    Philly to Legalize Marijuana – Think Again

    Philly to Legalize Marijuana - Think Again

    The news has been buzzing about how Philadelphia has passed legislation to legalize small amounts of marijuana by drastically reducing the criminal penalty, eliminating jail time, and setting fines to start around $25. It is now expected that Mayor Nutter will sign the bill shortly. As stated in the Philly.com article by Chris Hepp, Inquirer Staff Writer Ramsey said Monday that he has been assured by the city's law department that the city has the ability to enact its own statute treating possession of marijuana as a noncriminal offense. Possession remains a criminal offense under state law. The BIG problem is Philadelphia can not [Read more...]

    Court Caused Suspension Delay – Relief Proposed

    Court Caused Suspension Delay - Relief Proposed

    Due to delay issues caused by the York County Court system there may be relief on the horizon for anyone convicted of minor drug charges.

    From the York Dispatch:

    York County Clerk of Courts Don O'Shell said he was called recently by state Rep. Stan Saylor, R-Windsor Township, who is majority whip.

    Saylor said he was looking into introducing legislation that would allow the affected defendants to obtain what's known as a "bread and butter" license, which would allow them to drive to and from work, according to O'Shell. He said he thinks that would be in the interests of justice.

    Let's Talk Suspension Segments

    A suspension segment is the time a license is first suspended to the time a license is restored. seg·ment noun ˈsegmənt/ 1. each of the parts into which something is or may be divided.

    Can I Fight My License Suspension For A Drug Case?

    For a number of years the City of Philadelphia neglected to report convictions for drug cases to PennDOT, negating the ability for the department to suspend their drivers license.

In 2012, at least 11,499 people should have been reported, according to court records. Only four were. Last year, at least 11,246 people should have been reported. [Read more...]

    5 Years of Suspension Wiped Away In One Month

    5 Years of Suspension Wiped Away In One Month

    Client "C" came to me with almost 5 years of license suspension in Pennsylvania. His driving record was a mess with old tickets from all over. Things did not sound good at first, but after our investigation we found a PennDOt error that needed to be fixed. Years of experience was used to determine that the error occured when PennDOT calculated the suspension time. At first PennDOT was reluctant to correct the error because the calculation of suspension time and credit date seemed correct, but after a careful petition was submitted, the eligibility date was changed so "C" was able to get his [Read more...]

    Can I Drive A Moped Or Electric Bike In Pennsylvania?
