Commonwealth v. Rojas-Rolon

In Commonwealth v. Rojas-Rolon, the Pennsylvania Superior Court ruled that the defendant’s convictions for PWID and related charges were supported by sufficient evidence because the Commonwealth proved that he constructively possessed contraband recovered from a vehicle. The Court then rejected the defendant’s argument that the trial court imposed an illegal sentence by imposing court costs without first determining his ability to pay. The Superior Court relied on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s recent opinion in Commonwealth v. Lehman and the Superior Court’s recent opinion in Commonwealth v. Lopez.
