutor David Zagaja said.

The women came forward after they learned of Peloso's case from August 2004, when he drugged a fourth co-worker from DCF and fondled her. That woman testified in a trial that Peloso took photos of her while she was naked and semi-conscious.

Peloso, who was fired by DCF, is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 27 on the most recent cases.
