Judge gives Villanova teen second chance after drug charges

A drug conviction often comes with serious charges that can impact a person for a lifetime. These penalties can be especially hard on young people in Philadelphia who have their whole lives ahead of them. However, it is possible for some to turn their lives around after being given another chance, even if drug trafficking charges still lead to a conviction.

Man arrested in Pennsylvania for keeping heroin in his car

Drug crimes are punishable on both the state and federal level. In particular, possession of drugs, like marijuana, prescription drugs and other narcotics, is a crime that is associated with consequences in Philadelphia like fines, jail time and the possibility of a permanent criminal record.

Pennsylvania Supreme Court enables law enforcement to search vehicles without warrant

The United States Constitution protects all citizens from unreasonable searches and seizures, but this right typically applies only to a person’s home or place of business. Until recently, however, authorities in Pennsylvania were required to obtain a warrant from a judge before searching a vehicle for evidence of a drug crime, sex crime, or even drunk driving.

Pennsylvania lawmakers considering implementation of prescription drug database

Illegal drug use in Pennsylvania is on the rise. Last year, there were more than 55 drug overdose deaths in Washington County alone. Some people may not realize that many people turn to prescription pills to satisfy their addictions, often by shopping for multiple doctors to write prescriptions.

Pennsylvania prep school graduates arrested for running large drug ring

Some Pennsylvanians may think that they can identify drug dealers and drug ring operators, but sometimes they are more difficult to detect. In some cases, people who are arrested for drug trafficking appear harmless to most people, making their drug rings even more difficult to uncover.

Pennsylvania woman arrested in store parking lot for possession of heroin

When people in Pennsylvania and elsewhere become addicted to controlled dangerous substances such as heroin, cocaine, and prescription drugs, it affects not only themselves but also their loved ones. Oftentimes, parents of young children find themselves addicted to these substances, and they may face serious consequences that sometimes separate them from their families.

Proposed Pennsylvania law may prevent heroin-related deaths

Drug overdoses claim the lives of far too many Pennsylvanians. One reason for the uptick in overdoses related to heroin use is the purity of the heroin itself, which can be as high as 80 percent. Also, some data shows that the rise in prescription drug abuse is also contributing to increased heroin use.

Prescription drug take-back boxes now available in some Pennsylvania counties

Drug addictions are often powerful enough to cause serious harm to a person’s career ambitions, personal relationships, and self-worth. When people serve jail sentences for a drug crime, they may be unable to support their families, and after they leave prison, it may be difficult to restart their careers. Fortunately, some officials in Pennsylvania are working to help people overcome their addictions to prescription drugs so that they will be less likely to face drug charges in the future.

Law enforcement arrests more than a dozen alleged drug distributors in Centre County

People who distribute illegal drugs often work together in well-coordinated networks. However, when Pennsylvania law enforcement discovers an important piece of information, it often leads to a more thorough investigation, and ultimately the members of the network are arrested for drug crimes such as possession with intent to distribute. When Pennsylvanians read about these cases, it is important for them to remember that everyone is innocent until proven guilty, even if the person has some connection to a drug ring.

Police arrest woman who sold heroin through East Liberty McDonald’s drive-thru window

Because illegal drugs such as heroin are so addictive, some Pennsylvanians will do anything to find and obtain it. In some cases, these illegal drugs are brought and sold in unlikely places. However, these clandestine activities are sometimes reported to law enforcement, and the drug seller is ultimately charged with a drug crime.
