Allegations of theft of funds leads to arrest of local teacher

Schools in Butler and throughout Pennsylvania often have money allocated for extracurricular activities, like sports. Teachers have access to this money. In some cases, if a certain amount goes missing, there may be allegations that a teacher or other school administrator stole it. When there is an arrest on these types of charges, it can have long-term consequences in a personal and professional way.

Your sentence after a criminal conviction

Facing criminal charges means your future is uncertain. You may not know what to expect tomorrow let alone what may happen when your trial is over.

People who are arrested for crimes in Butler and across Pennsylvania could find themselves in difficult circumstances with major allegations and the possibility of extensive penalties.

What if you are arrested for allegations of criminal mischief?

In Pennsylvania, there are certain legal terms that are obvious and easy to understand when a person is arrested and faces a criminal charge. For example, if a person is arrested for theft, the charge is relatively self-explanatory. However, other charges can be more confusing as to what it specifically entails. An example of this is "criminal mischief." There are many acts that will lead to criminal mischief charges and those who are facing these allegations must know what they are since this is a vital part of formulating a strong defense and potentially avoiding the penalties for a conviction.
