Assault

Assault charges come in two categories: simple assault and aggravated assault. Simple Assault is always some level of misdemeanor and generally involves causing non-serious bodily injury or attempted to put another in fear of imminent serious bodily injury. Aggravated assault is a felony of the first degree – punishable by up to 20 years incarceration – if the State shows beyond a reasonable doubt that a defendant caused or attempted to cause serious bodily injury to another under circumstances that show extreme indifference to human life.

Drug Crimes

Drug charges can be filed in both state and federal court. In both jurisdictions the drug laws are complex and the possible penalties are severe depending on the type and quantity of the drug. Fortunately, DeLuco Law has experience handling cases in both state and federal court for charges ranging from simple possession to the manufacturing and trafficking of illegal drugs. Unlike many criminal defense firms, DeLuco Law is also ready and able to conduct a comprehensive investigation of the evidence to achieve the best possible result in your case.

DUI

While all DUI charges are treated very seriously in Western Pennsylvania, your expected sentence will depend on your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) and your prior history, if any, of DUI convictions. If you have had prior DUIs and/or your BAC is high the penalties can be severe. DUIs can also result in the loss of your license and adversely affect your employment. With so much at stake, you should contact a knowledgeable Criminal Defense Lawyer who can explain the elements of the offense, possible penalties (including suspension of your driving license), defenses, and expected outcomes.

Expungements

A past mistake resulting in a conviction for a minor crime or even a criminal charge or even minor convictions can have lifelong consequences, including barriers to obtaining employment, furthering your education, finding a home, securing a professional license, and/or applying for a gun permit. However, through the process of expungement, you may be able to erase all or part of your criminal record which means it will no longer be visible to the general public, including employers, educational institutions, and insurance companies.

PFA

A Protection From Abuse Order is a serious matter that may result in major consequences including irreparable damage to your relationships, reputation, freedoms, and your future. While PFAs serve an important and necessary function for real victims of domestic abuse, they may also be abuse. Obtaining a temporarily PFA’s only requires an alleged victim to file a short narrative claiming an instance of abuse. Temporary PFAs can, therefore, be quite easily used to harass, evicted someone from their home, infringe their right to firearms, and/or gain leverage in a divorce or custody case. If you have been served with a PFA, regardless of whether you have done anything wrong or not, you are entitled to be defended by an experienced law firm that will fight on your behalf.

Restoring Suspended Driver's Licenses

Once suspended by the Department of Motor Vehicles, it is often very difficult to restore one’s driver’s license. This is typically the case regardless of the initial reason for your suspension, whether it be for unpaid tickets, failure to respond to tickets, or a criminal conviction for a DUI or possession case. There are many nuances and loopholes involved in the driver’s license restoration process, but a law firm who specializes in Pennsylvania driver’s license restoration may be able to help you navigate the process and work through PennDot and/or the Courts to get your license back sooner.

Theft & Robbery

The offense of theft and robbery both involve the taking of property of from another with the intent to deprive the owner their possession. Theft is the basic property offense and the penalties vary greatly depending on the individual circumstances of your case. The most important factors being the method of taking and the value of the stolen item(s). Thefts range in severity from summary offense to first degree felony. Robbery on the hand it always a serious crime and always graded as a felony with the possibility of serious prison time. Robbery involves a theft but with specific aggravating circumstances.

Traffic Defense

If you have received a citation for speeding, careless driving, reckless driving, driving with a suspended license, or another traffic violation you should make sure you fully understand and appreciate the consequences before admitting guilt. People often assume that traffic violations are relatively harmless, but the cost might be much greater than you think. There can be long-term effect on auto insurance rates and potential adverse consequences for subsequent traffic violations. Traffic violations usually result in points on your license, if not a mandatory suspension of your driver’s license. Obviously, the loss of your driver’s license can be disastrous as you likely rely on your driving privileges for work, for your family, and to run daily errands.

Underage Drinking

While many people under the legal drinking age consume alcohol only a fraction are ever unlucky enough to be charged with an underage offense. Despite the prevalence of drinking alcohol before one’s 21st birthday, the consequences of being convicted of an underage are be significant in that it results in a mandatory license suspension for at least 90 days. Before admit guilt to an underage, you should fully understand the consequences and your rights.
