Criminal Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC44317 - State v. Herman K. (“Before this court is the defendant’s appeal from the judgment of conviction, rendered following a jury trial, of assault in the first degree in violation of General Statutes § 53a-59 (a) (1) and carrying a dangerous weapon in violation of General Statutes § 53-206 (a). On appeal, the defendant claims that the trial court, Vitale, J., improperly denied the defendant’s motion for disqualification at his sentencing hearing based upon what he contends was the appearance of partiality. We disagree and affirm the judgment of the trial court.”)
