In re Helen B.

CT Appellate Division

50 Conn. App. 818; 719 A.2d 907



In a case arising out of a maternal aunt’s petition to remove father as guardian of child, the Court held, inter alia, that the trial court did not abuse its discretion in admitting evidence of father’s arrest for drug and weapons possesion. The court held that the arrests were not used as evidence of bad character, but rather as evidence that the father’s disrespect for the law reflects his failure to create a safe and stable home environment for his child.
