Public Drunkenness, Other Charges AvoidedAug 26 2014 in 2014, Case Results, Crimes Against Public
A college student had too much to drink during a night out at a concert with friends at Heinz Field. When the student and her friends left the concert, they couldn’t find their car at the T station. They called the police and the student told the officer her friend’s car had been stolen. She then acted unruly with the officer and was visibly intoxicated. She ended up being charged with harassment, false reports, public drunkenness, and two counts of disorderly conduct.
The student, who works in retail at a shopping mall, had no prior criminal history. She hired Worgul, Sarna & Ness, Criminal Defense Attorneys, LLC to represent her on the harassment, false reports, public drunkenness and disorderly conduct charges.
Pittsburgh criminal lawyer Samir Sarna represented her in court. After talking to the assistant district attorney and the police officer, attorney Sarna negotiated for all charges against the college student to be withdrawn except for one summary disorderly conduct charge. All of the other charges have been expunged from the student’s record.
Case results depend upon a variety of factors unique to each case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any future case.
