The Bill of Rights contains basic, fundamental rights of individuals on which the government may not intrude. Many of these constitutional rights protect Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania criminal defendants in the criminal justice system. The Fourteenth Amendment extends substantive due process rights beyond just the federal system to criminal defendants in state courts where most criminal trials occur.
The fundamental constitutional rights of the criminal defendant permeate every aspect of the criminal justice process. If you have been accused of a crime in Pittsburgh or anywhere in the state of Pennsylvania, whether federal, state, or local, a seasoned Pittsburgh criminal defense attorney can explain these rights to you and help you to fight for them at every step of the way.
A felony is the most serious type of crime, and an individual convicted of a felony may be sentenced to state prison under certain circumstances.
A misdemeanor is a less serious offense, for which the offender may be sentenced to probation, county jail, a fine, or some combination of the three.
An infraction is the least serious offense and is generally punishable by a fine.
