Inmate Says Dirty Cops’ Crimes|Entitle Him To New Trial

NEW HAVEN (CN) - State prisoner Solomon Barnes demands a new trial from the State of Connecticut, claiming the detectives who testified against him have pleaded guilty to running a criminal enterprise while they investigated and testified against him. He claims the jury would not have believed New Haven Dets. Jose R. Silva and Justin Kasperzyk had they known the facts, and that "Detective Kasperzyk was not arrested until after the jury returned its verdict of guilty and Detective Silva was not arrested until after the petitioner had been sentenced." See Superior Court complaint.
