I am scheduled for a Pre-trial conference on December 10th for a D.U.I, however today I finally recieved a letter from the DA's office saying that I have been approved for A.R.D conditionally and I have a court date Febuary 24th.

I was pulled over in Lower Providence, PA because a Wawa employee told a cop I was acting funny when I bought cigarettes. The cop told me he would probably take me home because my house was right up the street. He gave me a breath test and told me to walk in a straight line and then lift my right foot and count. I made it to 17 and he told me to stop and than arrested me. He said I did not follow his instructions so he is not taking me home. Blood work came back .085%. His police report has a different story in it with slurred speech and blood shot eyes. All false. The only reason the arresting officer got mad at me was because I pointed out that his left foot was shaking really bad when was showing me the raise your right foot test. Chances of fighting and winning? No B.S. please.
It all comes down to why he stopped you. What someone said at a Wawa is not sufficient reason to stop you, but some...
I spoke with a lawyer today who said I will not qualify for ARD in Montgomery County, PA since I had it in 1999 for DUI. I am under the impression you can qualify after 10 years. He is offering a flat fee, but I feel he may not know how this works and will just take my money. His office is in Montgomery County and I would hope he would be up to date on all this. Should I look elsewhere or is he right. He told me any other lawyer who tells me I can get ARD is lying and just looking for money. Who is right?
You cannot get ARD if you had a DUI in the past 10 years. If you had one more than 10 years ago you could possibly...
I am being charged with DUI in Lower Providence, PA and just want an honest answer. I have been told, by a Montco lawyer, that they DO NOT reduce DUIs in Montgomery County. No chance at all. For some reason, I find this very hard to believe. Is he right or should I speak with someone else? I did have another DUI back in 1999 and got ARD.

I am being charged with a first offense DUI (High rate of alcohol) and underage drinking. I have applied for ARD after my preliminary hearing and am still awaiting a decision. I have received a notice to appear for a pre-trial Conference but I still did not receive an ARD decision. Within this time, I completed CRN evaluation as well as a complete D&A assessment and do not need any treatment. What should I expect to happen at the Pre-trial conference? Will my case go to trial even though I am still awaiting an ARD decision?
