Successful Motion Saves Millcreek Nurse’s License

A Millcreek Township nurse was suspected of taking medication from a patient. When questioned by police, she was told, in effect, that she would receive ARD and avoid a conviction if she cooperated by waiving her right to consult with a lawyer. This would enable her to retain her nurse’s license. She subsequently gave a statement, after which she was charged with theft.

The Commonwealth later denied her application for ARD. Erie criminal defense lawyer Tim George filed a suppression motion on her behalf. After an evidentiary hearing, the Court held that the statement could not be used against the defendant. Without the benefit of the defendant’s incriminating statement, the Commonwealth then agreed to approve her application for ARD. The nurse avoided a conviction, retained her nurse’s license, and later had her arrest record expunged.

No two cases are exactly the same. The facts of each case often are in dispute. You cannot expect that your case will be resolved just like this one. However, you can expect our best effort, personal attention, and a commitment to the defense of your freedom.

Mr. George and his entire office staff were very kind and helping me through my first ever experience with the law. He was able to get me exactly what he said he would in the outcome of my trial. The entire staff was very informative and kept me up to date on everything. Very pleased with my experience and would most definately recommend him to others.
