Commonwealth v. Hobel

Pennsylvania Superior Court

May 10, 2022

After a jury convicted the defendant of three gunpoint robberies and a subsequent high-speed chase, he appealed to the Pennsylvania Superior Court, claiming that his motion to suppress was erroneously denied, his matters were improperly joined, as well as weight and sufficiency arguments. The latter claims were perfunctory and not meritorious. The suppression motion asserted that the extraterritorial actions of the police violated the Municipal Police Jurisdiction Act (MPJA), 42 Pa.C.S. ยงยง 8951-8954. The Court offered a detailed analysis of the MPJA and two officers’ actions outside their home jurisdictions before affirming the lower court’s order.
