Criminal Sentences in Connecticut

| Sep 22, 2018 | Uncategorized |

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.

In my most recent article, I provide some insights on the terminology and meaning behind some of the common phrases used to describe unlawful conduct in Connecticut. What is an offense? A violation? A crime? Misdemeanors and felonies? More importantly, in what ways do the definitions of these terms implicate the potential exposure a criminal defendant faces to incarceration and fines?

Find out the answers to these questions and more by learning about Sentences for Crimes in Connecticut. Of course, if you, a friend or family member have a question about a particular set of circumstances, don’t hesitate to call or email me.
