Attorney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a woman who was charged with four (4) different offenses, including two (2) misdemeanor offenses of terroristic threats, 18 Pa.C.S.A. 2706(a)(1), and simple assault, 18 Pa.C.S.A. 2701(a)(3). If convicted of either of these two (2) offenses, our client was facing the possibility of jail time, or, at a minimum, several years of probation. Our client absolutely denied the allegations related to these charges, and she believed the alleged victim in the case had a “personal” vendetta against her.
Therefore, attorney McAllister was prepared to a have a preliminary hearing on the matter before the Berks County District Justice. At the hearing, attorney McAllister was successful in cross-examining the alleged victim to reveal inconsistencies in her story, and he even had two (2) witnesses testify on behalf of the defendant.
After hearing the evidence in the case, the District Judge dismissed all four (4) charges against out client. Our client walked out of the courtroom without any jail time, without any probation, and without having to pay any fines and costs. She was very happy with the outcome of her case, and she was very grateful that she had attorney McAllister to assist her through this process.
