Factors that determine whether you should plea bargain

The fact that more than 90 percent of successful criminal convictions are accomplished through plea deals may sound surprising to many people in Connecticut. Why would so many people accept a plea deal rather than fight criminal charges in court? According to Findlaw, the motivations for accepting a plea deal are varied and depend greatly on the defendant's circumstances.

How ignition interlock devices work

The loss of driving privileges due to a DUI or other violation of state driving laws can feel devastating, and naturally, any Connecticut resident who has gone through the process of having a driver’s license suspended wants to resume their driving privileges as soon as possible. Fortunately, state law does provide a way for drivers who have been convicted of a DUI to prove that they can act responsibly behind the wheel, through the use of an ignition interlock device (IID).  

Can a lawyer accept a plea deal on your behalf?

According to the American Bar Association (ABA), legal commentators say that 95 percent of judicial cases are settled even before they go to trial. Many people in Connecticut will actually settle their cases through a plea agreement worked out with the assistance of their attorney. However, it is vital for anyone who is going through a court proceeding to understand that acceping a plea deal or a settlement is a choice for them to make alone. 

Maintaining impartiality during rape trial processes

If you know much about what happens during formal Connecticut rape accusations, then you are aware that emotions and persuasion have the potential to take the place of good legal logic, forensic science and diligent police work. During our practice at the law offices of Joseph J. Colarusso, Attorney At Law we have found that there are many ways in which an otherwise simple innocent act could twist and turn around in the minds of a jury.
