Domestic violence is unique in that it is not considered a separate crime (or charge) but can be charged as different offenses under Pennsylvania law depending on the acts alleged. Under the Pennsylvania statute, domestic violence involves the use of intimidation, threats of violence, or actual physical violence against a family member.

Drunk driving is a serious crime in the state of Pennsylvania, and the penalties associated with DUI have grown significantly harsher over the past few decades. Many people are under the mistaken impression that a first-time DUI conviction cannot result in anything more serious than a slap on the wrist and fines.

When you are arrested, you have certain constitutional rights – most importantly, the right to remain silent under the 5th Amendment and the right to have an attorney represent you under the 6th Amendment.

There are many steps that can be taken to continue fighting for your rights even if a wrongful conviction has been entered against you and you are sentenced to a term of imprisonment.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation keeps close track of the reported violent crimes across the United States and reports the data each year. The FBI’s most recent report indicates that in 2015, there was a slight increase in all violent crimes – up four percent from 2014 – and the murder rate in the US rose substantially – by 11 percent. Statistics show that almost three-fourths of murders involved firearms.

At the top of many people’s holiday gift lists was a smart speaker such as Google Home or Amazon Echo. These speakers can recognize when their name is said (i.e. “Alexa” for the Echo) and can respond to requests, such as making to-do lists, playing music, setting alarms, streaming audio, looking up information, controlling other smart devices throughout the home, and much more. It should be no surprise that more and more people are seeking the help of a smart speaker to conduct everyday tasks at home.

After being arrested, your emotions are naturally in overdrive. It is in your best interest, however, to do whatever you can to remain as calm as possible. This will allow you to carefully navigate the arrest process and to thoughtfully make important early decisions – the most crucial of which might be to call an experienced defense attorney.

The holidays should be a time for fun and cheer with family and other loved ones. Unfortunately, many people find themselves sitting in a jail cell during the holiday season.

When you see flashing lights in your rear view mirror, you may think that the worst that can happen is that the officer will issue a citation for a traffic offense.

If you have recently been arrested for drunk or drugged driving for the first time, it is very likely that you just had one of the most traumatic and scary experiences of your life. If your arrest was a typical DUI arrest, you were questioned, pressured to provide a breath sample, handcuffed, and put into a jail cell, and given little information about what to do next other than receiving a citation telling you when you will need to appear in court.
