I received a phone call today from the school telling me that I would hear from a police officer about my son, who is 14. A girl at school claims that he sexually harassed her. I spoke with him and he told me they kissed and he touched her butt. H...
I just had a case similar to this. You should contact local York County Council to represent your son's interest. The police will probably want to interview him and it would be beneficial to head that off with a call from his attorney to figure out the lay of the land and what their thoughts are before deciding whether or not to interview.See question
As part of my probation I am to complete a drug and alcohol evaluation and complete any recommended treatment. During this time I was employed with a company that had very strict attendance policies. I ran out of paid time off and could no longer ...
You should definitely hire a York county attorney to represent you on this matter. Many times, if you can get out in front of probation violations with the probation officer through an attorney you can significantly reduce the impact of the sentence on the probation violation. This sounds like it is potentially fixable, or at least can be mitigated significantly.See question

The DUI charge is valid even though the medication was legally prescribed to you. This is one of the hardest things to reconcile within the law - but it satisfies the requisite element for DUI needed for a conviction. The vehicle stop also appears to be fine as all the police need is probably cause that you have violated even a minor traffic offense or have suspiscion based on all the factors of DUI.
If this is your first offense anywhere, or even if it is not, depending on your situation, this may very well still be fixable and mitigateable. I would recommend hiring local York County counsel to represent you. Use their local expertise to navigate the system and set you up now for the right and best result ultimately. That is vitally important - proactivity now.See question
Involved in retail theft no more than 80$ I was taken downtown to be processed and then let go. I received my ticket in the mail And making payment arrangements. I received this letter as a civil demand to pay 150$ as I do not see the purpose as I...
Yes, this civil penalty is permitted under Pennsylvania law. I see it in almost every retail theft case that I have defended, involving one of the major retail establishments, such as Walmart . The bigger issue, which I would suggest you getting representation on, is how you are going to handle your criminal case. If you have not plead guilty yet, there is very likely a way to completely fix and potentially erase this while avoiding a conviction on your criminal record. Even though a first offense retail theft, under a specific dollar threshold, is a summary, you can have very long term and significantly detrimental effects on you based on the nature of what the charge is for having that connection. Always, always seek counsel before you act in the justice system. Especially, because with the right knowledge these things are entirely fixable. It is vitally important.See question
Intersection traffic is backed up several cars. There is no right turn lane. There is room on the berm to turn right.
Unfortunately no, this is a minor traffic violation from which the police can stop your vehicle. Obviously, as we know, if the police can stop your vehicle for even a minor legal reason (i.e. having probable cause to do so) and the dominoes for other things begin to fall from there, the scenario can become highly detrimental. If you're in a scenario where and you are facing other detriments, such as other crimes, points on your drivers license suspensions, etc..., I would definitely hire local York County counsel to represent you in order to achieve the best resultand significantly mitigate, if not completely fix, the detriments. Be proactive, seek counsel. It will pay off.See question
When the cops arrived I was sleeping on the ground outside the car in someone's driveway. The car was not running the keys were in the ignition
For that scenario alone, with no other information...no there is not enough there. If there is other independent evidence of you having driven, operated or having been in actual physical control of the movement of the vehicle then yes...what you then just described is part of the evidence, which could lead to the proper charging and eventual conviction.
I believe the bigger question is how are you ultimately going to "fix" then scenario in which you find yourself. It appears to me that there may be a way to ultimately get your case dismissed and expunged. You will need to be savvy in the way in which you handle your case. I would definitely hire local York County counsel to analyze you case in depth and get the you the best results. It is vitally important that you get started correctly right from the outset in a case such as this.See question
I am currently awaiting receiving a DUI notice in Pennsylvania but prior to the incident I had been interviewing for a new job (one in which driving is NOT a primary job function). Today I found out that I have been accepted to the position which ...
The short answer is no - definitely take the job and get working as that will actually help you get on to ARD. That said, I would caution you that getting into ARD is not a guarantee in York County. It's extremely important that you do a litany of things very proactively and properly early in your case in order to make yourself a candidate that will actually be accepted. Additionally, there are a number of pitfalls regarding deadlines and procedures, which must be done correctly in order for you to not run afoul to the guidelines in place. It sounds like you are at the beginning of your case and have not even received a DUI charges yet. Therefore, I would seek out and hire York County Counsel to represent you and get started on all the things you need to begin now, so when it comes time to get you on the ARD you've done everything appropriately and properly. That way there should be no issues with being accepted and are you definitely want to be accepted because the alternative is a conviction, criminal record, mandatory jail time, long license suspension and other penalty-type increases.See question
Record only shows JV misdemeanor was not aware that JV record would count against me thought that would be fine by now, answered a question wrong now have to go to court. What is the prognosis on this?
The possibilities could be rather severe, however if you retain counsel and get out in front of this with proper explanation, including your misunderstanding, cases like this can many times be mitigated significantly to avoid some of the possible penalties that can occur. I would highly suggest hiring local York County Counsel to represent you in the matter as soon as possible.See question

Strictly talking plea deals, the prosecutors will not reduce the charge in York County just because " they have bigger fish to fry." Now, that said, there are absolutely ways to fix this type of charge and potentially get it not only dismissed entirely, but also expunged. This will not happen just because the prosecutor doesn't care. I promise you, they very much will care. It is highly important in matters like this, especially because you are facing a felony, to be very proactive in your approach and do so early. I would highly recommend hiring local York County Counsel who will know the lay of the land and specifically what steps need to be taken in order to achieve the absolute best result at the end of your case. Regarding supervised the bail, if this is followed to the tee, with not only clean drug test but also absolutely no other violations of any kind, in York County this can benefit you from an offer perspective. Your attorney will be able to best utilize this to maximize the effect of those benefits.See question
