Gov. Rell Should Stand up for Julie Amero
If Gov. Rell is so willing to jump into the the business of our superior courts, why can't she speak out on a case that really matters? I'm talking about Julie Amero, the Norwich teacher who was falsely charged and convicted after she was unable to stop pornographic images from appearing on her classroom computer.
Instead of speaking out on a real injustice, Gov. Rell last week was busy demanding that the court send a convicted rapist back to court for violating his probation. The problem was, David Pollitt had not violated his probation.
We know that Julie Amero was convicted based on erroneous, and quite possibly false, testimony. Why isn't the governor saying anything? Maybe she doesn't want to admit that the schools, police and courts were all wrong.
