How an arson investigation unfolds and its impact on sentencing

Arson is a crime defined as involving an individual purposefully setting fire to a property. While many think of the crime of arson as one that involves damage to a building, an individual can be charged with the crime for having maliciously set fire in the forest or to a boat. Arson is almost always prosecuted as a felony offense given its potential for causing serious bodily harm or death of its victims.

Potential penalties under Connecticut's drunk driving laws

If you decide to drive drunk in Connecticut, it's important to note that you stand the potential of being charged with driving under the influence (DUI) whether you agree to your blood alcohol content (BAC) being taken or not. This is because the state views driving as a privilege and requires drivers to agree to the Implied Consent Law. As such, any police official can take your BAC without securing your consent.

Sentences you may face if you share your prescription drugs

If you take a prescription drug for a common medical ailment, you might know someone else that takes either the same thing or another comparable drug. If you've forgotten your prescription or you've been in a situation where your illness has struck at an inopportune moment, you might have even taken your friend or family member up on their offer of one of their pills in hopes that your condition would improve.
