  • Calling all nosy neighbors

    Saturday Sep 6 | via Times News 

    Or, do you suffer from insomnia and long for something productive to do while everyone else in your household is sleeping? Have you grown weary and perhaps even broke from watching too many late-night infomercials and feel the need to redirect your energy to something more exciting and less expensive? If any of these scenarios apply to you, then I would like to offer a unique opportunity for you to put your super sleuth skills and bustling brain cells to good use. I think we are all tired of and angry from reading story after story of meth labs, break-ins and vandalism in our communities and instead of things getting any better, they are most assuredly becoming worse.

Was stopped on 09/29/11 due to expired registration plates. My license had been suspended in 2008 due to DUI offense, and had completed outpatient treatment, paid the correct fines and was currently waiting to have our D.O.T to advise where to have Interlock ignition placed. During the traffic stop, car was parked at shopping center parking lot, was moved onto main highway where officer was waiting for vehicle to be moved and stopped .5 miles up the street. I was mailed summons of 75 pa 1543(b), 75 pa 1786(f) and 75 pa 1301 (a); and was advised by court to set payment plan in motion. however, contacted today to be advised that 1543(b) carries mandatory jail time and fines, and to plea 'not guilty' and hire public defender by the magistrate's office.
