Canonsburg Law

I am charged with driving under DUI suspension in washington county pennsylvania.. I cannot afford a lawyer and i was denied a public defender because they think i make too much money.. I am just wondering what i need to say or do in court to reduce this charge because it carries a mandatory 60 days in jail and i cannot afford to go to jail.. I will lose everything, my job, my car, my family. i don't know what to do and i am terrified, please help!!
Speak to some attorneys in Washington County. Many will work out a payment plan for you.
My friends parnts were at the site. It's their car. I was positive for alcohol. I'm 17. If her parents say it's ok to search the CAR,can they search MY BAG when I did NOT agree to it? They just asked if it was mine.
In general, an officer would not be permitted to search a purse in a situation like this one without getting consent...
This is what happened. My friend was driving n drank. I was in passenger seat. Got pulled over bc my friend ran over a curb n there were 2 911 calls. Got pulled over. We both had a pbt done n showed we drank. The alcohol was in my bag. I went to the police station. They never took my blood. I didn't smell drunk (I know for a fact) even though one said I did. And I did not act drunk n they did not see me drink it. They did not arrest or read me my rights (i don't know if that matters). With all this, should I plead not guilty since a pbt is not admissable in court? HOWEVER, If I did that, couldn't they say it was in my bag? (but they never said they charged me for possesion,just underage) I'm 17.
In MN a PBT is admissible in an underage drinking case and might be in your jurisdiction as well. I don't know....
also 2 months after my friend was arrested, my truck was totaled in a unrelated incident, does this affect my record or just theirs?
The DL-21 form is the form sent by the clerk of courts to Penndot notifying it of a conviction under the motor vehicle...
My son has just been sentenced for his 2nd DUI in the state of PA, and the punishment is 30 days house arrest and 1 year suspended license. My question has to do with the implantation of the sentence, it has been a week since he was sentenced but his license has not been suspended yet and they told him that it would be 6 to 8 week before his house arrest starts so in the meantime he can't do anything about finding a job (the paper he worked for let him go because he needs to drive as part of his reporting duties) with the house arrest sitting out there, and the longer it take for the suspended license to start the longer it will take to get it behind him. Is there any recourse that we can take to get the punishment on the clock faster so he can put this behind him?

My daughter was vacationing in North Carolina with her husband and his family in 1998 and she received a DUI taking her husband home from a bar. She had had a few beers herself. In the fall we took her back to North Carolina (we live in Pa.) to her hearing. After an 8 hour wait she was fined and told she couldn't drive in that state for one year. Recently after living in Ohio for a few years she moved back to Pa. and went to get a Pa. licenses. They said she could not get it until she contacted a lawyer in North Carolina and paid this lawyer his fee and also pay a fee of $250 for a release so she can get a licenses again. What I don't understand is how can they do this when she paid her fine in full and did everything that was required of her. They put a hold a her receiving any license
Perhaps there was a corresponding criminal case that she did not appear for properly? Most DUI offenses involve a...
