Removing Your Darien Connecticut Evading Arrest from the Internet & Google

The best Darien Connecticut criminal lawyers see it all too often—how quickly online arrest reports spread through the Darien Connecticut community. Federal and state Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”) laws require police departments to make arrest report information public. This typically includes the public release of arrest report summaries, names and addresses of those arrested, and humiliating mug shot photos. Local Darien online news websites, such as the Darien Times, Darien Patch, and Darien News Online will then publish your arrest report summaries and mug shots online, often manufacturing a full news story to accompany the information provided in the police reports.

What the Darien Police and Darien online news outlets fail to appreciate is just how devastating these public reports of your arrest can be to your personal life, your career, and your ability to support your family. The top Darien Connecticut internet criminal lawyers attorneys are also acutely aware of the fact that the more visible the article is on the website, the more clicks the article will get, and the higher it will rank on Google in a search of your name.

Your Darien Evading Responsibility Arrest Will be Heard in Stamford Criminal Court

As any of the best Darien Connecticut criminal law firms will tell you, a Darien Connecticut arrest for Evading Responsibility (or any other Darien arrest) will be dealt with in Stamford Superior Court, located at 123 Hoyt Street in Stamford. That’s because Darien does not have its own criminal courthouse. So if you are facing a Darien Evading Responsibility arrest under Connecticut General Statute § 14-224, you will need an experienced Stamford or Darien Connecticut criminal lawyer to assist you—not a divorce lawyer or real estate lawyer who just dabbles in criminal law.

Deal with Your Victim of the Hit and Run / Evading Responsibility Case Immediately

It’s not unusual for victims of a Darien Connecticut Hit and Run / Evading car accident to voice their concerns to a police officer, prosecutor, or judge about their property damage or physical injuries. Perhaps, however, this alleged “victim” in your car accident was drunk driving or texting while driving, and the car accident wasn’t your fault after all. For these reasons, it’s critical that your top Darien Connecticut criminal lawyer attorney considers what evidence should be preserved by the judge—including cell phone evidence, blood evidence, hospital records and video camera surveillance evidence.

Be Ready for Your Recorded Interview with Car Insurance Claim Investigators

As with any car accident, you will also need to provide recorded testimony to auto insurance companies, who will be interested in taking a recorded statement from both you and the other driver regarding your car accident and your Darien Evading Responsibility arrest. So if you are facing a Evading Responsibility arrest in Darien, then you should have your top Darien Connecticut criminal lawyer attorney by your side during this phone or in-person interview, as everything you say to the insurance company adjuster / investigator can be used against you in your criminal case.

What Happens to My Auto Insurance after My Darien Evading Responsibility Arrest?

Depends on how your case resolves. If you plead guilty to Evading Responsibility, then your rates will certainly skyrocket. On the other hand, if you are able to get your Darien Evading Responsibility charge dropped, then auto insurance underwriters typically look much more favorably upon the disposition when renewing your policy and calculating your new annual premiums. So before pleading guilty, make sure you’ve discussed all possible defense strategies (and options other than pleading guilty) with your top Darien Connecticut criminal lawyer.
