Getting arrested in a small town like Wilton Connecticut causes professional and personal embarrassment. After you’ve been booked, fingerprinted and photographed by the Wilton Police—no matter which crime you’re arrested for in Wilton—the Wilton Police will then release your mug shot and an arrest report summary to local online news websites like the Wilton Bulletin.
So it is possible to get your Wilton Connecticut arrest dismissed quickly?
If you’re a first time offender, then usually it is, but you’ll need to act quickly to get prepared for your first court date. Here’s some info to get started…
As any of the best Wilton Connecticut criminal lawyers and attorneys know, every single Wilton Connecticut arrest must report first to Norwalk Superior Court, located at 17 Belden Avenue in Norwalk (this is because Wilton does not have a criminal courthouse of its own).
The Wilton Police Department consists of approximately 44 sworn officers who typically make arrests in Wilton Connecticut for Disorderly Conduct, domestic violence and Wilton Connecticut DUI / DWI violations. You can follow this link to learn more about Wilton Connecticut and its arrest procedures and protocols.
As any of the top Wilton Connecticut criminal lawyers and attorneys can explain, an arrest in Wilton either occurs on-scene (such as with a Wilton arrest for DUI / DWI under CGS 14-227a), or by an arrest warrant application which follows a Wilton Police Department criminal investigation. In either case, you or a family member or a friend may need to post a bond (also called bail) to the police department to ensure your appearance in court. You will get this bond amount back at the end of your Wilton case in Norwalk Superior Court.
You can also call a local bail bondsman to put up the entire bond / bail amount in exchange for a non-refundable fee paid to the bondsman that is usually 7-10% of the total fee. These bondspeople are usually available 24/7 to take your call and help you get out of jail as quickly as possible.
Once your top Norwalk / Wilton Connecticut criminal law firm helps you get your Wilton arrest dismissed, you will need to remove your Wilton arrest reports offline and off Google searches of your name.
