Ex-Cop Faces Sentencing For Fatal Cruiser Crash
MILFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A former Milford police officer faces sentencing in connection with a 2009 cruiser crash that killed two teenagers from Orange.
Thirty-seven-year-old Jason Anderson is scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday in Milford Superior Court. A jury acquitted him of manslaughter in November, but convicted him of the lesser charges of misconduct with a motor vehicle and reckless driving.
Anderson faces up to 10 years in prison.
Police say Anderson was returning from a mutual aid call in another town when his cruiser struck a car turning in front him at about 94 mph on Route 1 in Orange. Authorities say the cruiser’s emergency lights and sirens were off at the time. Milford officials fired Anderson.
The crash killed two 19-year-olds _ David Servin and Ashlie Krakowski.
