    Historically, Most PA Charges Like These Are Closed-Out in Lower, Magisterial District Court,
    then Advanced, with a New Docket Number, to Upper Courts of Common Pleas.

    { When-issued Upper Court Docket NumberS should resemble: CP-09-CR-0000____-2015 }


    May Prompt Justice Be Served.

    This is going to be an interesting case to watch. It is quickly garnering national attention due to the story playing out like a Hollywood movie. I'm really curious to see how it all progresses. As I said in the above article, I believe that this investigation has legs to go elsewhere.

    http://www.philly.com/philly/news/20...__sources.html

    The sources, who confirmed the information but said they were not authorized to publicly discuss it, identified the victim as Thomas French, 64, a retired Bucks County sheriff's deputy and husband of fund-raiser Claire Risoldi...

    One source close to the situation said French left two suicide notes, asserting his innocence but describing himself as overwhelmed by the fallout from the charges...

    Risoldi, 67, is renowned in Bucks County political circles for the lavish fund-raisers she threw at her estate, dubbed Clairemont. She and French were married at a 2013 fund-raiser there. Last month, prosecutors accused the couple and other relatives of conspiring to inflate losses after three fires occurred at the mansion within five years, allowing the family to recoup millions in insurance payouts.
