If you are arrested for domestic violence fighting at Foxwoods you will be made to appear before a New London Judge on the following business morning. This is the first court date, or an arraignment, and it is an important one. The Judge will impose a protective order and give you a next court date. If you were arrested for non-domestic violence fighting charges at Foxwoods you too will have an arraignment. At this first court date, a Foxwoods defense lawyer can help you begin laying the foundation for a strong defense.
At Foxwoods Casino, like anywhere else, the Connecticut General Statutes prohibit you from committing criminal acts. Fighting, either verbally or physically, can lead to an array of charges including, but not limited to:
Before you ever step foot in a courthouse after an arrest, you will be issued conditions of release when you bond out. These often include no contact between you and the other party to your fight. Any Foxwoods criminal defense attorney will tell you that though you may want to reach out, even to apologize, you should NOT contact the other party if there is a “no contact” condition of release. Violating these orders is a separate and additional criminal charge that can drag your case out longer and make your defense that much harder.
