    John Skok seemed poised to take a plea deal, accepting a year in jail for his part in a scheme that bilked a Montville woman out of her life savings, when the prosecutor brought the proceedings to a halt to accuse the defendant of being drunk in court. "It's been brought to my attention that you're under the influence," Assistant State's Attorney Lawrence Tytla said to Skok, 59, before the New London Superior Court. No word on how Tytla deduced this, but Skok (whose wife was already sentenced for the scheme) was given a breathalyzer test and it showed a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit to drive. Tytla was worried the plea would be null if Skok entered it while intoxicated, but the judge reasoned that Skok, an alcoholic, "was able to function well while legally drunk" and thus could soundly weigh his legal options while sloshed, reports the Norwich Bulletin. He was taken into custody and allowed to take the plea at the next hearing.
