Darby Township Criminal Lawyers

While Darby Township might not have many criminal arrests to its name every year, that does not make the experience any less frightening if you happen to be one those who are charged. You may even find that such a charge brings a great deal of embarrassment given that the town only has a population of just over 4,500 residents. You might be fearful that your employment prospects will be affected and that your friends and family members will look at you differently once they find out. You could be facing possible jail time, hefty financial penalties, mandatory community service, or some other type of sentence.

Property Crimes Explained

One of the most common crimes committed in Darby Township involves property. This is comprised of many types of different activity ranging from criminal trespassing to vandalism. Do not make the mistake of thinking that these are minor crimes. Depending on the extent of the damage caused, you could be facing a felony conviction. If found guilty of such a charge, it will remain on your record for life. The fine alone will make it difficult to pay your bills. The conviction may jeopardize future employment opportunities. This is not a time to trust your case to an inexperienced lawyer or a public defender.

Every property crime is different. There will be a variety of factors that the prosecution will look at when determining what to actually charge you with. Depending on those mitigating factors, you could be looking at prison time and thousands of dollars in monetary penalties being assessed. If you are even suspected of a property related crime, go ahead and get our office involved. We will start by examining the evidence and then determine how to proceed. Will fight for your rights.

Traffic Violations

There might not be a lot of roads throughout Darby Township, but that does not mean that the area does not have its fair share of traffic citations being issued. These might not seem very serious, but they have potentially devastating consequences if you do not fight them. Do not forget that the state of Pennsylvania operates on a point system. Every time you have a traffic violation that is upheld, a certain number of points will be added to your driving record. As soon as you accumulate six points, you are looking at increased insurance premiums and the possible suspension of your license. This is on top of the fine that will be assessed. Some serious violations may even result in jail time.

You cannot afford to not fight a traffic violation. We have the experience that you need on your side to do just that. We have successfully defended clients all across Darby Township. We will work to either get the charge dismissed or the imposed penalty lessened.
