Criminal Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC44324 - State v. Gerald J. (Conviction of sexual assault in the first degree and risk of injury to a child involving a relative; “After this case was argued, however, defense counsel notified this court that the defendant died on or about March 3, 2022. Because defense counsel did not request any specific disposition of this appeal as a result of the defendant’s death, we dismiss the appeal as moot, consistent with the past precedent of our Supreme Court. See State v. Graham, 337 Conn. 857, 858, 256 A.3d 151 (2021), and cases cited therein. The appeal is dismissed.”)
