Handling the aftermath of even a simple motor vehicle accident can often be overwhelming and a source of stress for anyone involved. Processing a more serious accident involving injuries or death will understandably be a source of stress for many victims. One of Pennsylvania's recent truck accidents resulted in significant property damage, injuries and death.
Because people plan for things such as having a baby, getting married, buying a house or vacations, they typically are well informed prior to those types of events. Unfortunately, people usually do not plan on being arrested and, therefore, may not understand everything that needs to be considered when being criminally prosecuted. One Pennsylvania man is likely using an attorney to help him understand the drunk driving charges he faces after leaving the scene of his crashed truck.
Running a business can be overwhelming and difficult. In addition, some owners may discover they were not as skilled at running a business as they may have assumed. Lack of adequate accounting and managing can result in difficulties for a business and may result in the questioning of a business's integrity. Recently, a business owner was charged with theft after failing to pay employees.
Recently, a bizarre sequence of events occurred in a Pennsylvania bar. The events led to the eventual arrest of a 53-year-old man and formal charges against him, including assault charges. He likely has a criminal defense lawyer to assist him, following his arrest and arraignment.
Miranda rights include the statement: "You have the right to remain silent." It's a statement often worth heeding as anything said to law enforcement personnel from that point forward could be offered as evidence in a criminal proceeding. Confessing to a crime without an attorney present could make an already difficult situation worse. Recently, one Pennsylvania woman allegedly confessed to drunk driving after she was arrested for an alleged hit-and-run accident.
