Attorneys asking to move drug trial out of Norwalk

NORWALK - Lawyers representing a Bridgeport woman are trying to get her drug case moved out of Norwalk.

Tanya McDowell's attorneys do not think she can get a fair trial because of prejudice in the State Attorney's office in Norwalk.

In addition to the drug charges, McDowell is also accused of using a fake address so she could send her son to a Norwalk elementary school.
