Legal Answers
12 Questions Answered

Q. I have had fraud committed against me
A: Contact your local police department property crimes unit
Q. therapist seduced me. Who can help me.
A: What do you mean by seduced you? This could involve criminal activity if it involved sexual activity. You should contact an attorney immediately as you have recourse for a civil action against this therapist and possibly a criminal action against the therapist as well depending on the facts.
Q. Arrested 2009 misdemeanor. Case destroyed per Superior Courts Records
A: The answer depends on what "destroyed" means. If your case was dismissed or nolled and then later "destroyed" then pursuant to Connecticut's erasure statute you are deemed to have never been arrested. Without more specific details it is impossible to give a more precise answer
Q. Can i keep my registered firearms in my home even after my gun license has been revoked? Also, what statue says this ?
A: Your question is missing a of important facts. Why not avail yourself of a free consultation with a licensed Connecticut criminal defense attorney and go over all the details of your situation so you can get the best possible outcome? It sounds to me like the best possible outcome would be if you could get your permit re-instated and them show that proof to the State's Attorney - speak to a lawyer who offers free consultations
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. Get a consultation with an experienced domestic violence defense attorney who offers free consultations
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.
