SCOPAblog Presents: Commonwealth v. Peck

Host Corrie Woods interviews fellow appellate attorney Brian McNeil of the York County Office of the Public Defender to discuss his victory in Commonwealth v. Peck, where he doggedly appealed to SCOPA despite the lower courts' swift dismissal of his close reading of PA's Drug Delivery Resulting in Death statute (DDRD).  Fortunately, SCOPA agreed with his arguments, thus saving his client 20-40 years from life behind bars.    Show Notes:Justice Donohue's OpinionJustice Wecht's Concurring OpinionArticle from the York Daily RecordArticle:  Pennsylvania Uses the Charge of "Drug Delivery Resulting in Death" More Than Any Other StateThe Appeal blogRead more about Commonwealth v.
