Trucker driver under banned road conditions facing DUI charge

A truck driver who apparently decided to continue driving despite a travel ban is now facing a DUI charge. Recent inclement weather closed some major Pennsylvania highways and the accused truck driver was stopped on I-78 by state police trooper about an after after the announced driving ban. The officer allegedly smelled marijuana in the cab of the truck and apparently found a jar containing cannabis.

When does a driver not qualify for the ARD?

Though some believe Pennsylvania is harsh towards punishing drunk drivers, the state does recognize the lifelong consequences one charge along can bring. That’s why it has the Accelerated Rehabilitive Disposition, a program which isn’t offered in any other state. This allows first-time offenders with no prior criminal convictions the chance to rehabilitate with fines and community service without having to go through tedious court proceedings. After completion, they can ask the court to expunge their record.

Drunk driving charges against Pennsylvania police officer dropped

DUI charges filed against a police officer have been dropped. The Pennsylvania police officer was charged in connection with an alleged drunk driving incident in December. It was alleged that the officer hit a used vehicle on a car lot while he was under the influence of alcohol. But a judge didn't buy it and dropped the charges at the officer's recent preliminary hearing.

Pennsylvania delivery driver facing drunk driving charge

Being charged with DUI can affect every part of a person's life, including how he or she makes a living. A 27-year-old delivery company driver will need to fight a drunk driving charge aggressively after being arrested for allegedly being under the influence of alcohol and marijuana. Police say they found an open container of alcohol in his vehicle.

2 women charged with robbery will need good criminal defense team

Being a suspect in a bank robbery is frightening and potentially life-changing. Those accused in Pennsylvania need to mount an aggressive criminal defense to fight the charges. Two women recently arrested for robbery, among other charges, will have to do just that. The 29 and 42-year-old women were arrested in connection with allegedly robbing a bank of more than $35,000 in 2018.
