False Reports Attorney in Scranton, Pennsylvania
Law enforcement authorities often face very limited resources, and false reports result in wasted time and money for the state. The Pennsylvania legislature has criminalized certain conduct dealing with intentionally providing false information to officers with the intent to implicate other people. This offense includes reporting incidents with the knowledge that they did not happen or pretending to know about an incident.
These crimes are considered to be second-degree misdemeanors with penalties that may include jail time and fines if so it’s important to get in contact with a false report defense lawyer at Peters Law Firm. If the conduct occurred during a declared state of emergency and caused law enforcement to divert from dealing with the crisis, then the offense is even more severe.
