    Default Probation for DUI question( not me)

    Uncle got 6 months jail suspended after 2 days, 18 months probation. (two DUIs, within 2 months)



    Can he carry a firearm?

    He's frequently come to our house openly carrying and did it recently(before the courts decision) I feel as intimidation to my grandfather and I want to know if I see him on our property carrying if I can call the police.

    Per CT.

    11. Can I carry a firearm?
    No probationer may possess any firearms if on probation for a felony or a misdemeanor crime of illegal possession of drugs, domestic violence involving the use or threatened use of physical force or convicted for having a deadly weapon.

    Probationers convicted of certain misdemeanors, as listed in your standard Conditions of Probation, may not possess any firearms.

    If you are subject to a Protective and/or Restraining Order or other court orders not to possess any weapons, you are expected not to own, possess or purchase any weapons or items that could be used as a weapon.

    So you need to know his conditions of probation or if he was convicted as a felony.

    In Connecticut, a DUI is usually a misdemeanor crime, especially if we're talking about a first offense. However, if you have a prior DUI conviction in the past 10 years the second or greater DUI conviction is considered a felony offense.

    You can call the police if he's intoxicated and making you uncomfortable

    That's what I looked up and wasn't sure about, because it implied to me after reading, that, that he could. He's threatened me on the phone before. He got a DUI in mass which I'm not sure shows up and I don't remember how long ago it was, just that he called me to bail him out and get his car out of impound. He's a POS whos wife kicked him out and had been sleeping in our camper in our backyard until recently when his drunken/high son came over and broke multiple windows and other damage on camper at this house.


    He's upset about things my grandfather is planning to do with the land so I want to know what I can do without making any false charges if he comes by or etc.

    Ezpanding on Noel's point: I'm pretty sure the land owner makes the rules about who can carry firearms on their land regardless of probationary state.

    If he doesn't list that location as his primary residence, your grandfather (property owner?) can tell him to either leave it off property, or get off the property with it. if he refuses, you can call the cops and it should be considered trespass.

    I'm sure one of our boys in blue will chime in but would it be worth it for you to go to the local PD to at least have something on record for your concern meaning just go down there and talk to someone about everything?

    This sounds like a LEO nightmare call. How long has he been staying in the trailer? What kind of threats? How many weapons does he have registered to him? He’s from MA? Where are the guns registered to? Who owns the land in question?

    You can always call the police. If he’s not wanted on your land and doesn’t have the right to be there then he’s trespassing. If he’s established residency (has nothing to do with mail or anything) then you’re pretty much fucked and have to evict him, which if that’s the way you need to go then do it ASAP. If it drags out to the cooler months then the courts are never going to evict a person with winter looming.

    If you call for the “unwanted person” complaint make sure you explain to them that he’s either carrying or is known to carry. Undoubtedly they’ll send more than one unit. If you want to call me later tonight and give me all the details I’ll be glad to offer advice. I’m on 4-midnight. If I don’t answer I’m busy just leave a message and I’ll call you back, same # as always.

    And the residency requirements are looser than you’d think. A person only has to be there for a very short period of time to establish residency.....there’s no listing of any sort or having mail sent requirements. Basically if a person says “I live here” then it becomes a civil matter, police cannot he involved and the courts take care of it (the eviction). Lots of scumbags know this and know how to play the game. There’s a guy in Wally that bounces house to house under the guise of “hey man I just need a place to stay for a bit and then I’ll be out of here”. He wears out his welcome, never pays a dime for rent and just about the time he knows the eviction papers are coming with a Marshall he’s got another sucker to shack up with. Then the process starts all over again.

    That's one thing I had considered. Even though I've lived there since I was a kid I don't think I have any right unless he does something towards me or my wife..aka if he threatens me again..or if I feel at all intimidated.,..but I don't know what classifies as what. Anyway, thanks for input. Though yea if any of the guys of the force here have any info I'd appreciate it. My gramps is 84 and has other things going on that I'm trying to make sure he doesn't have a heart attack from stress.


    edit: I'll PM you Darren.

    Get him drunk, shoot him with his own gun, wipe for prints, call 911 with a frantic tone in your voice... "my drunk, violent, felon, squatter uncle just accidentally shot himself with the gun that he waves around all the time!!! Please send help!"
