Hate Crime Laws in Pennsylvania

Providing You with Information Relevant to the Defense of Your Case and Your Rights

In Pennsylvania, many crimes are made legally more serious when prosecutors deem that the alleged crime was a hate crime.

In recent years, several high-profile cases have resulted in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court reducing the scope of our state’s hate crime laws. Still, many individuals facing criminal charges face hate crime charges when the alleged perpetrator is suspected of being motivated by bias against people for their sexual preference, national origin, gender, religion, race, ethnicity or political affiliation.
