Felony cases in Connecticut can be prosecuted in both state and federal court, and depending on the allegation, we usually have a clear sense of which law enforcement and courthouse a case is likely to be handled in. Most “white collar” cases are handled in federal court, although there has been a rise in state court prosecutions in recent years.
Common Serious Felony Crimes
When a family member has been charged with a serious felony, like murder or manslaughter, things become very serious very fast. The implications of a serious felony allegation can have impact not only on the defendant, but also on the family and loved ones as you navigate the court process.
There are allegations that rise to the level of felony because of the charges that go with them. So conspiracy and accessory to crimes as charged carry with them the weight of whatever you are accused of conspiring to do.
Recently, a rise in high profile cases like gambling, perjury, and home invasion in Connecticut have caused the media to pay attention to these cases and some of those crimes have had their penalties modified.
