Connecticut has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, including restrictions on the sale, possession and use of firearms. Violations include the unlawful firing of a weapon; carrying, buying, or using a gun without a permit; possession of a stolen firearm; carrying a firearm while under the influence of alcohol or drugs; and the unlawful sale, manufacture or transportation of guns.
Many gun crimes in the state are felonies and conviction can mean lengthy prison terms as well as hefty fines. Attorney Glenn is very familiar with state and federal gun laws and the types of evidence required to convict. He will work with investigators to gather evidence that builds a strong defense and fight to get your charges dropped or reduced, or for acquittal at trial.
These include murder, attempted murder, and kidnapping. In Connecticut, robbery is also considered a violent crime. An altercation in which someone is injured can result in an assault charge. Rape is also a violent crime that the state takes very seriously. The specific charge will depend on many factors, such as whether a weapon was used.
If you are charged with a violent crime, prosecutors will aggressively pursue the maximum penalty. But the evidence may not support the charges they are filing. There may have been mitigating circumstances. That’s why we work with experienced investigators to learn all we can about what happened. Our goal is to know the facts of the case better than prosecutors.
There are numerous types of sex crimes in Connecticut. Criminal charges can include sexual assault, statutory rape, prostitution, solicitation, child molestation, child pornography, voyeurism, and lewd conduct. There are laws against the use of the Internet to commit sex crimes. “Sexting” is also considered a crime in certain situations.
Conviction for sex crime charges can result in a prison sentence and fines. Sentences can be especially harsh if the charges involved a minor. A person convicted of a sex crime may have to register as a sex offender. In addition, there is a stigma associated with these types of charges, and your reputation can be easily ruined. That’s why we investigate to get all of the facts and work to get charges reduced or dismissed, or for a Not Guilty verdict in court.

A conviction can mean mandatory prison time or heavy fines, and will stay on your record. That’s why you need a criminal defense lawyer who is dedicated to making a positive difference in the outcome.
