The Hard Target: Sex Offender Registration

The Sex Offender Registration laws are a hard target for reformers seeking to improve the criminal justice system in Connecticut. Simply put, it is a political loser to be seen as advocating on behalf of those convicted of sexual offenses, or certain offenses against minors. Correspondingly, it is easy to legislate long sentences and significant collateral consequences of conviction for these offenses.

Connecticut Estate & Gift Tax Law Update

In the final days of October, 2017, Connecticut passed legislation significantly impacting upon the Connecticut estate and gift tax exemption. Connecticut has had a flat estate and gift tax exemption of $2,000,000.00 for a number of years, which created a disparity with the Federal estate and gift tax exemption (currently $5,490,000.00 in 2017, but indexed for inflation). The amount exceeding the Connecticut exemption was subject to a tax of up to 12%.

Criminal Sentences in Connecticut

For a person who is involved in any capacity with the criminal justice system in Connecticut, it can be a confusing and disorienting experience. The way that the defendants, lawyers and prosecutors interact and discuss cases may seem like some kind of foreign language or secret code. However, there are discernible legal principles and procedures at work in these courthouses.
