2 Connecticut men face separate child pornography charges

Two Connecticut residents are facing child pornography charges after the Connecticut State Police Computer Crimes Unit conducted separate investigations. In the first child pornography case, a 43-year-old man has been charged with possessing child porn in addition to obscenity and promoting a minor in an obscene act. His arrest came after a lengthy investigation that lasted almost four years.

Connecticut officials charge woman with DUI after blackout

DUI charges can seem to put a person's life on hold as they deal with the legal fallout from facing criminal allegations. One recent DUI case also illustrates the importance of insisting on remaining silent once police make such allegations. A woman was arrested for DUI in Monroe, Connecticut and may have made her case more problematic by making conflicting statements to police officials.

3 in Connecticut face separate sets of domestic violence charges

Three Connecticut residents recently found themselves facing charges related to domestic violence after getting into unrelated altercations with others. The three separate incidents took place in late March, and arrests were carried out by police officials from Greenwich. Domestic violence charges can lead to potentially serious consequences, which may make it necessary for individuals to consider whether they wish to vigorously fight the charges or seek a plea deal with prosecutors.

Connecticut Roman Catholic priest pleads to drug charges

A Connecticut priest charged with federal drug charges has pleaded guilty. He was one of five charged in a federal case. The drug charges against him stem from a crystal meth drug operation. Because of his guilty plea, the prosecutors have agreed to request that charges involving six other drug sales be dropped. The minimum sentence he now faces is 10 years.

Serious charges in Connecticut can come from gun possession

Gun collecting can be a hobby for many different types of people. However, if an individual has a felony conviction in their history, they may want to find another area of interest. It is not legal for felons in most states, including Connecticut, to acquire firearms, and being found doing so may lead to serious charges. If an individual with a felony conviction is thought to be acquiring or accumulating weapons, they could potentially face more aggressive prosecution than the average citizen.
