New Canaan Woman, 46, Charged with Violation of a Protective Order


The 46-year-old New Canaan woman charged last month with risk of injury to a child and violation of a protective order has been arrested again on a felony offense, according to police.

The Lakeview Avenue resident on Nov. 5 was arrested again following a routine traffic stop for speeding, according to a police report.

At about 10:07 p.m. that Sunday, an officer on patrol stopped the woman after clocking her in the area of Canaan Parish at more than 60 mph, the report said.

She was taken into custody and charged with speeding as well as violation of a standing criminal protective order, a felony.

According to Connecticut Judicial Branch records, the same woman had been charged by New Canaan Police with third-degree assault and disorderly conduct in September. 

It isn’t clear 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. 

She was held on $10,000 bond and scheduled to appear Nov. 6 in state Superior Court, police said.

Court records show that she has not yet pleaded and was scheduled for arraignment Nov. 14.
