Fatal accident in Montgomery Township fatal for elderly woman

When driving, it is important to be aware of all surroundings. Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of car accidents in the United States, and it can have tragic consequences. This could have been the case with a recent fatal car accident in Montgomery Township, Pennsylvania.

Trucker causes crash, sends 87-year-old man to hospital

On Oct. 12, a multiple-vehicle accident occurred near Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, in South Whitehall that appears to have been caused by a drunk truck driver. A 56-year-old man from Allentown, Pennsylvania, has been arrested and charged with fleeing and eluding, suspicion of DUI, accidents involving an attended vehicle and driving with a suspended license. He was also charged with eight other traffic infractions. At least one person was sent to the hospital with serious injuries from the collision.

Why Is John Karoly Still Practicing ?

Many people who know that I have been practicing law for as long as John Karoly has, have asked me in disbelief, how he could still be practicing law this long after his conviction. (In July 2009 Karoly pled guilty to tax evasion and defrauding a church out of $500,000.) His sentencing was not scheduled until later this month. The question is how can a convicted felon still be allowed to practice law  -- not to mention why it is taking so long to sentence him? Most people I talk to assume that Karoly is so well-connected that he will never do jail time. There have been many incredulous letter sent to the newspapers and to the Chief of the Pa. Disciplinary Board speculating on how and why this has happened. In fact, my long-time partner and friend Martye Cohen, wrote one of those letters and received a response from the Disciplinary Chief himself agreeing that this should not be happening and that changes were being considered. Accordingly a rule change has been proposed that would prevent this from happening in the future. Let's examine the current Rule 214 of the Rules of Disciplinary Enforcement. These rules set forth the penalties and act as the enforcement provisions for violations of the Rules of Conduct.
