State v. Burns

In State v. Burns, 23 Conn. App. 602, 615, 583 A.2d 1296 (1990), the Court concluded that 'no evidence was presented indicating that the evidence in this case was tampered with. The court was well within the limits of its discretion in reasonably concluding that the evidence was not tampered with, either during transportation or while at the state lab where it would be highly unlikely that "intermeddlers" would tamper with the evidence.'" State v. Barnes, 47 Conn. App. 590, 596, 706 A.2d 1000 (1998).
