Assuming you have no prior record of convictions, you will get probation. The maximum sentence you face is 1 to 2 years incarceration. However, that maximum usually is ordered for repeat convicts who have multiple convictions. Hire an attorney and inquire as to whether your county has a first...Read more »
I gave my dog to my uncle to help his wife feel better since she had cancer. I gave it to him under the condition that if they couldn’t take care of her anymore, to give her back to me. A year after she died, he claimed to not be able to take care of my dog anymore and asked to give her back to... Read more »
I doubt you can sue her for theft since your uncle handed the dog over to her. Maybe if you offer to reimburse her for the vet bills she'll return the dog. Since she seems to care enough for the dog to spend a decent amount of money on her, perhaps the nicest thing you can do for your dog is allow...Read more »
My ex is trying to accuse me of using his debit card for purchases he has made. He left his wallet at home for almost a week while he was away and now hes saying that i made purchases in his absence. What can i do to prove my innocence?
Well, theoretically, you don't have to prove your innocence at all: the cops/courts have to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. The problem here is that it *is* very difficult to prove a negative. How to prove you *didn't* do something? If you get a call from the cops, you can certainly...Read more »
Will a felon, who owns their own vehicle, which nobody else has access to, be convicted of felonies, if a firearm with tampered numbers is found, without fingerprints or dna on the weapon. Say the felon is on state felony probation already.
WIthout discovery the "will I be convicted" question is almost impossible to answer. Finding a firearm in a vehicle under the sole control of a convicted felon is certainly not good. But there are a whole host of issues that could be relevant to the disposition of the case. More troubling is...Read more »

Very likely not. You'll go through the juvenile system, which makes every effort *not* to detain kids away from their families. Cooperate, show (and actually feel) remorse, and garner family support, and you should be OK.
No idea - and I just answered a *very* similar question on here. Sounds like it should be a probation case, but you never know and it depends what you're charged with. Aggravated assault is a felony; simple assault is a misdemeanor. Two very different animals, and the punishments for each differ...Read more »
I am being accused of using someone else's checking account information to pay two of my credit cards. The first was my home Depot card, and I notified the person that was the checking account owner that a payment was about to go through, and the account owner called his bank and stopped the...

I had never been in trouble, I was given an f2 unauthorized act in writing. Only thing I did was sign the reciept. From what I have researched I should of gotten a misdemeanor not a F2 and m2 for theft by unlawful taking

You need to contact the Assistant District Attorney handling your husband's case, and tell him/her your position on things. "Strangulation" is a relatively new statute in Pennsylvania, and it's a second-degree felony - punishable by a maximum of 10 years in jail. It's no joke.
