Public Input Sought in Search for New Chief State's Attorney

Connecticut's Criminal Justice Commission is seeking public input on who will be the top state prosecutor.

The commission will hold a public forum from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford. It will immediately follow the commission's interviews for candidates for the Litchfield Judicial District state's attorney position.

Connecticut Chief State's Attorney Kevin Kane is retiring. His last day is Nov. 1.

The position is the administrative head of the Division of Criminal Justice.

Kane has held the post since 2006, making him the longest-serving chief state's attorney since the office's creation in 1973.
