Defending Drug Crimes

One of the primary way too defend against drug charges is to challenge the manner in which law enforcement seized the drugs. This can be done in several different ways. Defending Intent to Deliver cases First, you can challenge the manner and the basis for which the police stopped the accused's car or person. Second, you can challenge the police officer's decision to search an accused's car or person for illegal narcotics. And finally, you can also challenge whether the police had probable cause to arrest a defendant for either the possession or distribution of illegal narcotics.

Mistake to Age Defense in Statutory Rape/ Sex Assault charges

Statutory Sexual Assault/ Statutory Rape is a very serious Sex Crimes charge. The Sex Crime is graded as a felony of the second degree and punishable by up to 10 years in state prison. In order to be found guilty of Statutory Rape the government must prove that:

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.

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.
