About Upper Dublin, PA
Upper Dublin is a township located in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. As of 2010, Upper Dublin’s population was approximately 25,569, and has grown tremendously since the 1950s, when the area was mostly farmland. Upper Dublin was originally established in 1701 and, prior to passage of the Act of Consolidation in 1854, was located adjacent to Lower Dublin, which was incorporated into Philadelphia after the act was passed.
Upper Dublin has an important historical context, as it was where George Washington and the Continental Army were camped after they were defeated in the Battle of Germantown in 1777, and up until the army’s march to Valley Forge. The Battle of White Marsh was eventually fought in Upper Dublin between the Americans and the British in early December 1777.
Currently, Upper Dublin has an area of about 13.2 square miles, and is located in the Delaware watershed. The area is home to about 9,397 households, and had a median income of about $106,337 per household and $123,030 per family as of 2007.
If you were not arrested on-site, you will be presented with a warrant for your arrest that will include the date and time by which you must turn yourself in for arrest. Within 24 hours, you will be arraigned by a judge who will determine whether bail is appropriate in your case. After this, an initial preliminary court date will be set, and you will receive a subpoena that will require you to appear at this hearing. Specific charges will be presented at the arraignment, where it will be determined whether the prosecution has sufficient evidence to proceed with trial. At the preliminary hearing, the prosecution must call witnesses and/or present sufficient evidence to establish that it is more likely than not that you committed the crime in question.
Generally, you should not answer any questions asked by the police without an experienced criminal defense attorney present. You also do not have to allow the police to search your property until you can establish that they have a validly issued search warrant to search the property in question. You have the right to view the warrant, and should not allow a search unless you have seen the warrant first.
