Why it's important never to talk to a cop

Fifty years ago, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) made a landmark ruling in the case Miranda vs. Arizona. You have no doubt heard the words they mandated in that ruling over and over again: You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you.

Drunk Driving Penalties In Pennsylvania: What You Need To Know

Being arrested for drunk driving can be a very scary and stressful experience. It can also leave you wondering what's going to happen to you, and whether there is any hope that the charges against you may be reduced or dropped. When it comes to DUI cases, details matter and the factors related to your stop, testing and arrest also matter.

Can silence be used by prosecutors? Supreme Court to decide

Miranda warnings are a critical aspect of the criminal process. Based on the landmark Supreme Court case Miranda v. Arizona, the warning is essentially a reminder that law enforcement is authorized to use statements and information provided by the accused against him or her in court.

Settlement reached for former juvenile offenders

After claiming that their rights were violated by the 'kids-for-cash' case, 1,066 former defendants from Luzerne County Juvenile Court and their parents will split $12.2 million. The settlement is part of a class-action suit against a developer who paid off two judges to place convicted juvenile offenders in for-profit detention center that his firm built.

How would legalized marijuana use affect Pennsylvania?

Bank Robberies May Be Based on Addiction, Not Money

People may see bank robbers as desperate individuals who are strapped for cash, or greedy opportunists who don't think about making an honest living.
