State v. Meehan

In State v. Meehan, 260 Conn. 372, 386, 796 A.2d 1191 (2002), the defendant, then a police officer, was charged with having committed perjury after he testified to a grand jury that he had not used drugs during his time with the police department. To prove the charge of falsity, the state introduced testimony by a witness that the defendant approached him three times to buy drugs. The Court held that testimony by another police officer that he found a small plastic bag typically used to carry drugs in the bathroom immediately after the defendant left was sufficient to corroborate the other witness' testimony. State v. Meehan, supra, 260 Conn. 387.
