    Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley on Thursday exchanged some of the strongest words yet in their continuing debate over Connecticut's response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, with the candidates accusing one another of grandstanding on issues that arose from the massacre.

Greenwich Law

I am a minor from Greenwich, CT. I do not drink. There is a party tonight where there will be drinking. Will i get prosecuted for being there if the cops show up? Please let me know!
Sometimes all kids get lumped together, right? Not fair, but it happens from time to time. DO NOT DRINK - not even a...
Please consider this scenario and let me know how you might expect a judge to rule: The owner of a property has hired an independent contractor to do some work that involves the cutting of metal fixtures. After the work was finished, two hours later, a fire that was smoldering in an enclosed space destroyed the building. Causation is clearly the contractor. However, immediately after the contractors left, the owner went to lock up and noticed a burnt or burning metal smell. Under testimony, owner states that she associated this smell with the work of cutting metal that had occured immediately prior. The workers also testified that there was a burning or burnt metal smell while the work was being done, as is normal. They testified that they smelled no odor upon leaving. *more*
Does not sound like Gross negligence or recklessness. One could reasonably expect a smell from cutting such as this...
On probation after doing 1+ years for 3 DUI's. Have since been charged with a fourth. What are the likely consequences?
Most obviously you are almost certainly looking at having your probation revoked for the original offense. You are...
I was told that my first DUI would be taken off my record after I completed the alcohol program. Am I still considered a first time offender in CT if I got a DUI in RI recently? Do i face jail time with an out of state DUI?
I know Rhode Island is not as strict as Connecticut, contact a RI attorney, you may qualify for a program in Rhode...
There is no smell of alcohol, nor any illegal contraband in plain view. The driver is simply exercising their right to not answer questions and would like to be left alone and travel without government seizure of movement.
Is this a hypothetical question or did this really happen? If it's a hypothetical, I would recommend rather that the...
I am a resident of CT and have a CT driver's licence . Got a DUI in the state of Louisiana ( first offense ever , BAC of .12 ) in 2013. Refused breathalyzer test but later accepted giving Blood sample for chemical test. Pleaded no contest => paid court fees + completed community service hours + took required classes => got "motion of termination of probation " from LA court and a letter from NOLA DMV that my license ( driving privilege in LA ) has been reinstated. My attorney in NOLA is working on expungement of the record and expects to obtain such court decision by end of Sep 2014 ( note this is expected to seal the dui records). CT DMV has learnt about the DUI from NOLA DMV through ( Interstate Driver's License Compact).
Were you court-ordered to install the IID? Has Connecticut rescinded your driving privilege or suspended your license?...
no prior DUIs so this is a first, but on probation through the state supervision unit, no longer through local level. Will they violate and if so, is there a way to avoid jail?
You should set up a free consultation with a qualified DUI Defense attorney to discuss your case.
