State v. Williams (1993)

In State v. Williams, 227 Conn. 101, 629 A.2d 402 (1993), the Court set out the test for determining the sufficiency of a reconstructed record. The court noted that "in determining whether a reconstructed record is sufficient, the trial court considers various factors, including the nature of the case, the claim of error advanced by the defendant, the availability of witnesses and exhibits from the original trial, the length of time that has passed, the length of the missing portion of the record and whether the defendant is represented by different counsel on appeal." Id., at 106.
