When Your Liberty Is At Stake, Philadelphia Criminal Defense Lawyer Troy R. Crichton, Esq. Gets Results.

  • Commonwealth v. T.J., Philadelphia Possession with Intent to Distribute (PWID) and Gun Charges (VUFA) - Motion to Suppress Granted/Charges Dismissed

    • Client was arrested in a house with over 30 lbs of marijuana, hundreds of THC cartilages, $15,000.00 in cash and a handgun with an obliterated serial number.

All charges were dismissed.

    • Client was arrested for allegations of sexual assault. He was arrested and taken to jail even though he never had any prior police contact.

Over the next 12 months, Attorney Crichton fought at all stages of the proceeding and eventually secured a resounding not guilty and vindication for his client who had always maintained his innocence after a three day jury trial.

  • Commonwealth v. E.J., Philadelphia Jury: Possession With Intent to Distribute and related offenses - Not Guilty

    • Client was arrested by Philadelphia police after they supposedly used a confidential informant to purchase drugs from client via cellphone.

Attorney Crichton’s client was accepted for ARD and the charges dismissed.
