Bonnie Foreshaw Released
Journalist Andy Thibault waves to Bonnie Foreshaw (off camera) after Foreshaw inquired, “Where’s Andy?” during a press conference at Bridebrook Park in Niantic minutes after Foreshaw was released from nearby York Correctional after serving 27 years of a 45-year sentence for the murder of Joyce Amos. Thibault was instrumental in Foreshaw being granted clemency after uncovering a memo written 24 years ago by then-public defender Jon Blue about the mishandling of Foreshaw’s legal defense. With Thibault are author Wally Lamb, a friend and supporter of Foreshaw, and Wilburt Guy a friend, supporter and former co-worker of Foreshaw.

What they’re saying about 'more COOL JUSTICE'
- Christine Palm, poet, writer & Communications Director, CT Permanent Commission on the Status of Women
“Predictably courageous reporting”
“I don’t even know how he found out about my case; I was sitting in an immigration cell waiting to find out when I was going to be deported for my post 9-11 [so called] ‘anti-American’ poetry when I heard about the article. It was during a phone conversation with my wife, it was the first time since my arrest that I could feel the hope I heard in her voice as she read it to me. Even though we hadn’t ever met, Andy wrote the article like we had been lifetime friends. The article garnered so much attention that the immigration judge I eventually faced commented on it in his closing by saying, ‘You could’ve been a little easier on us.’ Since then I have had the pleasure of knowing this tenacious, truth driven brother I proudly call my friend.”
