I have 3 under age drinking charges I have plead guilty to and I am currently paying off the fines in a timely manner. My first was in 2011 and it was suspended for 3 months and then my last 2 were in 2014

I am 19 year old female and I was at a party where the police showed up. The cops separated into groups, I was speaking the cop I was assigned to and was breathalyzed and blew a 0.142 and said yes I was drinking. I gave them all of my information saying to him and say that my dad was a lawyer and that I wanted to become a doctor, Ive never gotten in trouble before not even a speeding ticket, and if there was anything he could do to not give me an underage. I don't recall everything he said but I think it was- theres nothing I can do. He then went to someone else and spoke to the other officer and came back and asked us to call a cab. I left with nothing and I believe 27 other people left with paper citations. do you think a summons will come in the mail since I gave them all my info?
It is probable. Though only a summary offense, an underage is serious because it will result in a suspension of your...

My daughters dad got into the ARD program after a DUI. The date for this was set on 8/5/2014, the DL-21 was sent to PennDOT on 8/18/2014. When does the 60 day suspension start? He has been driving around with my daughter and has not notified me about any of this. I found it on the docket sheet website. If it is suspended and he is picking my daughter up, what can I do to stop it?
The license suspension commences when PennDOT is notified by the court that an operator license is subject to...

My boyfriend got his 3rd dui in 2008. His case is adjudicated and he is still awaiting sentencing. Nothing have been said about the case since November 2008. He wants to get his license and Harrisburg said he can but he doesn't know what to do about the unfinished case.
I would have him talk with his attorney who is representing him in the case in which he is awaiting sentencing.
In 2007 I was convicted of DUI tier I receiving ARD. Then in 2010 I was convicted of DUI tier III receiving IPP. Unknowingly, I attempted to purchase a firearm at a local dealer and when they ran my name through the PICS system, I came up unauthorized to purchase. Do I have any course of action or possibility of getting this changed? Thank you.
