Q: Is it a violation of an AR in Connecticut to be arrested in a civil proceeding?
My ex is on an A.R. in CT. for 2 misdemeanors and 2 felony charges relating to cruelty to animals. He just spent a night in jail for a Capius Mittimus for child support with his 1st ex-wife. I'm waiting for a martial to pick him up on a Capias issued for contempt of court on my finalized divorce where he did nothing the judge ordered in the divorce, did not fulfill what was ordered on our first contempt of court case, and now did not show up to court for our second contempt hearing. If I notify the AR people, will they revoke him from the program?
A: A civil contempt is not a criminal arrest. It will have no effect on the A/R program and no need to notify. Civil arrests based upon non compliance with Court orders are totally separate matters from criminal arrests. Of course any criminal arrest for which probable cause is found could result in the termination of A/R or the unsuccessful completion of the program
