Mandatory Minimum Drug Penalties Policy Change

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder recently announced a sweeping policy change that will employ a common sense approach to the application of federal mandatory minimum drug penalties.


In a recent decision, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has ruled that the admission of accuracy and calibration certificates for DUI breath test machines without testimony from the individual who performed the testing and prepared the certificates does not violate Sixth Amendment right to confrontation of a person accused of Driving Under the Influence.

Labor Day DUI Checkpoints for Central PA

Harrisburg Criminal Defense - (Almost) Gone in 60 Seconds

A Millersburg man was arrested after allegedly leading police on a high speed chase reaching speeds of more than 80 mph through Elizabethville, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania.  The man was placed in Dauphin County Prison on charges of Fleeding and Eluding, Recklessly Endangering Another Person, Resisting Arrest and other charges.  Facing significant criminal accusations, an experienced Harrisburg Criminal Defense Lawyer can help identify legal issues or defenses, define personal goals for the outcome of the case, and develop practical strategies to achieve them.

"When we treat man as he is, we make him worse than he is; when we treat man as if he already were what he potentially could be, we make him what he should be."  - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
