Misdemeanors Archives

How do road infractions and misdemeanors differ?

Pennsylvanian residents like you may spend a good portion of your travel times in a car. Even if you abide by the laws generally speaking, there may be instances in which you are accused of breaking one or more of them. This can lead to damaging consequences that Marinaro Law Firm will work to defend you from.

At Marinaro Law Firm, we are committed to helping people in Pennsylvania to protect their future when they have been convicted of a crime. 

Why reckless driving can be a misdemeanor

In Pennsylvania, driving charges are largely divided between infractions, misdemeanors, and felonies. Infractions are usually among the most common charges because they encompass things like speeding or coasting through a stop sign. However, a person can also face misdemeanors or even felony charges depending on the actions taken on the road.

New year, clean slate in Pennsylvania

Many people see the start of a new year as an opportunity to wipe the slate clean and start again. Thanks to a new law that took effect in Pennsylvania last month, many people with histories of arrests or convictions will be able to seal criminal records so that landlords and employers, among others, will no longer be able to access them. The law goes by the name Clean Slate because that is essentially what it does for the people it affects. 

What constitutes shoplifting?

Shoplifting may seem like a minor crime, but it affects everyone in Pennsylvania. When someone shoplifts, it costs money to retailers and eventually impacts consumers. That is why retailers are very strict when it comes to suspected shoplifting situations. However, there may be a time when a retailer accuses you of shoplifting when you do not feel you are guilty. To understand what this crime is, you need to know how the law defines it.

Breaking down shoplifting

Pennsylvanian residents, especially the younger ones, may know about the recent shoplifting "trend". Younger people are stealing from stores for thrill or as a form of supposed protest against corporations. However, this theft affects real businesses and employees, and those who steal may not get off as lightly as they seem to believe.
