Attorney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a woman who was charged with Harassment under the Pennsylvania Crimes Code, 18 Pa.C.S.A. 2709. Our client was facing the possibility of both jail time and a large fine if she was convicted of the harassment charge. The facts of the case involved a public dispute at a local shopping center between our client and her adult daughter. Our client was never in any trouble with the authorities prior to this offense, and she was gainfully employed for many years. In short, she was an upstanding member of the community, and she did not want to end up with a criminal record.
At the court hearing, Attorney McAllister was able to negotiate a settlement of the case whereby the charges against out client were dropped. The Judge was willing to “dismiss” the harassment charge against our client. Our client left the courtroom with no jail time, no fine, and no record of a conviction. Needless to say, she was very pleased with the outcome of the case. We will be discussing the option of “expunging” arrest record with our client in the very near future.
