  • If an employer calls the police and files a report for embezzlement, do they come and arrest me?

    Embezzled from my employer, they are still gathering everything and I am trying to work on a payment plan with them but if they do decide to call the police what can I expect? Will they come at any time and arrest me, or do I just get something in...

    Christopher’s Answer

    If a warrant is issued for your arrest, the police can come collect you at any time. Hire an attorney to speak with the police if your employer reports you.

    Christopher’s Answer

    The statute sets the gradation, there's no real debating what's written.

  • Underage drinking: best way to get a diversionary program of community service rather than conviction and license suspension?

    Christopher’s Answer

    The best way to get a diversionary program is to hire an attorney to negotiate with the officer.

  • Can a parking lot cop at a university write me a ticket A) without seeing me, and B) if they specifically target me.

    I just parked at school and was literally there under 3 minutes. As I was parking, the campus security had passed my lot and were walking towards another. There were two or three of them when I first saw them. Then, when I came back, all three wer...

    Christopher’s Answer

    Of course they were targeting you, you had apparently parked in a spot not designated for you. Why would the officer target a car parked correctly? It doesn't matter one iota why they came back to your car, if you were parked illegally you can be ticketed. If you weren't parked illegally, I suspect your post would say something different.

  • On what grounds can I be cited for underage drinking? (Pennsylvania)

    I was cited for underage drinking last weekend. I was riding as a passenger in a friends car when we were pulled over because my friend had a missing headlight. He admitted to drinking so they gave him the field sobriety test but did not breathaly...

    Christopher’s Answer

    The officer would have to have a reason to suspect you were drinking, the breathalyzer probably gave him that. However, charging someone with a crime and supporting that in court are different things. If you are serious about fighting the charges, hire an attorney who will know how to fight the breathalyzer and protect your record in court.

    He might have gotten more, but it looks as if the judge gave him 7 and a half months.

  • Im 15 , and my bf is 22 . can he go to jail for statutory rape even if we dont have sex ? And if so , for how long ?

    Can my bf still go to jail for statutory rape in Pennsylvania even if we're not having sex ? My mom approves of our relationship so is it ok for us to still date ?

    Christopher’s Answer

    No. You can still date as long as there is no sexual contact. However, as soon as your mother no longer approves and has him arrested (which happens more frequently than you might think), your boyfriend is going to have a serious issue on his hands explaining to the court that he was dating a 15 year old and had only the most honorable, celibate intentions. You're not in legal danger, but he's playing with fire.

  • If I had a case that was dismissed due to completion of the terms will it show up on my criminal record check?

    I had a harassment charge in 2012 and I just got my criminal record background check and its not on it.

    Christopher’s Answer

    If it's not on your criminal record, then it doesn't appear to be on your record. An expungement may have been part of your program. Hire a local attorney to look into the matter fully and put in an expungment for you if he finds this is not the case.

    Christopher’s Answer

    Of course you can fight the ticket. Request a hearing date, hire counsel if you can afford it, and go to court. Let the "witnesses" explain how a non-smoker flicks a cigarette butt from their vehicle.
