Two former presidents of Connecticut banks have pleaded guilty in unrelated fraud cases, the U.S. attorney for Connecticut reported.

Peter Copozzi, 56, former president of Heritage Savings Bank in Watertown, admitted to approving six illegal loans in the early 1990s totaling $52,000 to a bank officer, the U.S. attorney said last week. The officer was also Mr. Copozzi's business partner in a commercial real estate deal. The loans eventually defaulted, and Heritage Savings lost $48,000.
