In a high profile case in Hanover, Pennsylvania, Attorney John Mooney got criminal charges against a new Hanover Constable dropped. Royce Foltz, II was charged with tampering with public records, unlawful use of a computer, making false statements, and theft by deception.
Foltz turned to the Capital Region’s Criminal Defense team at Mooney & Associates, specifically to firm founder, Attorney John Mooney for his defense.
Mooney previously told The York Dispatch that Foltz was still learning how to be a constable when the charges were filed. Foltz was elected one of Hanover’s constables in January 2016.
Foltz could not be reached for comment Monday. His defense attorney, John Mooney, did not return a phone message seeking comment.
Although Attorney Mooney was unavailable to return the call of the York Dispatch in a short time frame, he further commented below.
Mr. Foltz was just trying to learn the duties of a constable. There are NO guidelines nor rule book on how to perform the duties of a constable. Technically, constables are part of the executive branch and answerable to the Governor of Pa although our Supreme Court has said constables are” independent contractors who orbit the judiciary.” Mr. Foltz looks forward to returning to his duties as an elected constable.
