HARTFORD, Conn. – Lawyers for a co-conspirator of former Gov. John Rowland cited notes Monday that aid Rowland’s claim that federal prosecutors withheld evidence before convincing a jury to find him guilty of campaign corruption.
Rowland was convicted in September of working for candidate Lisa Wilson-Foley’s 2012 congressional campaign and hiding his pay from regulators through a sham contract with her husband. Wilson-Foley and her husband, Brian Foley, pleaded guilty to related charges last year.
However, a judge put sentencing hearings for both Rowland and Wilson-Foley on hold because of conflicting accounts from Wilson-Foley and the prosecution team. As a result, lawyers for all three parties have been trading legal filings in a prolonged post-conviction dispute.
