BRIDGEPORT - The state Supreme Court is deciding whether to reinstate the conviction of a Bridgeport man charged with sexually assaulting a 25-year-old disabled woman.

Richard Fourtin was sentenced to six years in prison in 2008 after a jury convicted him of sexual assault charges.

But the state Appellate Court overturned the convictions in 2009, saying the prosecution didn't prove the woman was "physically helpless" as defined by state law.
