Stratford forced to rehire officer with seizures

Stratford has been ordered to rehire a police officer who was fired for withholding information about his medical history.

Justin LoShiavo, 33, crashed his cruiser while having a seizure in 2009.

State officials ruled LoShiavo must be hired back because the town knew about his history of seizures and two doctors cleared him to return to duty after the crash.
