(Watch) Sen. Somers on NBC Connecticut: “We stand with victims.”

June 5, 2023

“We stand with victims here in the Republican Senate.

We think this is an outrage.

This is a violation of victims’ rights here in the state of Connecticut. And I can’t think of anything worse than being a mother or grandmother of a child, let’s say, that has been murdered, and not being able to go in front of the Board of Pardons and Parole, and make my case as to why someone should or should not be having their sentence commuted here in the State of Connecticut, you know, it’s really unfathomable.”
