Different types of terrorism

Pennsylvanian residents may not be aware of this, but there are distinct classes for different types of behavior or actions that could be considered terrorism. This can be important to know, since anyone can end up facing charges for terrorism, even if they aren't terrorists.

When Pennsylvania residents hear the term "playing with fire," they may not think about arson. However, this offense is a serious one and people who commit this crime may find themselves facing felony charges.

Confrontation over animal cruelty results in Altoona man's arrest

It may be easy for many in Lancaster to claim that they would always be able to think clearly and act appropriately in any situation. However, when confronted with a high-stress scenario, those same people may be surprised to see how quickly fear, doubt and frustration can get the best of them and cause them to act in ways that they normally would not. If such actions escalate to the point of being criminal, the hope is that the mitigating factors that led to them will be considered before assigning fault. 

What are your Miranda rights?

If you watch cop shows in Pennsylvania or read crime novels, you are probably familiar with the standard recitation that police typically give when advising an arrestee of his or her Miranda rights. You may not have ever given this much thought, but if the police ever arrest you on criminal charges, you need to be aware of your Miranda rights. According to FindLaw, if police do not advise you of your Miranda rights prior to questioning you, the evidence obtained from the questioning is not admissible in court.

When most residents in Pennsylvania think about a person accused of a criminal offense may have a stereotype in their mind about that person.

That, however, may well change soon.
