I received a call this morning saying I needed to come back down so they could give me another court. Will I be rearrested? I refused the breathalyzer, I didn’t do a field sobriety test nor did they take blood at the hospital. I’m just not sure why I would have to go back after being released.
I don't believe that you will be getting rearrested. What has likely occurred is that you were given a court date (or court location) that will not work due to the many COVID-19 court closures. Go to the police department to get the updated paperwork (with date and court location) and do NOT...Read more »
It depends on what happens at court. If he's charged with escape, the consequences could be severe. If there's a good explanation as to why he didn't return on time, the matter could be resolved without any jail. Hard to tell. He needs to have an attorney representing him.
My friend stayed was staying at my house. He was wanted by the police but I had no idea. The cops raided my apt for him and he had a gun. I got charged with risk of injury because my daughter (7 years old) was in asleep in her room. He admitted to the police that it was his. But im afraid I can go... Read more »

I called the police last Tuesday two male and one female police officers showed up. The female took pictures of her arm which has a big bruise. The two males asked the husband if he wanted to press charges against her! He’s abusing her physically and mentally but because he’s in a wheelchair... Read more »
The public defender said that there are a number of voices in The Herd on the video and the person that's allegedly me she cannot say with certainty that is me and there's no transaction in the video what should I do
It’s difficult to properly respond without viewing the video myself. What you can do is ask your PD to ask the state how the state can prove it’s you that’s on the recording, and that it’s you that committed the offense. Perhaps they will realize how weak the recording is and drop or reduce...Read more »
I have been told that an expungement means all court documents relating to an arrest are destroyed, however I have also been told that they still exist in some form. For example in extreme circumstances the courts can find the records again. My state is Connecticut, thank you for your help.
Pursuant to Connecticut General Statutes § 54-142d (the Erasure Statute), once your charges are dismissed, then are no longer available to the public. In fact, Connecticut General Statutes §54-142e allows someone to swear under oath that they were never arrested. That being said, the court can...Read more »
