Mohegan Sun Casino Sugar Daddy Extortion Lawyer
Mohegan tribal police work closely with Connecticut law enforcement authorities to prosecute people who violate the Connecticut Penal Code while at the Mohegan Sun, including people who engage in extortion or sex crime schemes of any kind. If you have been accused of extorting someone you were previously in a “sugar daddy” relationship with, you should strongly consider seeking guidance from a Mohegan Sun Casino “sugar daddy” extortion lawyer with experience handling cases like this and with navigating the complex interactions between tribal and state police.
Defining “Sugar Daddy” Extortion as a Criminal Offense
It is not strictly illegal in Connecticut for someone to be a “sugar baby”—in other words, to solicit money or something else of value from a “sugar daddy” in exchange for being in an intimate relationship with them—since there is no direct exchange of money specifically for sexual services. What is against the Connecticut Penal Code, though, is threatening to cause any kind of harm to another person in order to compel them to provide money or personal property to the person threatening them or to a third party.
It is worth emphasizing that in the context of criminal “extortion” as defined above, “harm” does not necessarily have to entail a financial loss or physical injury. In fact, it is very common—especially in “sugar daddy” extortion claims stemming from interactions at the Mohegan Sun Casino—for extortion to be based on a threat of causing public embarrassment or damage someone’s personal and/or professional reputation by revealing private information about them, such as the fact that they are in a relationship with a “sugar baby.”
Regardless of how much money is allegedly involved, any act of Larceny committed via extortion is considered Larceny in the First Degree, which Connecticut General Statutes § 53a-122 defines as a Class B felony. This means that even a first-time offender with no prior criminal record could face up to 20 years of prison time plus up to $15,000 in fines if they are found guilty of extorting someone who previously acted as their “sugar daddy.”
Contesting Extortion Allegations Around the Mohegan Sun Casino
As any defense lawyer experienced with handling criminal charges at the Mohegan Sun Casino could confirm, allegations of “sugar daddy” extortion should be taken seriously and approached accordingly when building a defense strategy. In practice, this typically means examining every aspect of the claims made by the allegedly extorted “sugar daddy” and determining whether every core element of “extortion” as a criminal offense can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
This can be important in virtually every criminal case, but especially in situations where a “sugar daddy” believes they were at risk of suffering damage to their reputation but was never actually threatened by their “sugar baby” despite accusing them of doing so. Even if some form of Larceny did occur, establishing that it did not come about through any type of extortion can be key to mitigating possible sanctions upon conviction and protecting a defendant’s future.
