Defending Against Vehicular Assault Charges
While some motor vehicle offenses, such as DUIs, are charged as misdemeanors and a felony for subsequent convictions, vehicular assault is serious enough to be charged as a felony in Connecticut. A conviction on a charge of vehicular assault could result in a lengthy license suspension or revocation, large fines and incarceration. Experienced criminal defense is critical if you have been arrested for vehicular assault.
At Paoletti & Gusmano, Attorneys at Law, we have more than 50 years of combined experience representing individuals charged with a wide range of crimes, including DUIs, vehicular assault and vehicular homicide. We will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of the alleged offense to determine what happened and whether the police version of the events is accurate.
Vehicular assault that is related to drunk driving or reckless driving can forever impact your criminal record, your reputation and your future. Call our offices in Bridgeport at 203-371-1000 for a free initial consultation and discuss your options for defense.
Challenging The Evidence
No matter how strong the evidence appears to be in a case against, an effective defense can still be prepared and presented in your favor. In negotiations with prosecutors or at trial, there are still actions that your attorney can take to improve your situation. We will look at how evidence was gathered, how any chemical tests were administered and how police officers treated you through the process.
If law enforcement officials failed to follow established procedures or to respect your constitutional rights, we will challenge that evidence so that it cannot be admitted at trial. Whether you are facing felony charges for vehicular assault, a multiple offense DUI or a related crime, we can advise you about your options.
