Pennsylvania 1st DUI ARD eligibility requirements?
I am a 29 yr old female and recently received a dui in Butler county, Pennsylvania. The night of my dui my BAC was rather high at approx .26. I'm concerned over my eligibility for entrance into the ARD program. Granted this is my first DUI, but I received an underage drinking when I was 19, and also was arrested on an assault charge approx 5 years ago against my previous boyfriend. The charges were ultimately dropped, therefore my assumption is they will have no bearing on the judges decision to offer ARD. Other then the two above mentioned issues I've had a clean record with the exception of a few traffic violations (speeding). My last concern has to do with the scram ankle bracelet. Is this something that the judge would typically issue for a first dui? ARD eligible?

Will I be removed from ARD
I am currently in the ARD program and have been since October 7th. Part of the requirements to get through it was 25 hours of community service and have proof of that within 30 days of completion of the ARD program. I completed those hours but made a mistake and thought I was finished on April 7th instead of March 7th. I just received a letter in the mail for a ARD re-hearing for failure to complete community service. Again, I completed my community service I just made a mistake of when it was due is there anything I can do to avoid the hearing and if not is there anyway to not get removed from the program because of my mistake
Hard to say. Since you did finish the community service requirement there is a reasonable chance they will just give...

If we had a sober drive and ended up crashing because of the snow can i still get a DUI
It was my boyfriend me and our driver. The driver had slid into an icy patch. We had a ride come pick the driver up to go get his truck to pull us out. My boyfriend and i stayed with my car. Someone ended up calling the police. So they showed up, no evidence of my boyfriend driving.

This is a question of fact that will ultimately have to be decided by a judge or jury. However if you can provide some...
