Customer Question

where would be a good place to look up info on Pennsylvania Penal code? My husband got arrested for simple assault earlier after going ballistic when my mother was terrorized by my brother again today. We called the police staion and asked if he needed to turn himself in, but the police said they would get back us. They did and my husband went and turned himself in. The officer was actually very cool about everything (details if youd like could be provided) My mother did go and get her PFA reinstated and we are in the process of getting a permanent one. I am hoping for an OR release but we will see. I do understand that any answer you give does not in any sense constitute legal representation of any kind. I would appreciate any pointers in the right direction as well a guestimate as to what I can expect to happen.
