In 2012, Pennsylvania modified its law requiring sex offenders to register with the state. That statute called the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), expanded reporting requirements significantly.

Civil forfeiture is a law enforcement tool that allows prosecutors to petition to seize private assets—including property or bank accounts—that police believe were used in the commission of a criminal offense. Such assets can even include your home. Civil forfeiture was originally designed to target drug lords and their financial empires, but because any assets seized pursuant to a civil forfeiture order can be used to pad law enforcement budgets, it has been abused in Pennsylvania for years.

We have all seen the classic Law and Order arrest: You have the right to remain silent; anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law; you have the right to an attorney, and if you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided to you. These are known as your “Miranda Rights” or “Miranda Warnings,” which must be conveyed to you when you are in police custody and before your interrogation by law enforcement. In their current form, they arise from an old United States Supreme Court case called Miranda v. Arizona, but they are actually based on the rights afforded to you by the United States Constitution, including both your Fifth and Sixth Amendment rights to an attorney.

In Pennsylvania, underage drinking is strictly prohibited, and it is even punishable by incarceration. Although such a sentence is rare, it brings to light how seriously the Commonwealth takes underage drinking offenses, especially when such offenses can lead to alcohol poisoning and death on Pennsylvania’s college campuses.

The wait can be agonizing at times, especially for those who have experienced the difficulties that a criminal record can present. Whether it’s a job, a college education, a mortgage, or a military career you are seeking, it may be necessary to work with an attorney to expunge your prior convictions before your goals can become reality.

Health care fraud charges usually arise when an individual or company defrauds a federal government healthcare program or insurer. Health care providers, including doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physical therapists, are the most common defendants in health care fraud cases.

Domestic violence is unique in that it is not considered a separate crime in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania from other assaults or crimes. However, the distinction that an act was domestic can be important for other issues, such as orders of protection, custody cases, or future employment prohibitions.
