    Dismissal And Fine For Man Charged With Hitting Car

    Sep 01 2015 in Case Results, Traffic Offenses

    A Mt. Lebanon client of ours with Asperger’s Syndrome was charged with a misdemeanor accident and summary charge of not driving in his lane after he knocked off the mirror of another vehicle and continued driving. The 36-year-old had no previous records and called our offices looking for help. Pittsburgh criminal defense attorney Samir Sarna took his case and negotiated for a dismissal of all charges with him pleading guilty. The officer at the site had the accident on tape and clearly showed him hitting the car. He received zero traffic points and ended up paying only a fine and court costs.

    Aug 31 2015 in Case Results, Criminal Defense

    A Mercer County man in his late twenties with multiple priors, was on probation when he was charged with five 2nd degree felony counts of fleeing, five 1st degree misdemeanor counts of access device fraud, two felony theft counts, one misdemeanor theft count, and one 1st degree misdemeanor count of receiving stolen property. The man turned to Pittsburgh criminal defense attorney Samir Sarna for help in his situation. Samir got every charge withdrawn except for misdemeanor theft, to which he pleaded guilty. Our client was in jail so we had a detainer hearing where we were able to get the judge to lift the detainer and go home to his family within only a week of him hiring us. The man received no further penalty on his current probation but left with a new sentence of probation rather than going to jail, which were positive results for him.
