Not Guilty Verdict in Summary Harassment Case

| May 3, 2012 | Criminal Law |

Today I won a Not Guilty verdict for a client charged with the summary offense of Harassment. My client, a mental health care giver, had been accused of striking and pushing a consumer of her agency. After a finding of guilt at the District Court level we filed a summary appeal to the Court of Common Pleas for a trial de novo. 

Testimony was given by 4 Commonwealth witnesses including 2 alleged eyewitnesses. Those 2 witnesses gave, what I believe to be, vastly different accounts of the incident.
In the end, the Judge found my client Not Guilty of the charge and she was free to go.
