Jason Anderson Conviction Being Appealed

Anderson was sentenced on January 16 to 10 years in prison, suspended after five served, for the deaths of two Orange teens.

 

Former Milford Police Officer Jason Anderson's attorney, Hugh F. Keefe, has filed an appeal of Anderson's conviction. Keefe has said he believes Anderson should have only received probation, the New Haven Register is reporting.

 

Former Milford Policer Officer Jason Anderson was sentenced last month to a total of 10 years in prison, 5 years for the death of David Servin and 5 years for the death of Ashlie Krakowski, each age 19 at the time of their death, with both sentences suspended after 5 years.

During Anderson's sentencing on January 16, Judge Denise Markle said that as a police officer Jason Anderson had a "responsibility of protecting the public." She said that driving at such excessive speeds down Boston Post Road on June 13, 2009, "reflected a total lack of respect."

While Keefe has said that he doesn’t want a new trial for Anderson. he is “optimistic” of winning an appeal.

He should do the time, had it been a citizen they would be going to jail whether or not they could afford Hugh Keefe. This murderer abused his badge feeling that he was entitled to travel at whatever speed he wished because he was a cop. The fact remains that 2 teenagers lost their lives because of his punk cockiness. Justice will not be served by him receiving just probation for killing 2 kids before they even had a chance at life.

Former PO Anderson is learning that as a convicted felon he still has rights under our system of justice, and that is the right to appeal. This will take time, but in the end I believe that the sentence will be upheld and he will be spending time in jail. He is just delaying when he enters jail and when he gets out. Note that now we don't have to use the word aledgedly in talking about him.
