Jeffrey Mueller Successfully Represents WFSB-TV for Access to Cheshire Home Invasion Trial

Publisher: New Haven Register
November 18, 2011

Jeff Mueller represented Connecticut television station WFSB in a successful bid to allow media access during the sentencing of Joshua Komisarjevsky, one of two people convicted in the 2007 Cheshire home invasion killings. Videotaped testimony from Komisarjevsky's 9-year-old daughter will be played for jurors, with the girl's attorneys initially requesting that media be prohibited from the court during that time. Following the challenge from WFSB, the New Haven Register and The Hartford Courant, which all argued that the possibility of the death penalty makes full public scrutiny of the trial crucial, reporters will be in the courtroom but will only be able to see the video after it is shown in court.

Jeff was quoted in the Register and appeared on WFSB and WTNH about the case.
