New Britain Man Sentenced for Assaulting Relative


(New Britain, CT) - Christian M. Watson, New Britain State’s Attorney, announced today that Kenneth Bozeman has been sentenced to 15 ½ years in prison followed by 4 ½ years of special parole for the November 2020 assault of a relative.

Following a jury trial, Bozeman, of New Britain, was found guilty on June 1, 2022 of Assault in the Second Degree and entered a guilty plea to being a Persistent Serious Felony Offender. The trial, in the Superior Court of New Britain, was presided over by the Honorable Laura F. Baldini.

Bozeman’s conviction stems from an attack on a relative during an argument that was believed to be about the volume of the television. Evidence showed Bozeman produced a handgun and repeatedly struck the 39-year-old victim in the face causing serious physical injury. A 76-year-old relative inside the home at the time of the assault bravely intervened and stopped the attack.

“Mr. Bozeman’s conviction reaffirms our office’s dedication to focusing on seriously violent offenders,” said Senior Assistant State’s Attorney David Clifton, who prosecuted the case.

State’s Attorney Watson and Senior Assistant State’s Attorney Clifton wish to extend their gratitude to the New Britain Police Department for their investigative efforts and to members of the Hospital of Central Connecticut and New Britain Emergency Medical Services.
