- Q. I have been charged for 2nd degree larceny by ex employer. First time offender in CT
- A: Sounds like this should me more of a civil case than a criminal case. I suggest that you speak with an experienced criminal defense lawyer who offers free consultations to get some advice specific to your case. You don't give enough details in your question here to provide a useful legal opinion and there is no real specific question posed. Without any doubt this is a serious charge and you should retain legal counsel to represent you. Best of luck with your case
- Q. CT code Sec. 53a-96.
- A: The classification of a crime as domestic violence depends on two factors - 1. the relationship between the accused and the victim. A dating relationship would fall within the scope of the domestic violence statutes. 2. the nature of the crime is one of violence - unlawful restraint is a crime of violence. Thus in this situation the relationship between the parties and the nature of the crime charged make it a domestic violence offense.

- Q. what is the maximum punishment for a minor for second degree criminal mischief
- A: There is no "minor" or "serious" 2nd degree criminal mischief - a/k/a vandalism - the elements of the crime involve intentional damage to property in the amount greater than $250 - (there is a subsection dealing with property of utilities or mode of public transportation) - it is a class A misdemeanor which is punishable by up to a year in jail. Most commonly those without any criminal record would be advised to use a diversionary program such as accelerated rehabilitation. Often it may be possible to work out alternative resolutions which include paying restitution for the damage to the property and avoid a criminal conviction. Of course this is very fact dependent. The best course of action would be to get a free consultation with an experienced criminal defense attorney.
- Q. Is it a violation of an AR in Connecticut to be arrested in a civil proceeding?
- A: A civil contempt is not a criminal arrest. It will have no effect on the A/R program and no need to notify. Civil arrests based upon non compliance with Court orders are totally separate matters from criminal arrests. Of course any criminal arrest for which probable cause is found could result in the termination of A/R or the unsuccessful completion of the program
- Q. How much would it cost me to bring a sexual harassment/voyeurism case forth?
- A: I would contact the local police and see if they are interested in prosecuting the matter on a criminal basis first. A lot would depend on the particular facts of your individual case. If that does not work see if you can find a civil attorney to accept the case on a contingency basis. A careful review of the facts will determine if the employer shares any liability. Also, an employment attorney may be a good resource.
- Q. Good morning. Do you do or bono work for someone accused of a sex crime?
- A: Our Public Defenders carry heavy case loads and they may not have the time to get out to prison to visit your husband or give you the kind of customer service that you would expect from a private lawyer but most of them are really highly qualified in criminal law as that is all they do day in and day out. I would suggest you try have your husband work on his relationship with his Public Defender and see how that goes. I also have exceeded my pro bono capacity for this year but generally would be open to accepting any kind of case regardless of the accusation for my pro bono matters.
- Q. Larceny 2 Wrongfully charged.
- A: I think that we could use some more details to give you a useful answer. Many people are in fact totally innocent and wrongfully charged. That is why it is always a good idea to seek a free consultation with a experienced criminal defense attorney before you make any moves. I would suggest you start off with an attorney who in fact does offer a free initial consultation,
- Q. If I was convicted of dissemination of an intimate image of my ex-wife in violation of protective What would my penalty
- A: I think we would need more details about the other pending cases to give you your maximum exposure. You should consult with a criminal defense attorney to see if you qualify for a diversionary program such as the accelerated rehabilitation program or the family violence education program.
