Jenkintown Criminal Defense Attorneys

If you are arrested in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, time is of the essence. From the second that you are arrested, you are already being manipulated into compromising the truth and negotiating for your release.

No one wants to hear about how innocent you are and will only respond with false promises of release and leniency if they can obtain an incriminating statement. Your only hope is to remain silent and to hire an experienced Jenkintown criminal defense attorney who will speak on your behalf.

Pennsylvania’s justice system is one of the most difficult to wrestle with in the world. There are far too many laws for anyone to even comprehend them. And they process so many prisoners through the courts on a daily basis that they never have to time or want to show concern for justice.

It is only when you have an extremely proficient defense attorney that you can get any traction. A powerful defense attorney can succinctly state your defenses to make them compelling. They are well-versed in the law and looked up to as experts who shape the laws with as much weight as the judges.

When you try to litigate yourself, you don’t have the same legal background as the judges and will not be taken seriously. As a matter of principle, they don’t want to be usurped or belittled by someone of questionable reputation and character. Their lack of respect and a desire to fill prisons create the perfect storm for landing in jail for a long time when you fail to obtain private counsel in Jenkintown.

DUI Charges and Traffic Violations

As bizarre as it may seem, even traffic violations in Pennsylvania can ruin your life. If you are unable to pay the fines, you can wind up losing your driver’s license when they order a bench warrant and suspend it. They will arrest you, bring you into court, and possibly schedule further proceedings. They can hold you in debtor’s prison and charge you with contempt of court if you miss any hearings.

If you are facing a DUI, this is one of the worst traffic violations. Although alcohol is readily available and advertised with in-your-face signs and culturally acceptable, don’t get behind the wheel if there is any doubt about your sobriety. The level limit for blood alcohol concentration (BAC) in Pennsylvania is 0.08 percent. At this BAC, you can be charged even if you had only one drink.

And if you are charged, your stomach may drop to the floor when you find out that you are facing up to five years in prison for a first offense. In addition, you will likely be hammered with thousands of dollars in fines and be forced to attend an alcohol rehab program.

The sad fact is that you can even be charged with DUI if you blow under the legal limit if the police officers testify that you appeared intoxicated for any number of reasons. Simply sitting your vehicle with the keys in the ignition is also probable cause to arrest you for DUI based on the speculation that you are about to drive drunk.

When you are facing charges that are stacked-up and trumped-up into such serious crimes, you need the best Jenkintown attorney that you can find. The consequences of how this will affect you for the rest of your life are too grave to take lightly.

Misdemeanor and Felony Charges in Jenkintown

Pennsylvania has a very unique jurisprudence. You will often read about people who are charged with attempted murder and other serious violent crimes spending seven years or less behind bars in other states. In Pennsylvania, you can easily do five years in state prison on a misdemeanor charge. Some examples of misdemeanors are simple assault, terroristic threats, and shoplifting.

Felony charges are often stacked up into virtual life sentences. This makes it too risky for even innocent people to go through a trial. Unless you have a talented Jenkintown criminal defense attorney in your corner, it is hard to have faith in a positive outcome.
