Woman in Connecticut faces DUI charge

A 48-year-old woman from New Canaan was arrested as a result of a warrant for two car accidents that happened back in February. Connecticut authorities arrested the woman on July 2 in connection with two possible drunk-driving crashes. She is facing a DUI charge and is expected back in court on Aug. 13. She has not entered a plea and it is unknown if she has retained criminal defense counsel. 

According to police, around 2:32 p.m. the afternoon of Feb. 6, police responded to reports that a vehicle had crashed into a car near the local YMCA in New Canaan before fleeing the scene. Apparently the vehicle crashed a second time into a stone wall near a Department of Transportation garage, leaving the scene a second time. Police caught up with her and arrested her in Norwalk. 

She was charged with DUI and speeding, but was later released. Since that time, investigators in New Canaan obtained warrants for her arrest in connection with further charges for the same accidents. She now faces charges for following too closely, improper turning and evading. She has again been released, this time on $500 bond, and she will appear in court Aug. 3 to face these additional charges. 

A DUI charge alone is a serious charge, but when combined with the other charges she faces, it could spell the end of the woman's driving career. This is why Connecticut authorities are expected to present compelling evidence to support these charges. Her criminal defense attorney will review all the pertinent facts, including anything the prosecution plans to enter into evidence, in order to ensure her legal protections are safeguarded and that she is properly represented at all stages of the proceedings.
