Bonnie Foreshaw granted clemency hearing, thanks to Andy Thibault

Bonnie Foreshaw

Bonnie Foreshaw, a woman who has been in prison far too long serving a sentence she never should have gotten, has been granted a clemency hearing in Connecticut after investigative reporting by Andy Thibault uncovered damning evidence of malpractice.

The new information was a blistering five-page memo written by Superior Court Judge Jon Blue 24 years ago when he was a public defender.

In the memo, to then Chief of Legal Services Joette Katz, Judge Blue excoriated fellow public defender Dennis O’Toole for “disturbing” and “shocking malpractice” taking “a number of forms” in the Foreshaw case.
