Julie Amero Update

After being rescheduled several times since March and most recently a change in venue, Julie Amero is scheduled to be sentenced tomorrow. However, prior to sentencing, Judge Hillary Strackbein is expected to rule on a motion filed today for a new trial.

Norwich Bulletin:
"Amero’s attorney, William Dow III, based today’s motion for a new trial on “evidence discovered after the verdicts and now in possession of the state and the defense.” In light of the new evidence, Dow said the jury reached inaccurate conclusions about Amero’s alleged Web surfing."

For the sake of the peace of mind for Julie and her family, I certainly hope this can be settled soon.
