The effects your BAC level may have on you

Blood alcohol content level, otherwise known as BAC, is the measuring stick that is use to determine how impaired by alcohol you might be. However, there are a lot of myths and fallacies surrounding BAC, which can make it hard for you to figure out where you stand if you ever run into DUI-related trouble.

The Fair Sentencing Act

Every year, thousands of people across the state of Connecticut and all across the country face drug charges. And while the legal consequences of such charges are generally intended to reflect the nature and severity of the particular offense, criminal defense experts and civil rights advocates alike have raised serious concerns over racial disparities that appear in some drug sentencing policies. The federal Fair Sentencing Act is one legal safeguard intended to promote equality in the sentencing of some drug offenses.

What you may face with drug related charges

Drug-related crime charges can be heavy hitters. Not only does it blot your permanent record and make it more difficult for you to find a job, but you may also find yourself facing long-term and rather extreme consequences either for a false accusation or for very low-level and non-violent offenses. You don’t want to add to that number, and we at The Law Offices of Joseph J. Colarusso would like to provide you with information that you can use to keep yourself from becoming a statistic.

What are the racial profiling guidelines in Connecticut?

Every day, Connecticut residents are forced to engage with law enforcement officers over any number of suspected violations, including minor traffic stops. And while the majority of encounters go according to textbook, some do involve incidents of racial profiling on the part of authorities against alleged suspects. Understanding your rights as a motorist and civilian in the state of Connecticut can be crucial to defending yourself against criminal allegations.
