Fiery crash at Pennsylvania gas station leaves woman in ICU

A 21-year-old woman suffered severe burns when her car was struck at a gas pump in the Kensington area of Philadelphia, according to authorities.

Marijuana may become decriminalized in Philadelphia

According to Pennsylvania’s Controlled Substance, Drug Device, and Cosmetic Act, it is illegal for anyone in the state to possess a controlled substance, like marijuana. If a person is believed to be guilty for the possession of drugs, they face serious penalties, such as the requirement to spend up to a year in prison, pay a fine that does not exceed $5,000 or both.

The difference between larceny and embezzlement

Larceny and embezzlement are two crimes that are often confused. However, each has very distinct qualities which set them apart. According to Cornell University Law School, embezzlement occurs when a person takes personal property from someone else and happens most often when a person in Pennsylvania misappropriates money. A person may be found guilty of embezzlement if they keep the stolen property for themselves or transfer it to another party.

Officials accuse man of impaired driving in fatal crash

What is an Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition?

Although receiving a DUI is associated with a variety of different severe penalties, such as license suspension, fines and jail time, it is an offense that can remain on a person’s record. After a person is convicted of drunk driving, having this offense on their record can harm them in many different ways, especially while finding employment. However, according to the Office of the District Attorney City of Philadelphia, offenders may be able to have this charge expunged from their record if they participate in an Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program.

1 injured after tractor-trailer strikes dump truck

State Police and investigators responded to an accident involving a dump truck and a tractor-trailer at approximately 11:00 a.m. on Sept. 3. It happened along the Pennsylvania Turnpike near an overpass in Upper Merion Township. A Pennsylvania Turnpike worker suffered minor injures in the accident, which caused delays in the eastbound lanes as an investigation was conducted.

License Suspension is one of the consequences of a DUI

If you are like many in Pennsylvania, driving to work, school, the grocery store and other locations is an essential part of handling the demands of everyday life. However, if you are arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, one of the potential consequences of drunk driving is getting your license suspended. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, how long your license is suspended for depends on how many prior DUI offenses exist on your record and what your blood alcohol content level was at the time of the arrest.
