Danbury prosecutor Stephen Sedensky and Michelle Cruz, a former prosecutor and State Victim Advocate, have recently been talking up the need to protect Newtown survivors from sights or sounds that bring back the events of that horrifying day.

Sedensky had been working to block the release of the 911 calls from Sandy Hook Elementary School. Cruz is avidly supporting a new exception to the Freedom of Information Act for crime scene videos and photographs.

Dannel Malloy and Chief State’s Attorney Kevin Kane. It is currently being reworked by a legislative task force.
