What are the two parts of the DUI law?

Drunk driving laws are often complex. They consider many different aspects, from the type of vehicle being driven to the age of the driver. The blood alcohol content level also plays a very important role. If you are a driver in Connecticut, it is important for you to understand the state's drunk driving laws. There are two main laws that govern this crime.

Defendant rejects plea deal

Connecticut residents who are arrested and charged with criminal offenses may have multiple ways to approach their defense. One approach to a criminal defense is to enter into a plea agreement with the prosecution. A plea agreement often includes a defendant pleading guilty to a charge that is lesser than what they may face in a trial in exchange for not having to go through the full trial process. 

Domestic violence reports in 2017

Very often, public news reports detailing allegations of domestic violence in Connecticut make it all but seem the accused person is guilty right off the bat. There is generally little discussion about the possibility that an incident either involve a person truly defending them against someone else, for example. This is just one situation that may change a person's view of a defendant if more facts were known.

Drug addiction plagues people in U.S.

Connecticut residents who read stories about people being arrested for and charged with crimes involving drugs may sometimes want to better understand how this might happen. More and more is being learned recently about the extent of a serious problem in the county involving addictions to prescription drugs, epecially opioids often used for pain relief.

Arrest made after bag reportedly left behind

Connecticut residents who hear about people being arrested might initially think some sort of investigation had been underway. While this may happen in some cases, it is not always the path that leads to a criminal charge. A person may actually end up being accused of one crime even after a previous interaction with the law that is completely unrelated.
