Legal Answers
3 Questions Answered

Q. Is a victim and a person of domestic violence aloud contact even if there's no court order or PFA stating you can't?
A: Attorney Hyde provided you with a sound answer. You should use caution.
Q. Is signature forgery always a crime no matter the circumstances surrounding it?
A: The short answer is "Yes," it is a crime. The key to Pennsylvania's forgery statute is that there must be an "intent to defraud or injure." Whether a crime is committed is not determined by the outcome, i.e. a financial gain by the actor, but by whether the actor's intent was to defrauded or injured. Hope this helps.
Q. How to handle a citation?
A: Furnishing alcohol to a minor is a Misdemeanor 3 in PA and carries a minimum fine of $1,000 for a first offense. However, the facts in your case seem outside the norm and it would be better if you spoke directly to an attorney in order to get a more accurate assessment of the case. Most criminal defense attorneys offer a free consultation and should be able to assist you.
