    Christopher’s Answer

    Your new arrest could trigger a violation hearing in Montgomery County, so try to resolve the remaining requirements of your probation. As for Philadelphia, a new conviction would never be helpful, so retain a lawyer as soon as possible.

    Christopher’s Answer

    Your cousin should contact a lawyer directly to discuss his situation. This matter involves facts that should be kept confidential. However, as a general proposition, jail time is always a possibility.

    Christopher’s Answer

    If you are facing a theft by unlawful taking charge the best preparation that I can recommend is to meet with a criminal lawyer. This is not a trivial matter and you want to be prepared.

  • I am 20, got pulled over for DUI with a .03 BAC, full time college student, can i still obtain my Physician Assistant license?

    I know I am underage, I have not been called into court or anything yet. I am just terrified about my career path now. I also wanted to know if my school will find out about this and if there is anyway to get this expunged if i am charged

    Christopher’s Answer

    Since you are underage, the implications for a DUI differ from that of adults. DUI's also have an impact on health professionals. You should consult with a lawyer soon.

  • My charges are Burglary, Crim Tres- Break into structure, Theft by unlaw taking movable prop, and Receiving stolen property.

    I have never been in trouble in my whole life, I'm 19 years old. I was wondering if you think I'm going to be doing jail time.

    Christopher’s Answer

    A lawyer would need far more information about your case to give you a half-decent answer. I can say, however, that the cahrges are serious and you need to contact a lawyer soon to start preparing for your defense of the case.

    Christopher’s Answer

    Your question is unclear. Did you already have a trial? Are the court costs from a previous trial?

    This is absolutely NOT true. I am certain that you misunderstood what your lawyer said. You MUST report your income to the trustee.
