DUI Arrest In Westport After Crash: PD

Posted by Brad Sorrentino | Sep 26, 2017 | 0 Comments

DUI resulting in a car crash can bring about serious penalties following a DUI arrest. Where there is property damage alone, a judge may consider that fact as an aggravating factor when sentencing a defendant or deciding whether to accept a plea deal worked out between the State and the accused. 
 
CGS § 53a-60d establishes a separate crime of assault in the second degree with a motor vehicle when, as a result of DUI, you cause injury to another. Second Degree Assault is a Class D felony in Connecticut. If convicted, you may face up to 5 years in prison and up to a $5,000 fine.
