If you have been arrested in Lebanon, PA, let The Law Office of Jason R. Carpenter help you get the best possible outcome in your criminal case, whether that means having your entire case dismissed, taking your case to court and obtain a “not guilty” verdict, or accepting a plea bargain to have your charges/penalties reduced.

How We Can Help You

Our Lebanon criminal defense lawyer has the experience and knowledge to provide compassionate and personalized legal representation to get the most favorable result in your case. We can investigate your arrest, collect and analyze evidence, and develop a strong and effective defense strategy on your behalf.

Our firm handles the following types of criminal cases in Lebanon:

  • DUI – Driving under the influence (DUI) is a serious criminal offense. In Pennsylvania, you can get a DUI for having a blood alcohol content (BAC) of at least .08 percent or driving while impaired by alcohol/drugs.

  • Drug crimes – One of the most common types of crimes is drug offense. You can face serious criminal penalties for possession, possession with intent to sell or distribute, trafficking, cultivation or manufacturing, or even possession of drug paraphernalia.

  • Felony – Felony crimes are the most serious types of crimes a person can face in Pennsylvania. A conviction is punishable by a lengthy prison term and fines worth tens of thousands of dollars.

  • Juvenile crimes – If a minor under 18 years of age is charged with a criminal offense, they enter the juvenile court system, rather than the criminal justice system like adults. Common examples of juvenile crimes include underage drinking, DUI, drug possession, theft, vandalism, disorderly conduct, assault, truancy, traffic violations, and curfew violations.

  • Misdemeanors – Although misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, getting convicted can still lead to jail time, fines, and a criminal record.

  • Probation – An alternative to serving time behind bars is probation, in which you are released from detention and subject to supervision. You are required to regularly meet with a probation officer, avoid further misconduct, and fulfill other conditions (e.g., drug testing, community service, etc.)

  • Protection from abuse (PFA) – If you have been accused of domestic violence and recently had a protection order placed against you, our legal is ready to defend your rights during the legal process of obtaining a final PFA order.

  • Theft – From shoplifting and grand theft auto to theft of trade secrets or services, we defend clients facing a wide range of theft crimes. Depending on the value of the property that was allegedly taken, a theft charge can be a misdemeanor or a felony.

  • Traffic offenses and traffic tickets – Violating the traffic laws does not only result in a ticket and having points added to your driver’s license, but it can also lead to driver’s license suspension and even criminal charges.
