HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The state’s second-highest court has granted a new trial to a former police officer involved in a high-speed cruiser crash that killed two 19-year-olds in 2009.
The state Appellate Court ruled Monday that the jury in the case of former Milford officer Jason Anderson made conflicting verdict findings and the judge’s instructions to jurors may have been misleading.
Anderson was sentenced to five years in prison in 2013 for the crash in Orange that killed David Servin and Ashlie Krakowski.
Authorities say Anderson was driving more than 90 mph without his emergency lights and siren on when Servin turned his car left in front of Anderson and the vehicles collided.
The Appellate Court overturned two convictions for misconduct with a motor vehicle, but upheld a reckless driving conviction.
