A Middletown paralegal and former mayor has been charged with stealing more than $900,000 from the law firm LeFoll & LeFoll and his brother, who is an attorney.

Stephen Gionfriddo, 68, served as Middletown’s mayor in 1993. But prosecutors say he embezzled about $490,000 from ”a small law firm in Rocky Hill,” according to court documents. Charging documents do not identify the firm, but the Connecticut Law Tribune confirmed Gionfriddo worked for LeFoll & LeFoll, a father-daughter law firm that has been in business for about 50 years.
