Description

One of the most horrific crimes in Connecticut history occurred in Cheshire in July, 2007. In the wake of that tragic and deadly home invasion which resulted in the deaths of Jennifer Hawke-Petit, Hayley Petit and Michaela Petit, Governor M. Jodi Rell announced the formation and membership of the Governor’s Sentencing and Parole Review Task Force. The Task Force, jointly chaired by Judge Thomas West, Lisa Holden and Attorney Mary Galvin, was charged with conducting a top-to-bottom review of the procedures and processes involved in arresting, charging, sentencing and releasing those convicted of crimes in Connecticut. The Governor requested that the Task Force identify entities and processes that needed to be changed and make recommendations to her to effect such change. She stressed that ensuring the safety of its citizens is state government’s most important responsibility.
