DePasquale gives recommendations after district justices wrongfully give out criminal records

Auditor General Eugene DePasquale held a press conference Monday morning to announce recommendations and a call for action to ensure that Pennsylvania's district justices are not wrongfully giving people a criminal record for offences that should be classified as civil violations. 

DePasquale released an audit that showed in an Erie County District Court a former district justice incorrectly filed criminal charges for theft of services in situations that should have been civil complaints.
