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...
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

First offense. No accident. I was given a Blood Test (not sure why). I had no drugs (other than Tylenol) in my system. I was released via ROR, and an A.R.D. was explained to me before I left jail. I don't know my BAC; is there a way of retrieving this before my trial? If they offer me an A.R.D, and my BAC was .1%+, what are the chances of me spending time in jail/prison? Do other circumstances weigh on the DA or Judge's opinions for hearings like this? For instance I'm a College and Masters Grad. I own a Small Business.

The underage drinking citation was reduced to a disorderly conduct after I went to a few classes. Does this disqualify me for ARD? I was arrested for DUI by the East Whiteland Police Department in Malvern PA.

My husband has two open dui cases while on probation, the cases are back to back and he has a detainer. Our lawyer wants to put both cases in front of his back judge as well as all his accomplishments, he has been paid to start working on getting the detainer lifted. By putting both cases in front the back judge, wouldn't that mean my husband is pleading guilty? My husband wants to try and lift the detainer so he can fight the case on the street. Is the lawyer doing what's best?
Your question indicates that your husband is represented by an attorney. It is improper for another attorney to...
