    Hiring a Lawyer for Sugar Daddy Extortion Arrests at Mohegan Sun Casino

    Any intimate relationship built around one party paying the other to participate in that relationship can be challenging under the best of circumstances, but if the person providing payment thinks they are being criminally extorted, it can become an actively dangerous one. If you are facing criminal allegations along these lines stemming from a visit to the Mohegan reservation, contacting a “sugar daddy” extortion lawyer should be your top priority.

    What Qualifies as “Extortion” Under State Law?

    Arrangements in which “sugar daddies” pay “sugar babies” to provide intimate companionship fall into a gray area of the Connecticut Penal Code. Since money is not technically being exchanged directly for sexual services, people engaging in this kind of relationship have not technically violated Connecticut’s laws prohibiting Prostitution and the Solicitation of a prostitute’s services. So, the fact that the relationship exists in the first place is generally not considered evidence of a crime.

    That said, if a “sugar baby” were to decide that they want more money—or something else of value—from their “sugar daddy” and compels them to provide it by threatening to physically harm them, damage their property and/or public reputation, or reveal private information about them, that “sugar baby” may have committed “Extortion” as it is defined under Connecticut General Statutes (C.G.S.) § 53a-119(5). Importantly, the person making the threat does not necessarily have to make good on that threat or even actually obtain anything of value through their actions to be charged with and convicted of Extortion.

    Another thing worth emphasizing is that under C.G.S. § 53a-122, wrongfully obtaining any amount of money or property from someone else via Extortion always constitutes Larceny in the First Degree, which is always a Class B felony punishable by between one and 20 years in prison and a maximum of $15,000 in fines even for a first-time offender. This is why it is so important to seek help from an experienced “sugar daddy” extortion attorney as soon as possible after being accused of this sort of act at the Mohegan Sun.

    Fighting Back Against “Sugar Daddy” Extortion Charges

    Any criminal offense allegedly committed while on Mohegan tribal land can result in an arrest by Connecticut law enforcement authorities and prosecution by the Connecticut court system since tribal police work closely with the state of Connecticut in both regards. In practice, this means fighting an Extortion allegation stemming from a visit to the Mohegan Sun is similar to fighting one stemming from something that happened inside Connecticut’s borders.

    While the best defense strategy for this kind of charge will vary from case to case, it is often helpful to focus on proving that one or more core elements of “Extortion” as a criminal offense does not fit the evidence available to the prosecution. For example, if someone receives extra money from someone else but never made any kind of threat to harm the paying person if they did not provide that money, the recipient has not committed Extortion even if the paying person later wants their money back.
