The release of the 911 tapes from inside Sandy Hook Elementary School during last year's massacre is expected to occur this week.

A Connecticut state Superior Court judge has ordered the tapes to be released on Wednesday, calling a prosecutor's legal argument to block their release "flimsy."

Danbury State's Attorney Stephen Sedensky says he's considering whether to appeal the ruling.

He's fought release of the 911 tapes from the beginning to protect the families of the victims, using the legal argument that unsealing them would break a law that blocks the release of evidence in child abuse cases.
