Dui 2nd offense with warrant
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...
Can I get a DUI charge if not arrested?
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...
Can I still get charged with dui?
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.
DUI's are usually commenced by Summons not arrest warrant. A summons commands your appearance in Court but does not...
Dui pulled over for no headlights but i had them on
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...

Does Pleading guilty to 'Refusal to give breath sample' in NJ have suspension impact on PA license?
I am currently fighting a case in NJ Municipal court for 1st time DUI and Refusal charge and while my attorney in NJ is preparing the case to dismiss both charges, I would like to specifically know if pleading guilty to just Refusal and getting DUI dismissed would have any impact on my PA drivers license. Reading on the PA DMV site, it is clear that a 1st time DUI conviction in NJ results in no suspension of PA license per rule revised in 2004, it also does not include refusal in the list of violations that result in suspension per linked PDF here: Just wanted to get confirmation on the refusal question specifically. Please advise. I have a clean driving record on my PA license.
Your Pennsylvania license will not be suspended for refusal in New Jersey.
Looking for advice as to how I should proceed with back credit for DUI sus. where I did not receive credit for lic. surrendered.
License expired on 8/2009. Had an issue with renewing and took until 10/2009 to which I was given a photo card for new picture. Arrested for DUI on 6/2010. Sentenced on 2/2011 and surrendered D/L (expired as I never went to get photo with photo card which had expired on 12/2009) although I did not have expired photo card because it had expired already. 1 yr suspension. Received second arrest on DUI and also driving on DUI suspension. I had no licence or ID to turn in and clerk just made note on his paperwork. Received 18 month suspension plus one year interlock in 2012. Met all requirements by courts and thought 12/2014 was reinstatement. Went online to penndot one month before reinstatement date and found that a DL16lc was needed. Have all supporting Docs. Now states 2018 I get it back?
