Client Avoids Jail Time in Traffic Case

Monday, November 25th, 2013

Attorney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a young man who was charged with 75 Pa.C.S.A. 1543(a), Driving on a Suspended License. Our client had several prior convictions under this offense, and, as a result, he was facing mandatory jail time. In this case, our client had his license suspended as a juvenile, and he had repeatedly gotten into trouble with the authorities, which resulted in additional license suspensions. This all occurred well before our client was 18 years old. Now, our client was in his twenties, and he was gainfully employed, earning money and providing for his girlfriend and her young daughter. He was still, however, paying the price for his misdeeds in his youth by not being eligible to get his license.

At the court hearing, Attorney McAllister negotiated an agreement with the police officer who had issued the ticket. By bringing to light the above information, Attorney McAllister was able to convince the officer that this was not a young man who should be in jail. Although our client still had to pay a fine, he did not have to spend any time in jail, and he avoided any further suspension of his license. Attorney McAllister is not working with out client to get him eligible to receive a license as soon as possible.

Harassment Charges Dropped Against Client

Monday, November 25th, 2013

Attorney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a woman who was charged with Harassment under the Pennsylvania Crimes Code, 18 Pa.C.S.A. 2709. Our client was facing the possibility of both jail time and a large fine if she was convicted of the harassment charge. The facts of the case involved a public dispute at a local shopping center between our client and her adult daughter. Our client was never in any trouble with the authorities prior to this offense, and she was gainfully employed for many years. In short, she was an upstanding member of the community, and she did not want to end up with a criminal record.

At the court hearing, Attorney McAllister was able to negotiate a settlement of the case whereby the charges against out client were dropped. The Judge was willing to “dismiss” the harassment charge against our client. Our client left the courtroom with no jail time, no fine, and no record of a conviction. Needless to say, she was very pleased with the outcome of the case. We will be discussing the option of “expunging” arrest record with our client in the very near future.
