Getting Your Stamford Connecticut DUI / DWI Arrest Report Off the Internet

When you are arrested in Stamford Connecticut for a DUI / DWI / OUI, the Stamford police don’t wait very long to issue press releases of your arrest to the local media, especially the Stamford Advocate, Stamford Daily Voice, Cablevision News 12, and Stamford Patch online news websites. It’s no surprise that the arrest report / police blotter pages of these websites are the most frequently visited. That’s how these websites can make good money off online advertising revenue by selling ads on these pages. However, this is devastating if you are arrested in Stamford for CGS 14-227a DUI / DWI, as your Google and online searches will quickly pick up these arrest reports and permanently tarnish your reputation. Thankfully, some of the leading Stamford Connecticut criminal law firms in this practice area are building online internet scrubbing practices to help their clients take down their Connecticut DUI / DWI arrests off the internet. With knowledge of both Connecticut criminal law, and Connecticut libel and slander law, these firms are able to get your online arrest report of your Stamford DUI / DWI removed once your case is dismissed. And then they will go after Google, Yahoo and other search engines to make sure the search footprint is likewise removed. It can be a lengthy process of legal wrangling and negotiations, but it’s certainly worth the time and cost if you can successfully clean up your online reputation after a Stamford Connecticut arrest for DUI / DWI under CGS 14-227a.

Prescription Drug DUIs / DWIs & Marijuana DUIs in Stamford Connecticut

Many of the best Connecticut DUI / DWI criminal lawyers are seeing more Stamford Connecticut DUI / DWI arrests for prescription drugs and marijuana rather than alcohol. When Stamford police believe that you are under the influence of a narcotic—even if it’s legally prescribed—you can actually get arrested under CGS 14-227a. It doesn’t matter if the doctor said you could drive while taking the legally prescribed drug or medication. All that matters is that a Stamford police officer believes—in their sole discretion and opinion—that you appear too intoxicated to drive. Even if you pass the breath test, or refuse the urine test, you can still get arrested if Stamford police believe you were driving erratically and that you failed the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (the “SFSTs”). And just because marijuana is now decriminalized in Connecticut, or even if you have a medical marijuana license, you can get arrested in Stamford Connecticut for a “Marijuana DUI / DWI” under CGS 14-227a, which is treated just like an alcohol DUI. Even worse, when you face a Stamford marijuana DUI, you should expect the Stamford Superior Court judge to order random drug testing during your case, another huge inconvenience if not properly squashed by your top Stamford Connecticut DUI / DWI criminal lawyer attorney.
