Confusion surrounding drug charges is natural

Some Connecticut law enforcement officers are occasionally overzealous in the charges they enter against those suspected of drug crimes. Therefore, it is completely natural for those accused to feel somewhat bewildered when arrested — confused at a long and seemingly inappropriate list of allegations. Combine this enforcement environment with a complex set of rules governing each individual substance and a considerable number of different charges relating to drugs, and a single event leading to drug charges could quickly become an unintelligible tangle for those not accustomed to the system.

How much does a Connecticut DUI affect auto insurance rates?

A Connecticut driving under the influence conviction can make your life exponentially harder, potentially impacting everything from how you get around to whether you are able to find a job and earn a living. While the criminal repercussions associated with drinking and driving in this state are extensive, your DUI can also impact your life negatively in other ways. Attorney Joseph J. Colarusso recognizes that automotive insurance rates often rise sharply following a DUI conviction, and he has helped many people charged with drinking and driving defend themselves in the hope of avoiding such convictions.

The ways in which manslaughter differs from murder

As most Connecticut residents understand, a murder charge can arise from the killing of another person. However, this area of law can be complex, especially if the one accused of the crime insists that he or she did not mean to cause the death of the other person.

Do repeat offenders face higher sentences?

If you were facing a second or third time in the Connecticut justice system, it would be perfectly natural to be nervous about how your previous offenses and convictions might affect your current proceedings. The fact is that, if you received a conviction for a new crime, there could be a chance for enhanced penalties based on your previous record.
