In Upper Dublin Township, police recently approached a teacher, whose car was improperly parked. Allegedly, the teacher was not very cooperative and refused to move the vehicle. The teacher instead consented to have an officer move the vehicle to an area where parking is permitted. When the officer was in the car to move it, he claimed to see some marijuana and paraphernalia in the vehicle. Consequently, the teacher was charged with disorderly conduct. The officer referenced the teacher’s possession of marijuana on the citation. As a teacher, the individual was concerned that a criminal conviction of this nature could cause them to lose their job; therefore, he retained the services of Philadelphia criminal defense lawyer Michael Fienman.

As an experienced criminal defense attorney, Michael Fienman understood the client’s fears and immediately began handling the case. Attorney Fienman negotiated with the police officer who issued the citation and successfully arranged for his client’s participation in a court diversion program. If his client completes the requirements of this diversion program, Mr. Fienman will be able to expunge all records of this incident and the client can rest easy knowing that they will never have to disclose the embarrassing situation.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
