Pittsburgh DUI Attorney

Not guilty 2

Call on the Pittsburgh DUI Attorney, Steven C. Townsend if you’ve been charged with a DUI or other crime.
Since the Birchfield decision ruled that BAC results are not admissible without a warrant, District Attorneys are still trying to move forward with DUI cases on the general impairment charge. Don’t fall victim to the pressure to plead guilty. There are many defenses to general impairment cases and you should contact Eddy DeLuca Gravina & Townsend to discuss your options before making your decision.

You can lose your license, your job, and lose your right to carry a firearm.

After the hearing, defense attorney Steven Townsend said he thought the teens’ testimony was “suspect” and “inconsistent.”

“I think there’s a lot of holes that need to be closed,” Mr. Townsend said, raising the question of why the girls continued to have sex with Mr. Ruprecht if he was forcing them to have sex with others or hurting one of them. Mr. Townsend also noted that the two testified that they willingly had intercourse with Mr. Ruprecht.

“A lot of it just doesn’t make sense to me,” Mr. Townsend said.

__________________________________

Sex Assault cases are normally won or lost based based on the testimony at the Preliminary Hearing.  Over my many years of defending sex cases, I have been contacted by defendants who either waived their right to a  Preliminary Hearing or had ineffective representation.  The questions are:  What can I do now?  Why did my attorney waive the Preliminary Hearing?  How can you help me?  

There are ways to remedy when a defendant has lost his right to confront witnesses at the Preliminary Hearing, but you must hire an attorney who handles sex assault cases and has successfully litigated sex assault cases.  Steven C. Townsend has handled hundreds of assault cases and know the importance of every step of the process.  If you have been charged or are being investigated for sex assault please contact him immediately.  You only get once chance to defend yourself against criminal charges and the consequences of choosing the wrong or inexpereinced  attorney can be devastating.
