Young drivers face tough DUI penalties in Connecticut

In Connecticut, drivers may face a number of penalties if they are charged with drunk driving, such as prison time, fines and the suspension of their driver's license. For those who live in Stamford, or anywhere else in Connecticut, and have had their license suspended, understanding the state's reinstatement process is essential.

How can I reinstate my Connecticut driver's license?

In Connecticut, a suspended driver's license can't be resolved in person, according to the Department of Motor Vehicles. In fact, the only way to reinstate a suspended license in the state is by mailing payments and completed documents to the DMV. Before sending any documents to the DMV, you should make sure that your driver's license has been restored by submitting your information to the state's online portal and checking the status of your driver's license. However, if your commercial driver's license was suspended, you will not be able to check if it has been restored through the DMV's portal.

Can authorities seize my firearms at a domestic violence scene?

When it comes to domestic violence and guns, laws vary from one state to another. According to the Connecticut Judicial Branch, law enforcement officials have the authority to seize your firearms at a domestic violence scene if they find that a family violence crime was committed. If you live in Stamford, or anywhere else in Connecticut, and had a firearm seized due to allegations of domestic violence, you should review your rights.

Taking a look at the penalties for sexual assault

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, sexual assault may take a number of forms, such as rape, sexual contact that isn't wanted and verbal threats. Each year, a considerable number of people are convicted of sexual assault across the country. After a conviction, people may face serious consequences which virtually destroy their life. For example, some are sentenced to prison and required to pay stiff financial penalties. When it comes to the penalties for sexual assault, or any type of crime that is sexual in nature, there are many things to take into consideration. For starters, the laws vary from one state to another and those who live in Stamford should understand how Connecticut handles sexual assault cases. Regrettably, many people have been falsely accused of sexual assault and have no idea of what to do next.
