Can domestic violence murders be prevented?

Violence in relationships is something that happens all the time. It can be a difficult situation where the law may have trouble managing things and preventing them from getting even worse. However, there may be things Connecticut law enforcement and courts can do to protect domestic violence victims from becoming murder victims or murderers. 

Understanding Connecticut's statutory rape laws

Many people in Connecticut might generally have an understanding that statutory rape refers to sexual contact with a minor, they may not fully understand the state's laws on this matter. This is because the laws can be quite complex and there is not just one definition of what might constitute statutory rape. Learning about this is importnat for anyone who might have a relationship with someone under the age of 18.

Supreme Court rules on pretrial conferences

People who are accused of criminal offenses in Connecticut may sometimes have the opportunity to engage in plea bargains with the prosecuction team. These discussions may offer benefits to both prosecutors and defendants. For the former group, an agreement may result in faster processing of a case which reduces the load on the court system. For defendants, a plea deal may often result in a lesser charge being entered which may in turn lead to a lighter set of penalties compared to that associated with the original request.

Will recreational marijuana be legalized?

Laws regarding marijuana have been changing rapidly throughout the country. While most states, including Connecticut, have legalized marijuana for medical use, there are only a few states that have legalized recreational use. You may wonder if the state will ever legalize the drug for recreation, and you are not alone.
