Danbury state's Attorney Stephen Sedensky III led the investigation into the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting. He says he will not appeal a judge's order to release 911 recordings from the December 14th shooting.

Sedensky had argued that releasing the tapes in this case could harm survivors who deserve special protection and that it would make people reluctant to call 911 for fear of having their cries for help later broadcast by news outlets.
