Bridgeport man charged after attempting to evade the police

Getting arrested can be a frightening experience. You may not understand what is going on or why you are being pursued by the authorities. For this reason, some people in Connecticut attempt to evade arrest. Instead of helping the situation, this usually has negative consequences for the person facing criminal charges.

Underage DWI charge for fatal accident

While many Connecticut state and federal guidelines are in place to protect the rights of child victims and defendants, some may fail to address the unique circumstances surrounding individual cases. Similarly, there are instances where authorities interpret the law in a way that can unduly impact young defendants. One young man is facing criminal charges for his alleged involvement in the death of two people, while authorities may be using his age against him.

Anti-drug trafficking efforts raise serious legal concerns

In the state of Connecticut and elsewhere, crime prevention efforts are a major priority. That's why the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) makes efforts to combat federal drug crimes by preventing them from ever taking place. Conducting campaigns in several major cities and more than 22 states around the country, the ATF orchestrates elaborate drug sting operations to catch leading suspects. Though, some of the agency's tactics force many prosecutors, judges, and criminal defense attorneys to question their legality.  

Driver and passenger both charged with drunk driving

Most Connecticut motorists may agree that the only way to be truly comfortable and confident behind the wheel of any vehicle is to have experience in the driver’s seat. It can take years for drivers to settle in and hone their skills. That’s part of the reason why so many young and/or inexperienced motorists are known for making innocent mistakes. And, unfortunately, that naivety on the part of rookie drivers also leaves them vulnerable to overzealous law enforcement in some cases. Two sisters may have learned the hard way that inconsistent behavior can lead to drunk driving charges.
