Father of Sandy Hook victim faces criminal chargesPosted: Updated:
A man whose 6-year-old son was among those killed in the Sandy Hook School massacre is facing a court hearing on larceny and other charges.
Neil Heslin, who has lobbied Congress and the Connecticut legislature for increased gun control in the wake of the shooting, is scheduled to appear in Milford Superior Court Wednesday morning.
The News-Times of Danbury reports Heslin faces charges that date back to July 2011, several of which involve allegations he issued bad checks to purchase building materials for his construction company.
Heslin, who has pleaded not guilty, referred questions about the case to his attorneys, who did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
Heslin's son, Jesse Lewis, was among 26 people shot to death inside the Newtown school on Dec. 14.
