Losing your Connecticut driver’s license can make it hard to find and maintain gainful employment, and unfortunately, you can face additional hardships for some time even after you get your license back. Joseph J. Colarusso, Attorney at Law, recognizes that many Connecticut residents must have ignition interlock devices installed on their vehicles as part of the license reinstatement process, and he has helped many clients navigate this and related hurdles associated with regaining the right to drive.
Facing a Connecticut drug charge can be a very scary thing, because it may mean you have to pay fines, serve time and otherwise take accountability for your actions. In some cases, however, you may be able to take part in drug court as an alternative to having to serve time in jail or prison. Drug courts seek to help keep drug offenders from reentering the criminal justice system by helping them kick their drug addictions while still holding them accountable for their behavior.

According to FindLaw, it is common for judges to order certain DUI offenders, particularly those who have demonstrated a severe alcohol problem, not to drink any alcohol. In the past, however, it has been difficult to enforce those orders. Monitoring for alcohol consumption required burdensome alcohol tests on a frequent basis that were inconvenient for everyone.
