Simple Assault & False Imprisonment Charges Dismissed

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

Attorney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a Berks County man who was charged with several misdemeanor criminal offenses, most notably Simple Assault, 18 Pa.C.S.A. 2701(a)(1), and False Imprisonment, 18 Pa.C.S.A. 2903(a). Our client was a father, hard-working member of the community, who had no prior criminal record. He was extremely distraught over the fact that these charges were filed against him, and he was very worried about how it could impact his job and ability to earn a living.

Attorney McAllister represented our client at his preliminary hearing before the local district justice. As the hearing was about to start, the Commonwealth informed the Judge that they were missing a key witness. The Commonwealth then requested that the Judge grant a “continuance” to allow more time to prepare the case. Attorney McAllister, however, argued that the entire case should be thrown based on several factors. In the end, the Judge sided with Attorney McAllister, and all charges against our client were dismissed.

Attorney McAllister is now is discussions with our client regarding the expungement process, which would enable any record of the arrest, etc., to be destroyed. By the time everything is complete, there will be no official trace of this unfortunate incident which could have had devastating affects for our client.

urprised since he was not involved in any type of Retail Theft whatsoever.  In fact, our client is employed full-time and has no need to steal from any type of store.

It turns out, our client was originally ID’ed by a store employee based off of vehicle license plate.  At the trial, Attorney McAllister was able to introduce evidence to demonstrate that our client was not involved in any retail theft.  In the end, the Judge sided with Attorney McAllister’s arguments, and our client was found “not guilty”.  In the near future, Attorney McAllister will file the paperwork to start the Expungement Process to ensure that no trace of this incidence remains on our client’s record.

Client Saved from License Suspension

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

Today Attorney Ryan W. McAllister represented a client in a summary appeal in the Berks County Court of Common Pleas.  Our client, who was initially unrepresented, was charged with speeding in excess of 28 mph.  At the time, he thought the best thing to do was to simply plead guilty, pay the fine, and move on with his life.  Unfortunately, our client failed to realize the stiff consequences for pleading guilty in this case.  Namely, an automatic 90 day suspension of his driver’s license (based on his age) and 5 points on his driving record.

Once he realized the consequences of pleading guilty, he sought counsel at Ebner, Nevins & McAllister, LLC.  Attorney McAllister file a summary appeal the same day that he met with this young man, only 2 days before the 30 day deadline to file an appeal.

At the actual hearing, Attorney McAllister was able to negotiate with the assistant district attorney and the officer to reach a better resolution.  Instead of 90 day license suspension and 5 points on his driving record, our client received NO license suspension and only 2 points on his driving record.  Additionally, assuming our receives no further citations, he will have those 2 points taken off of his driving record within 12 months.

This case truly exemplifies how a seemingly simple traffic ticket can turn into a real nightmare.  Luckily, our client sought out the services of a skilled attorney before any appeal deadlines had passed.  In the future, though, our client promised he would contact Ebner, Nevins & McAllister, LLC, first if he ever finds himself in a similar situation.
