Gun Charges Withdrawn at Preliminary Hearing

attarney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a client who was charged with Persons Not To Possess Firearms, 18 Pa.C.S.A. 6105. Our client was involved in a highly contested custody and divorce case, and he was the defendant in a protection from abuse (PFA) case that his wife had filed against him. attarney McAllister was not involved in the custody, divorce, and PFA case; he was, however, retained after our client was charged with this criminal case.

Victim Representation at District Court

attarney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented an alleged victim in a simple assault case in Berks County District Court. Our client was a wife and mother who had called the police on her husband after getting involved in a physical altercation. Our client's husband was arrested and taken to jail to await his preliminary hearing. Our client came to us since she wanted to minimize any impact this charges would have on both her husband and her family. Our client was afraid to attend the court hearing all by herself, especially since she would have to talk with the police and members of the district attarney's office.

Client Avoids Jail Time on 1543(b) Traffic Offense

Our client was charged Driving on a DUI Suspended License under the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code, 75 Pa.C.S.A. 1543(b). Although this is technically a traffic offense, a conviction actually carries a mandatory 60-90 day jail sentence. Our client was a married father of two (2) children, and, clearly, he could not afford to spend 60-90 days in jail without a significant impact on both the emotional and financial well-being of his family. Additionally, a conviction under this section of the vehicle code would carry an additional one (1) year suspension of our client's driver's license by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
