Trial of former CMEEC officials to begin in November

Prospective jurors in the upcoming federal corruption trial of five former Connecticut Municipal Energy Cooperative officials will be asked several case-specific questions during the jury selection process, according to court documents.

Jury selection in the case is set to run from Oct. 26 to 29 in U.S. District Court in New Haven with an anticipated trial start date of Nov. 1. The trial is expected to last through Nov. 23, according to a court document from a June 21 status conference.

In addition to typical questions asked of potential jurors during the voir dire winnowing process, including knowledge of the case, experience with law enforcement and ability to follow a judge’s instructions, individuals called to serve will be asked whether they have read or heard anything about the high-profile case.
