Why you shouldn't speak to the police without an attorney

I think that it is safe to say that most people operate under the assumption, "if I did nothing wrong, then there is no reason for me to speak with the police without the assistance of an attorney." Frequently, however, this simply is not the wise thing to do.

Defending against Aggravated Assault Charges

If you have been charged with or you are being investigated for a Violent Crime like the crime of Aggravated Assault, it is imperative that you retain the services of an experienced Aggravated Assault Attorney immediately. Aggravated Assault is a very serious crime. In most instances, Aggravated Assault is graded as a felony of the first degree and punishable by up to 20 years in prison. Before we analyze possible defenses to the crime of Aggravated Assault, we must understand the elements that the government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt in order to obtain a conviction against the accused.

Homicide by Vehicle while Under the Influence is one of the most serious types of crimes an accused can be confronted with. Homicide while under the influence is graded as a felony of the second degree and punishable by a maximum of ten years in prison. A conviction for this crime requires that the Court impose a three year minimum mandatory prison sentence for every individual killed as a result of the Drunk Driving of the defendant.

Man accused of selling hashish-laced goods at music festival

On Aug. 11, Pennsylvania authorities reported that a 35-year-old man was accused of distributing drugs in the form of baked goods at a music festival. The authorities who intercepted the goods that included chocolate, Rice Krispies Treats and fudge, stated that they contained hashish.

Defending the Intent to Deliver (Drugs) Charge

Drug trafficking or distribution in Pennsylvania is referred to as "Possession with Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance." Possession with the Intent to Deliver narcotics is an extremely serious crime and punishable anywhere from five to twenty years in prison depending upon the type of drug, the amount and a Defendant's prior record. Controlled substances include illegal drugs and narcotics such as cocaine, heroin, marijuana, prescription pills, Molly, PCP etc. If you are being investigated for such a crime or have been charged, it is imperative that you hire an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.

DNA in Sexual Assault and Rape Cases

Sex charges such as Sexual Assault and Rape require that the government proves beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused penetrated the alleged victim against her will. Almost all of these types of crimes require that the government tries to locate corroborating evidence that the accused did in fact have some sort of sexual interaction with the alleged victim. In these cases, the government strongly urges the alleged victim to consent to a Rape Kit, so that law enforcement can try and discover the identity of the alleged sexual offender through his or her DNA.
