HARTFORD, Conn. – Here is CTNewsJunkie’s look back at 2014, a year in which voters opted to put one governor back in office and a jury voted to convict a former governor, likely sending him back to prison for a second time.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy will be sworn in on Jan. 7, the same day former Gov. John G. Rowland will be sentenced in federal court.

John Rowland

It was a bad year for Rowland, who was convicted of federal corruption charges for a second time. Rowland left office in scandal in 2004 before serving 10 months in prison. This year, a jury found him guilty of seven felonies stemming from campaign finance conspiracies. This time the feds are seeking a sentence of 37 to 46 months.
