Carnegie Mellon Student’s Trespassing Charge Expunged
A 25-year-old Carnegie Mellon student studying for his Ph.D in mechanical engineering, was cited by a police officer for trespassing on private property. The student was charged with a summary of trespassing. Thinking he could handle this charge on his own, he went to the local magistrate and was found guilty. At this time he contacted Worgul, Sarna & Ness, Criminal Defense Attorneys for help. Having no prior history of any kind, criminal defense attorney Samir Sarna handled the appeal. Within 30 days, we went to a hearing. The trespassing charge was later expunged from his record.
