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... Read more »
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...Read more »
I filed a sexual harassment complaint on a coworker and I potentially have a case for voyeurism and illegal dissemination of an inappropriate photo taken without my knowledge or consent, at work. What would it cost me to bring this case to court? How often are these cases won and is it even worth... Read more »
I would contact the local police and see if they are interested in prosecuting the matter on a criminal basis first. A lot would depend on the particular facts of your individual case. If that does not work see if you can find a civil attorney to accept the case on a contingency basis. A...Read more »
I think that we could use some more details to give you a useful answer. Many people are in fact totally innocent and wrongfully charged. That is why it is always a good idea to seek a free consultation with a experienced criminal defense attorney before you make any moves. I would suggest you...Read more »
I think we would need more details about the other pending cases to give you your maximum exposure. You should consult with a criminal defense attorney to see if you qualify for a diversionary program such as the accelerated rehabilitation program or the family violence education program.
If this is your first ever arrest, you are eligible for a program called Accelerated Pretrial Rehabilitation which, if it's granted, will lead ultimately to a dismissal of the charges. The most important thing is to make sure that any restitution / money owed is paid back in full before you ask...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 »
There is no "grand" larceny in Connecticut. In general, however, the penalties for Larceny (of any kind) and ATTEMPTED Larceny (of any kind) are the same. There are differences in what the state would have to prove in order for you to be found guilty of Larceny vs. Attempted Larceny, but the...Read more »
My brother was charged with threatening in the 2nd in Connecticut. He was released on bond and had his arraignment already. They continued the protective order and told him to prove his accuser does not live there after he told the judge she does not. Currently the mother of his 2 young children is... Read more »
He has a few options. If he is the lawful owner of the residence, he can hire an attorney to begin an eviction process to lawfully remove the woman from his residence. If he is not the owner, then he should inform his landlord that the landlord needs her evicted, as he cannot enter the premises...Read more »
I was charged with a breach of peace for flashing someone in a dunkin donuts drive through. I went to court for the first hearing and they let me apply for AR(accelerated rehabilitation) if I get accepted what will I have to do or what are some things I can expect?
If you get accepted, the Judge may impose conditions upon you that you must adhere to / comply with in order to ultimately have your matter dismissed. If by "flashing" you mean that you are alleged to have exposed yourself, the Court may impose some sort of "sex offender counseling" for you, which...Read more »

I was able to see my son since day one. I violated probation and they took my approved supervisors away so I now haven’t been able to see my son for a year. My ex went through training and paid to become a supervisor again and she’s getting the run around being told to check in next month when... Read more »
The Judge is passing the buck - he or she CAN modify the conditions of your probation such that you may have contact with one specific minor, your son. Other than that, Probation has essentially the same authority as a judge to limit your freedom.
The first thing I suggest is that you seek an attorney from a town far away from that in which the subject attorney practice law, as local lawyers are generally a fairly tight group and do not like going after one another. Beside that, you simply need to find firms that do civil litigation and...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 »
