At the end of a hard-fought, high-profile trial, a jury at Milford Superior Court has turned up mixed results in the outcome of ex-cop Jason Anderson's manslaughter case, the Connecticut Post reports.
The Jason Anderson Verdict:
- Guilty of two counts of misconduct with a motor vehicle and reckless driving.
- Not Guilty of two charges of second-degree manslaughter.
The trial, which began in mid-October, saw presentations of graphic evidence, including autopsy photos and the video of the 2009 Boston Post Road crash that killed 19-year-olds David Servin and Ashlie Krakowski of Orange. Anderon's attorney Hugh Keefe frequently contested permitting such evidence, calling it "inflammatory and highly biased."
Anderson had been accused of fault because his lights and siren had not been on and he had been traveling over 90 miles per hour down the stretch of the Boston Post Road near the West Haven line. The prosecution had put forward evidence that showed alcohol in Servin's system at the time of the crash.
According to the Connecticut Post, Anderson could face as much as 10 years in prison at his sentencing in January.
