911 calls released after felon trespasses at judge's house

Posted: Updated:
GLASTONBURY, CT (WFSB) -  The 911 calls were released after police said a Glastonbury man showed up uninvited to the home of a superior court judge who sentenced him years before. 

Judge Curtissa Cofield called police two different times the day after Christmas. It was just before 3 p.m. and each call was less than a minute long. In the second call, it seems as thought there is uneasiness in the judge's voice about the situation. 

"I'm a Superior Court Judge. I sentenced a dentist from Glastonbury named Mark Stuart some years ago, on a case brought by Glastonbury to a number of years in jail. And he just showed up at my front door," said Judge Cofield in the 911 calls. 

According to Cofield, the man is 57-year-old Dr. Mark Stuart, a former dentist she put in prison years earlier for buying and stealing luxury cars, forging titles and changing vin numbers. 

Stuart served 5 years before being paroled in 2011. 

The first time Cofield called police she explained to them that he knocked on the door and introduced himself, saying that he was Cofield's "friend." Police told her that they were sending and officer right away. 

Cofield called back a few minutes later and said, "he's not here anymore, but that just scares me." 

Police told her they were sending three officers to her house. 

Stuart was in court earlier in the week and his attorney told the judge his client hasn't had any previous problems. The attorney also said that Stuart had no ill will toward the judge. 

Court documents indicate Stuart told investigators he wanted to work with the judge as activists to help innocent people behind bars. 

"There's no evidence he was engaging in violence, and there was no finding of tumultuous or threatening behavior," said Attorney Pat Tomasiewicz. 

Eyewitness News has reached out to the judicial branch for a comment from Cofield, but she did not have one. Stuart is back in jail for violating parole and he can't get out before meeting with the parole board. 

 Officers charged Stuart with stalking and more after he allegedly knocked on Cofield's door.
