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
Although PA has adopted unified practice rules, consequences and potential resolutions vary widely from county to...
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...
I was charged with DUI in PA 2 months ago. I will probably take the ARD program deal. My license was not suspended at the time of arrest and probably not be suspended as my bac was 0.081. I checked my driving history and it does not show the DUI arrest. I am wondering if it will show anything if I get into this program. Will the court inform DMV about my dui if I get into the ARD program ?
I am not licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania. My understanding is that the ARD program acts to bar the record...

Hard to answer unless there are more facts. Why was he held in contempt? Sometimes a judge will set a purge amount to...
I got a DUI when I was 19 with a BAC of .07 and did ARD. I got another DUI in may of 2014 and it was tier 2 2nd offense. I could not afford a lawyer so I had to use the public defender and it was a huge mess. I am the sole provider of my 3 year old son. I have a 3 year PFA against his dad, that includes my son on it. I asked for house arrest instead of jail for the mandatory 30 days and they refused. Bucks County later said that they would have done house arrest if they case would have been transfered to them. Since I have already been sentenced in Philly, is there anyway to get transfered?
Very doubtful. However, contact a lawyer in the jurisdiction in which you were sentenced, and maybe he can try to do a...
My first DUI was in 2012 in Montgomery County and my probation just ended May 2014. But i got charged with a 2nd DUI on Thanksgiving of this year (2014). I'm just scared because i'm graduating May 2015 and I want to get employed to a good company. I also work to pay my own rent and bills so I don't want to lose my license or go to jail. I'm not positive, but i think my BAC will be between .08 and .09. Please if anyone can help i would appreciate it. Also, are police officers allowed to make you take off glasses when doing field tests?
