"Jury deliberates for two days before acquittal"

By Kenneth W. Golish

A Superior Court jury acquitted a Windsor man of charges.   The essential prosecution evidence was the testimony of the complainant.  The man testified on his own behalf.

The court heard evidence over five days and counsel addresses on the sixth day.  Justice Mary Jo Nolan charged the jury on the next day and the jury deliberated until 9:35 p.m. when they were sequestered, to resume deliberations the next day at 8:00 a.m.  Verdicts of not guilty were received at 8:55 p.m.  More than one ban on publication applies to certain aspects of the case.
