Fighting Your New Canaan Connecticut Arrest for Interference with a Police Officer

If you have been arrested in New Canaan Connecticut for Interfering with a Police Officer / Resisting Arrest, then you should contact a top New Canaan or Norwalk Connecticut criminal defense lawyer attorney to fully understand your defense options. As a threshold matter, you must first decide what evidence preservation motions must be filed in Norwalk Superior Court. As the best criminal law firms in New Canaan and Stamford Connecticut would advise, video surveillance evidence controlled by New Canaan police can quickly disappear or be overwritten if a criminal court judge does not order it preserved and turned over to your top Connecticut criminal lawyer. This could include New Canaan police cruiser videos, police body camera footage, any 911 call recordings, and police dispatch recordings. Some of these materials can be overwritten after 30 to 60 days, so you and your top New Canaan Connecticut criminal lawyer must act quickly. In addition, your top New Canaan criminal lawyer will be examining all of your police reports, witness statements, and any digital surveillance evidence in order to determine whether the New Canaan Connecticut police officer in your case was the perpetrator of aggressive conduct, rather than you, raising possible police brutality concerns or even a civil rights lawsuit against the New Canaan Police Department. They will closely scrutinize these materials for errors, omissions and constitutional defects. And finally, if you were simply exercising your First Amendment free speech rights, then a Motion to Dismiss your New Canaan arrest for Interference with Police may be warranted and necessary.

When Resisting Arrest / Interference Arrests are Used to Cover Up a Police Brutality Case

Recently, several high profile police brutality cases across the country have revealed that sometimes a police officer may manufacture an arrest for Interference with a Police Officer in a veiled effort to cover up shameful police misconduct. Your top Stamford / New Canaan Connecticut criminal lawyer attorney will work with you and investigate every defense avenue possible to ensure that you are advised properly. And if you did act out of line with the police, your top Connecticut criminal defense attorney can still explore several defense options that will save you from having a permanent criminal record, such as applying for a diversionary program such as Connecticut’s Pre-Trial Accelerated Rehabilitation Program. If you are granted this program, then your top New Canaan or Stamford Connecticut criminal law firm can get your case completely erased and expunged, as long as you comply with your court-ordered program conditions and stay out of trouble.
