Felony Charges for New Canaan Woman, 46, Following Domestic Dispute


Police arrested a 46-year-old New Canaan woman Sunday following a domestic dispute.

At about 5:31 p.m. on Oct. 22, officers responded to the lobby at police headquarters regarding a dispute that had occurred between the woman and the victim earlier in the day, officials said.

Through an investigation, probable cause was established to charge the woman with risk of injury to a child and violation of a protective order, both felony offenses, as well as disorderly conduct. 

It isn’t clear what the dispute involved, whether or how the victim is related to the woman, what prompted authorities to issue a protective order, what its terms were or how the woman violated it. Police withheld details, saying it’s a domestic matter. 

Violating a standing criminal protective order is a Class C felony when it involves “threatening, harassing, assaulting, molesting, sexually assaulting or attacking a person in violation of” it, under state law.

The woman was released on $10,000 bond and scheduled to appear Monday, Oct. 23 in state Superior Court.
