Statement from Attorney General Jepsen in Response
to Attorney’s Demand to Unseal Documents

Attorney General George Jepsen today released the following statement in response to comments made by Attorney Irving Pinsky yesterday demanding release of documents related to the investigation of the Sandy Hook tragedy:
“Attorney Pinsky clearly misunderstands the law.
“The Office of the Attorney General has no jurisdiction in this type of criminal matter. My office is in no way involved with the ongoing Sandy Hook investigation being conducted by the State’s Attorney. My office and I have no authority under the law to unseal any documents that have been sealed pursuant to a criminal investigation.
“Attorney Pinsky would be well-advised to become better familiarized with Connecticut law prior to issuing any additional demands upon my office.”
