Traffic stops and drug possession charges

Every day, people across the state of Connecticut and the entire country are charged with drug possession and other related offenses after being involved in minor traffic stops. Suspects often do not understand their rights in such cases, and can be unclear about guidelines regarding probable cause and other legal factors. Having a basic understanding of legal procedures and how they apply to traffic stop cases can be beneficial to anyone accused of a drug crime.

Fairfield couple accused in domestic dispute

The nature and severity of domestic disputes can be difficult for Connecticut authorities to accurately identify and address in many instances. Law enforcement officers do not always witness incidents in progress, and are often forced to base their decisions on limited testimony and physical evidence. As a result, any and all domestic violence charges filed in a case may not be entirely accurate or appropriate.

What is the difference between a misdemeanor and felony offense?

While most people may assume that misdemeanor and felony charges are associated with specific offenses, that is only partially true. Connecticut state and federal guidelines impose a number of stipulations on determining whether any given offense should be classified as a misdemeanor or felony, and the consequences associated with both types of criminal charge can depend on the circumstances of your case. That is why it is important for you to understand how misdemeanor and felony offenses are distinguished under the law.
