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
Although PA has adopted unified practice rules, consequences and potential resolutions vary widely from county to...
2nd Dui PA - is Plea Bargaining Possible

Dui conviction vs Dui (Ard Disposition)
I have a dui controlled substance charge. I likely qualify for ard because I have no prior misdeameanor or felony convictions. While on ard, I have to wait a year to get it expunged from my record. I have a bachelor's degree and I am driving myself crazy thinking how this charge mat affect me finding a decent job for the time being. I know ultimately every employer is different but I feel it would be more acceptable if it was a simple alcohol dui but no legit company wants a druggie even if it's not a conviction but a ard disposition. Am I thinking too much into this a shot just apply for jobs because at the end of the day it's not a conviction (and never will be) and jobs only care about convictions? Or is this something I should genuinely be concern ed about? Or is this
Employers care more about JUST a conviction, they care about a course of conduct. Thus, even it's imperative you do...

Will DUI controlled substance charge be a barrier to finding employment with Bachelors Degree?
I have a Bachelors Degree from Temple University. I think I have a good chance of getting ARD with no prior misdeameanor or felony convictions on my record. My concern is for the next year and a half how will the charge look to a potential employer. I'm a minority so my odds of getting a job in my field is lower without a criminal charge according to (http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2014/08/06/the-job-market-tightens-but-new-journalism-grads-remain-upbeat/) I know most jobs only ask for convictions but how much do you think the charge will be a barrier from me finding a job.
With no disrespect intended, I think you are asking the wrong people about the future employment ramifications of your...
How long will it take me to get a CRN evaluation?
I have a dui and qualify for ARD. I need to have my CRN evaluation by May 10th. I was going to call first thing Monday morning (April 27th) and schedule it for May 8th. Do you think almost 2 weeks is enough time to fit me in. I believe its only 20 minutes worth of questions so I would like to be believe that I can be squeezed in. I sent an email today stating who I was and when I wanted to schedule and I also left a voice mail because theyre closed on weekends so they will receive it first thing Monday. I am still going to call Monday and schedule it verbally but I just paranoid that theyre going to be so booked that they cant squeeze me in by May 8th. The lady who I spoke to runs the evaluation said that it doesn't take that long. Do you think I can be squeezed in by May 8th
It's possible, just remember there are several facilities all over Pennsylvania that perform this evaluation try...
