Basic Criminal Law Requirements
Every criminal case requires a Mens Rea and an Actus Reus. Essentially the Commonwealth must prove an act consistent with a state of mind (intentionally, knowingly, recklessly, etc.). However, there are certain offenses that do not require a state of mind, per se statutes, like speeding. A defendant can be charged with his/her own acts, or the acts of another (accomplice liability/ conspiracy). Further, one can even be charged for not completing an act under an “Attempt” theory.
When you are being investigated or have been charged with a crime, you need to exercise your important constitutional rights: (1) REMAIN SILENT; and (2) HIRE AN ATTORNEY. Always be courteous to law enforcement, but don’t speak to them without an attorney present. Remain silent and request to call CDM LAW and get the CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY you need.
If you are being investigated or have been charged with a crime, then you need an attorney with experience and skills to help you get justice. Each criminal case requires a unique strategy, but sometimes that requires offering evidence and witnesses to confirm what we already know – that you are NOT GUILTY! CDM LAW has years of experience in the District Attorney’s Office as a former prosecutor and a lifetime of exposure to the Criminal Justice system, CDM LAW has the EXPERIENCE and SKILLS to DEFEND YOUR CASE.

Important Pennsylvania Legal Decisions
Commonwealth v. Alexander, 243 A.3d 177, 181 (Pa. 2020)- The Supreme Court, Donohue, J., held that warrantless vehicle searches require both probable cause and exigent circumstances under the state constitution, overruling Commonwealth v. Gary, 625 Pa. 183, 91 A.3d 102.
Commonwealth v. Barr, 2020 PA Super 236, 240 A.3d 1263 (Pa. Super. Ct. 2020) Holding that the odor of marijuana is relevant to the overall determination of whether probable cause existed for a warrantless search; the odor of marijuana alone, without anything else, is not sufficient to justify a warrantless search under the Fourth Amendment.
