Common defenses against DUI charges

You may think that once you are arrested on DUI charges in Pennsylvania you are all-but-guaranteed to be convicted. However, the reality is that some people have their DUI charges dismissed, or at the very at least reduced. If you choose to hire a criminal defense attorney to help you, you may be able to use one or more of the following defenses to fight the charges against you.

Student faces felony drug charges for allegedly selling marijuana

According to a recent report, a 21-year-old civil engineering student at Penn State was arrested for marijuana possession and sales at his apartment. He is facing felony charges for possession with intent to deliver and criminal use of a communication facility, as well as multiple misdemeanors.

Legislation could reduce penalties for possession of marijuana

Over the past couple of decades, thousands of people nationwide have been arrested and sentenced to jail time for marijuana possession. According to current Pennsylvania state law, possession of even a small amount of marijuana, less than 30 grams, is considered a misdemeanor, which could result in a $500 fine and up to 30 days in jail.

Senate bill may increase penalties for repeat DUI offenders

A drunk driving accident may be one of the most devastating ways to lose a child. That's why the "Pennsylvania Parents Against Impaired Driving" group is pushing for change by demanding that lawmakers pass Senate Bill 961, which would increase penalties for repeat DUI offenders. The bill was approved by the Senate in April and later this month, lawmakers will return to the Capitol and will have less than 10 session days to pass the bill.

Simple assault versus aggravated assault charges

Any time someone is accused of physically attacking another person, they may face assault charges in the state of Pennsylvania. The severity of the charges they face will depend on the circumstances surrounding the incident. Generally, an alleged assault in Pennsylvania can result in simple assault or aggravated assault charges. If you are facing assault charges, an effective criminal defense strategy can minimize your penalties or get your charges dropped entirely.
