There’s one thing we can all agree on – the millenials know how to use the internet. 

And as the best criminal lawyers at UConn, Quinnipiac and Yale know all too well, these millenials know how to scour the internet to find some very authentic Fake IDs and driver’s licenses.

The problem is that neither these Connecticut college kids—nor their parents who turned a blind eye to their kids carrying around Fake IDs in Connecticut—have any idea that merely possessing a Fake ID in your wallet is considered a felony Forgery Second Degree arrest per CGS 53a-139 at UConn, Yale, Quinnipiac or in any other Connecticut city or town.

Hard to believe, but spanking your child in certain circumstances can get you arrested for a felony in Connecticut.

Many of the best Greenwich, Wilton and Stamford Connecticut criminal lawyers and attorneys routinely see felony Connecticut Risk of Injury arrests under CGS 53-21 when parents go a little bit too far in physically disciplining their children.

I saw this sign in Fairfield Connecticut last week.

It’s part of Connecticut law enforcement’s campaign targeted for parents and nannies and babysitters who leave children unsupervised in the car.

Believe it or not, it’s a crime in Fairfield County Connecticut to leave your child unsupervised in a car—often a misdemeanor and sometimes even charged as a felony. Even worse, many of the best criminal attorneys and lawyers in Fairfield, Greenwich and Stamford Connecticut are seeing mug shots for people arrested for Unsupervised Child in Car plastered all over the internet, causing them embarrassment and headaches in their professional and personal lives.

Here’s how to start getting your case dismissed and how to get your Unsupervised Child in Car arrest off the internet and Google…

Another dick pic case walked into my office last week. Apparently it’s the new normal.

It makes so much sense when you look at it from a generational perspective. You’ve got the millenials (those born between the 80s and late 90s).   During their teenaged and college years, the millenials texted, sexted, online dated, and were much more sexually liberated than their parents. They just had much more access to sex and its participants. Their smartphones, coupled with internet hookup sites (and reruns of the Jersey Shore) accelerated the entire hookup process.

And in lieu of foreplay or “wining and dining” (expect cross eyes from any millennial if you mention either of these concepts)–a sexy Snapchat photo coupled with a 140-character flirty message was all it took to seal the deal or let them know you cared after the hookup.

Now the millenials are all grown up and are in the working world. And from what I’m seeing in my Connecticut sexual harassment cases, they are driving the Gen Xers—especially the divorce (and married) guys out of their minds!

And that’s where the dick pic problem comes in…

Over the past 3 weeks of the Bill Cosby trial, my clients and many of the top criminal lawyers in Stamford and Greenwich have asked me if I think he will be found guilty of the sexual assault of Temple University employee back in 2004. The clients don’t quite understand how the police could arrest him now…13 years later…for something the police investigated in 2005.

My answer is and has always been: No. He will walk. He will not be found guilty.

Getting arrested in a small town like Wilton Connecticut causes professional and personal embarrassment. After you’ve been booked, fingerprinted and photographed by the Wilton Police—no matter which crime you’re arrested for in Wilton—the Wilton Police will then release your mug shot and an arrest report summary to local online news websites like the Wilton Bulletin.

So it is possible to get your Wilton Connecticut arrest dismissed quickly?

If you’re a first time offender, then usually it is, but you’ll need to act quickly to get prepared for your first court date. Here’s some info to get started…

A Connecticut arrest for second degree assault with a motor vehicle may not sound as serious as assault in the first degree, but when the injuries are caused as a result of a Stamford Connecticut DUI / DWI, the penalties for this offense can expose you to up to 10 years in prison as a major felony.

That’s why your top Stamford Connecticut criminal lawyer must aggressively assess two key issues in your case: (1) the extent of injuries, and (2) whether the prosecutor can prove intoxication.

As any of the best Norwich Connecticut Mohegan Sun Casino criminal lawyers and attorneys understand, a Mohegan Sun arrest carries the same penalties and life consequences as an arrest in any Connecticut city or town. The misdemeanor or felony charge will immediately be made part of your record and will show up on any employment or finance-related background check. Your arrest can also show up on the internet—particularly online police blotter pages of the Norwich Bulletin or New London Day websites.

So if you’ve been arrested at Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun Casino, keep reading to learn how to fight your Mohegan Sun arrest and whether you can get the criminal charge dismissed quickly and cost-effectively.

We’ve seen a lot in the news lately (particularly Fox News) about how accusations of sexual harassment and having affairs by or with your boss can lead to lawsuits for sexual harassment and hostile work environment.

But what if the affair with your boss in Connecticut is consensual? Is that still considered sexual harassment? Can a Connecticut employer company still get sued?

100 percent. Here’s why…

The good ol’ days of leaving your child in the car while you run a quick errand are long gone. Too many tragic cases of baby hot car deaths and heat suffocation deaths have caused law enforcement to enforce a zero tolerance policy.

But what about when it’s not hot? Or when you just want to run into a store or your friend’s house for just a minute while your toddler is sleeping and the air conditioning is keeping your children cool and safe?

It’s still illegal—here’s why…  Continue reading
