What penalties do Connecticut’s underage OUI offenders face?

If you are under 21 and receive a charge of operating under the influence in Connecticut, or conversely, if you have a child charged with OUI in Connecticut, you may have concerns about the possible penalties you, he or she may face if convicted. Authorities do not have to prove that you have a particular amount of alcohol in your body to file such a charge against you or your underage child – instead, they simply must prove that you are under the influence enough for your driving ability to suffer.

How we aim to stop trials before they start

When a client walks into our Connecticut offices, the team supporting Joseph J. Colarusso, Attorney at Law, is focused on one thing — getting his or case resolved in the most advantageous and expedient manner available. That often means that we must start quickly, gathering information and taking full advantage of the state's robust pre-trial negotiation phase.

Understanding Connecticut arraignments

Those accused of a crime are often initially confused about the Connecticut criminal judicial process. This confusion could lead to fear, especially if one were anxious about the long-term consequences of a trial. However, it is usually advisable to act from a considered position, informed by a study of the multiple stages of criminal proceedings.

What to know about Connecticut’s ignition interlock device laws

If you are a Connecticut resident who has your driver’s license suspended because of one of several particular vehicular-related crimes, you will typically have to install what is known as an ignition interlock device on your vehicle for a given period. In addition to having to do so at your own expense, you will have to blow into the device every time you want to start your car to demonstrate your sobriety, which can prove timely, inefficient and embarrassing. Attorney Joseph J. Colarusso recognizes the considerable toll a drunk driving or other vehicular criminal conviction can have on your life, and he has helped many people facing similar circumstances defend themselves and minimize the damage done to their lives.
