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 Jan. 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 -- nearly 100 miles per hour -- "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.
