Domestic violence charges linked to deadly crash

When law enforcement decides to pursue an alleged offender in public, it is their duty to do so responsibly so that no one is placed in unnecessary danger. High-speed chases can be incredibly unpredictable and volatile, since factors like road conditions and the actions of other motorists cannot be accounted for by authorities in the midst of a pursuit. That is why responding officers in Stamford, Connecticut, and cities all around the country are specially trained on how to properly conduct a high-speed chase and when to avoid following a suspect. One individual recently died in a high-speed altercation with authorities over alleged domestic violence charges, raising concerns over whether or not pursuing the suspect was the correct course of action.

New state law passed focuses on victims' rights

People charged with domestic violence, domestic battery, sexual assault or similar crimes can sometimes face discrimination with the public focus being on protecting the victims. While defense attorneys and other legal professionals in Connecticut and beyond do not support family violence or other such actions, they also understand that sometimes criminal charges do not reflect the full circumstances and that individuals charged with such crimes deserve fair representation.

Proposed domestic violence law might violate rights

In Connecticut and states across the country, protecting crime victims is always a high priority. And while the wellbeing and rights of domestic violence survivors must be safeguarded, the rights of alleged offenders cannot be overlooked. Though, it seems that a newly proposed piece of legislation is being ushered through for approval despite the fact it may pose blatant concerns over violating the constitutional rights of potentially innocent people.

Domestic violence suspects could be forced to provide DNA

The United States Supreme Court just recently ruled on an issue that has the potential to affect everyone in the country. The union’s highest court has declared that law enforcement in the state of Connecticut, and everywhere else, have the right to take a DNA sample from anyone arrested for a serious crime like domestic violence and other offenses. And while the law did pass, the controversial measure left the justices split over the decision to prioritize practicality and technology over citizens’ Fourth Amendment right to privacy.

When allegations are made concerning family violence, it is important for investigators to look at all of the facts before filing charges. The situation involving a charge of domestic violence may not be what it appears. Sometimes the victim may actually be the aggressor and the person accused may be the victim. Therefore it is important for a thorough investigation to be conducted relating to the alleged assault before an arrest is made.
