New Canaan lawyer convicted of attempted murder

July 21, 2014

STAMFORD -- In a case that took more than four years to come to trial, jurors took little more than a day to convict former White House attorney J. Michael Farren of trying to kill his wife in their New Canaan mansion.

The jury of three men and six women announced the verdict around 12:40 p.m. on the second day of deliberations. As the foreman responded "guilty" to the first charge, attempted murder, a person in the gallery said, "Oh, wow." A quick murmur went through the more than 25 people in attendance, including three of Farren's family members.
