2nd Citation for underage drinking in 6 months.
It was at a concert and it was liquor enforcement. They asked me what I drank and I said vodka. I had neither my license nor alcohol on me and on the citation I received it said I was over 18 with possession. Can i get out of this because they got my information wrong and I did not actually have anything on me? Thanks a lot I appreciate the feedback.
Your admission that you drank vodka does not help, but without evidence of actual possession, there are some weaknesses...
Hi, I am wondering how to proceed on a public drunkennes citation in PA. What should I plead?
The citation is just for public drunkennes and it says the defendant was manifestly under the the influence of alcohol in a public place. Is there a real possiblity to be sent to prison for this? (I have read you could get imprisoned for up to 90 days). Also, is there a way to ask for something like community service to solve this issue? thanks

2nd Dui PA - is Plea Bargaining Possible
I completed ARD from a 2010 dui. I received another dui last week. Can a dui be plea bargained to a lesser charge in PA. Also, is there anything, besides finding a lawyer I should be doing now?
I would recommend talking to an experienced DUI defense lawyer in your area that can review the facts of your case and...
How much more will Dui under controlled substance charge affect employment over regular dui?
I was recently charged with dui controlled substance in pa. I do qualify for the Ard program which will eventually wipe my record clean but I have to wait until a year and a half for that to happen. 1) How much will charge (not conviction) hurt my chances for employment over a regular dui? 2) I have a bachelor's degree from Temple University and many skills. Is that something that could level the playing field to a potential employer with someone who has no arrest record?
There's just no way to answer that, it is applies and oranges. Every employer is different.

How much will dui under controlled substance affect employment?
I was charged with a dui under controlled substance a few months back in PA. I do qualify for the ARD program but I have to wait a long time before it's expunged. My question is how will it look to an employer in the time being? Is it as bad as let's say simple possession or possession with intent to sell? For all an employer know it could have been an over the counter drug in my case. I feel like my charge is a little more spinnable than the others. In my case it will never be a conviction if I complete the program. 1) How much do you think it will affect me in the next year? 2) Should I disclose it and make some lie about it being a prescription drug?
Let me preface this answer by saying that I do not practice in PA, so I do not know of the program to which you are...
