I have a friend that has a dui. its her 2nd offense. the offense occurred June 2009. She has a warrant currently because she failed to show in court. she would like to clear this matter up. what would be her first step. is she looking at jail time or could it be reduced because its been over 5 yrs? what fines are associated with such a charge? she is currently sober and has been for some time. she has a sponsor and have been attending meetings regularly. would that be taken into consideration? Thank you kindly
She needs to hire a lawyer right away. If the case is in Bucks County, then she will need to deal with the warrant...
Hello. I was pulled over last night very drunk. The officers gave a sobriety test and I told them I couldn't stand on one leg because I had to much to drink. They sat me in the police car then drove me home and dropped me off leaving my truck on the side of the road. They did not take me to the police station, they did not do a breathalyzer, they did not take blood, and didn't give me any paperwork. Could I still get a DUI or does it sound like they let me go? Thanks.
Since you were so intoxicated, it is quite possible that the true facts of the event maybe different from what you...
The incident happened on 12/2/10 I didn't get anything(summons court date). I got a call from a state trooper on 4/9/12 saying I have a warrant for my arrest. I was never charged with a dui or arrested.

the cops saw me pass thru a intersection. shorty after that the road i was on was an S shape with no street lights or houses. they pulled me over all 3 cop cars speeding up to me with lights on and 1 said he "thought my headlights were out" i never woulda made it if they were out an i have pics proving that the road isnt drivible without lights. said he smelled alc, i recited my abcs ok, failed to walk the line and blew a .14 and had a BAC taken. do i have a defense that i was stopped on an opinion of my headlights and not the way i was driving beacuse i can prove they were on and i think he just made it up so he could pull me over or just messed up seeing my headlights were on and some how 3 cops were just there waiting.
Be prepared for a judge to believe the cops instead of your pictures and the argument that the road is not drivable...
I live in PA. I am newly on probation. It is not for a DUI.
Do the terms of your probation require you to abstain from alcohol use? If the court ordered you not to drink, expect...
I plead not guilty and entered ARD for General Impairment (0.099 BAC) in PA. I will not receive a license suspension because it is the lowest tier of offense. Will my insurance company notice this and will it affect my insurance? I understand they would if my license were suspended, but I wasn't clear on if this will be reported to them because there is no suspension / points.
Things are not generally "reported" to your insurance company. They check your records. Whether they check your court...
He drove to his Ex's house intoxicated and started an argument verbally beating her down with their child home, was asked to leave numerous times but refused. He got physical, the police were called and he took off on foot when the police arrived because he has no license and was drunk, leaving his car In the driveway. They did not catch him but the Ex needed to seek medical attention a few days later and her hand and finger were badly sprained.
The short answer is, "most likely jail" consideraing the probation/parole violation as well as the new charges. He...
