Removing Your New Canaan Connecticut DUI / DWI Arrest Off the Internet

The best New Canaan Connecticut criminal lawyers and attorneys have recently seen the New Canaan Police Department go to great lengths to release your New Canaan DUI / DWI arrest report and mug shot (including your name and address) to local online media websites such as the New Canaan Advertiser, the New Canaanite, the Patch, and the New Canaan Daily Voice, causing irreparable damage to your personal and professional reputations. These companies generate much of their advertising revenue from their police blotter / arrest report pages because they are some of the sites’ most frequently visited pages. As a result, your online arrest report will climb to the first pages of internet search engines like Google and Yahoo, making it easier for your New Canaan DUI / DWI arrest to be found on the internet.

Marijuana & Prescription Drug DUI / DWI Arrests in New Canaan Connecticut

Many top New Canaan Connecticut criminal law firms are seeing an increase in DUI / DWI arrests for marijuana and prescription drugs. Should the New Canaan Police conclude that your driving is impaired while you’re under the influence of prescription drugs — even if it’s a legal prescription — you may be arrested for DUI / DWI in New Canaan under Connecticut General Statute 14-227a. Having your doctor’s permission to drive while on prescription medication is not a defense and will not get you out of a New Canaan DUI / DWI arrest. The determination as to whether you are too impaired to drive is left to the sole discretion of the New Canaan Police Department officer conducting your traffic stop. They will first administer the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs). If there is probable cause to arrest you at that point (usually decided after they try to get you to admit you recently smoked or ingested marijuana or prescription drugs), then they will arrest you and ask you to take a breath or urine test. Remember, you have the right to remain silent, so don’t admit to taking prescription drugs or marijuana to police during a New Canaan DUI / DWI traffic stop.
