Ex-Cop Jason Anderson Guilty of Motor Vehicle Misconduct

But a jury found him innocent of manslaughter charges in the deaths of two Orange teens.


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.

Mr Dangerfield, In every profession and group we say there are a few rotten apples. The police are no different. If Mr Anderson had the chance to change the events of that night I'm sure he'd wish he was going 10MPH slower. so that the crash never occurred. He may well be a good cop but one with a hot foot. What I want is JUSTICE to prevail. A jury has spoken, now the judge must do his job and determine the sentence that is proper. I am never one to rush to judgment. I want to see the evidence presented before making my decision. I consider myself a liberal one of the oldtme Republican types from an era when the Democrats were the conservatives. My thinking is that there but for the grace of God goes I and what would I hope the law should be for me.

You are just a stalker who always pollutes the discussion by engaging in personal attacks. In terms of people's wealth---wrong. That actually is how you unfortunately think. In your world, if you have more money, you are automatically wrong. Cops are part of the 2% -- look at their lifetime compensation---. They are upper earners. Its just that you confuse the democrats support of unions as being not for the weatlthy. Hey-you posted at 138 in the morning. I thought you told me that signaled something?

milford, ridgefield, darien no matter what interests me to comment, you are right there--- total weirdo . And the problem is, you never ever make a dent. Youve never made a single point worth considering. You lie about your military record (total coward) . Etc.

That may be true alicia but it wasnt your job to determine who had more fault. The state police had concluded that speed caused the accident, that's why they charged anderson. Keefe confused you by making intervening cause an interogatory, then some of you thought that was contributing factors. It seems finally you figured it out.
