Shocked and Dismayed

I was shocked and dismayed when I read the article regarding the woman who was charged with driving under the influence, first-degree larceny of a motor vehicle, assault on an officer, failure to obey traffic signals, negligent pedestrian charges, and was released on a promise to appear in April [March 17 “DUI Charges Follow DOT Truck Stolen, Crashed in North Haven”]. I believe this happens with offenders in New York and other states/cities due to lenient, no-bail laws, but I thought Connecticut and especially the town I live in, North Haven, provided laws that protect our citizens. Apparently not!
