Elderly Connecticut man facing charges of sexual assault

When someone in the Fairfield County area has been arrested or charged with a sex crime it’s very important for him or her to understand the implications that are involved. Just being charged for a sex crime can be enough to affect a person’s life forever, even when they are innocent.

An elderly Connecticut man is being held on a $350,000 bond after he was arrested for a sex crime. It is not known at this time whether or not an attorney is representing the 84-year-old man. The man has been accused of sexually assaulting a young female relative over an extended number of years.

Authorities say that the man has been wanted on an arrest warrant since 2007, but he was living in Cape Verde off the coast of Africa. However, he reportedly returned to Connecticut recently and was arrested when he visited a doctor’s office upon his return. According to the victim, the man allegedly assaulted her for many years while at her home in Bridgeport, as well as on family trips to Cape Verde.

Sex crimes are always serious and anyone who has been charged with sexual assault, rape or any other sexual offense stands to lose everything if he or she is convicted. In order to avoid being convicted a person needs to have the proper representation in his or her corner. Prosecutors tend to seek the toughest penalties for sex offenders, so if a person is facing a sex crime charge he or she might want to meet with a criminal defense attorney sooner rather than later.
