Key criminal justice reform stalled?


Considering how slow the wheels of justice can turn, some might be surprised to learn that one of the parolees accused of the 2007 Cheshire home invasion/triple murders has been tried and convicted while state officials have still not implemented one of the key reforms that resulted from that tragedy.

Here’s our story about the Criminal Justice Information System, mandated in January, 2008 to improve communication between nearly one dozen Connecticut law enforcement agencies to try and avoid another Cheshire.

UPDATE: Retiring Republican Gov. M. Jodi Rell’s office did not provide a comment for the above report, so I caught up with Rell today in Fairfield.
