Attorney Elizabeth Ebner won a not guilty verdict yesterday for a client who had been charged with violating a Protection From Abuse order in Berks County, Pennsylvania. The client was facing up to 6 months in prison if convicted of the offense. The case had been scheduled for a special date and time by a Common Pleas Judge due to the nature and circumstances of the situation. Ultimately, Attorney Ebner had her client fully exonerated following a contentions court proceeding.
In Pennsylvania alleged violations of a Protection From Abuse (PFA) order result in the filing of Indirect Criminal Contempt (ICC) charges. Most typically these violations stem from an alleged violation of the “no contact” provision of the PFA. Fortunately, those facing such allegations are entitled to their day in court.
