If you are facing charges of strangulation, here’s what you need to know:
Legal Definition of Strangulation in Connecticut
Connecticut General Statute § 53A-64AA states that a person can be
guilty of strangulation if they restrain another person by the neck with
deliberate intent to restrict their breathing or blood flow in order to
cause physical harm or death. Strangulation charges can also be brought
if tools or other materials are used with the same intent.
You are more likely to be found guilty of strangulation and made subject
to jail time, fines, etc. if you have faced previous strangulation charges,
even if the alleged strangulation has not resulted in death or severe
physical harm to another person in either case. However, even in cases
of repeated strangulation accusations, there are ways to minimize the
harsh legal ramifications and protect yourself against the damaging effects
of such charges.
Because strangulation is a class C felony in Connecticut, you can be fined
up to $10,000 and sentenced to a maximum of 10 years in jail.
