Q. Being charge either 53a-125 for the first time ever getting arrested what am I looking at getting with a pta from court
A: If this is your first ever arrest, you are eligible for a program called Accelerated Pretrial Rehabilitation which, if it's granted, will lead ultimately to a dismissal of the charges. The most important thing is to make sure that any restitution / money owed is paid back in full before you ask the Court to grant the program.
Q. What is the difference between grand larceny and attempted grand larceny
A: There is no "grand" larceny in Connecticut. In general, however, the penalties for Larceny (of any kind) and ATTEMPTED Larceny (of any kind) are the same. There are differences in what the state would have to prove in order for you to be found guilty of Larceny vs. Attempted Larceny, but the penalties, if guilty, are the same.
Q. What happens if someone gets charged with breach of peace for the first time and it's there first ever offence?
A: If you get accepted, the Judge may impose conditions upon you that you must adhere to / comply with in order to ultimately have your matter dismissed. If by "flashing" you mean that you are alleged to have exposed yourself, the Court may impose some sort of "sex offender counseling" for you, which can often be extremely onerous. the Court an also impose any number of other conditions (like Community Service Hours) but he or she may not give you any. Regardless, it sounds like you need to have the Court approve the program which, upon successful completion, will lead to a DISMISSAL of the charges.
Q. 19 years old and in school, under investigation, should he have an attorney? My son is accused of insighting peace?!
A: 1. He should absolutely speak to a criminal defense attorney. 2. He should absolutely NOT speak with Police - or anyone else - about the allegations until he has spoken to an attorney.
Q. One of my conditons on probation are not being around minors, the judge won’t modify to see my son because I violated..
A: The Judge is passing the buck - he or she CAN modify the conditions of your probation such that you may have contact with one specific minor, your son. Other than that, Probation has essentially the same authority as a judge to limit your freedom. Your best bet might be to have your lawyer - or hire a new one - speak with the Prosecutor and try to convince he or she to agree; then your lawyer can file a formal Motion to Modify with a decent chance of passing muster with the Judge.
Q. Where can I find a Lawyer to help me Sue my present Lawyer for Attorney- Client sexual relations?
A: The first thing I suggest is that you seek an attorney from a town far away from that in which the subject attorney practice law, as local lawyers are generally a fairly tight group and do not like going after one another. Beside that, you simply need to find firms that do civil litigation and start calling around.
Q. My friend is being verbally and physically abused by her husband who is in a wheelchair can he be arrested for abuse?
A: Yes, if the man is abusing the person physically that is an Assault, and the verbal abuse most likely equates to Disorderly Conduct, Harassment or perhaps Threatening.
