How long do people in general have to wear a scram bracelet following a violation of probation?
I know a friend who violated his probation by drinking a few beers a day before he was called in for a random egt test and tested positive. His lawyer got the judge to lift his bond and they increased his AA meetings and put on a scram bracelet. He goes to court in the beginning of next month but he was wondering how long he could possibly have the financial burden of paying for the scram?
Until the judge says so, until the probation is terminated, or until he gets incarcerated for violating his probation.
If my Ohio drivers license is going to be suspended, but is not yet suspended, can I obtain an out-of-state license?
I will be moving out of state here in the next few days, and since my license is still valid up until near the end of this month I was curious. Would I legally be able to obtain a license out of state, and if so, would it stay valid or be suspended as well? Also, on the notice of suspension it has both FRA Suspension for 3 years and a Mandatory Suspension for 3 months. Does this mean the actual suspension is only 3 months and for the rest of the time I have to carry SR-22 insurance, or am I unable to drive the entire time?

Underage drinking - Penndot blocks OH license 22 years later.
Recently I went to renew my Ohio driver's license and to my surprised was told that PA has placed a block on my OH license for an incident that occured 22 years ago. The incident was under age drinking on a college campus. I paid all costs/fines at the time and left the university. However, PennDot is telling me now that my license should have been suspended and they show no record of any credits/time for this suspension. I'm not and have never had a PA driver's license. Also, previous 4+ times that I renewed my license never had a problem. Questions. 1. Can PA suspend my OH license? 2. What legal recourse do I have to get block removed? Thanks

Will a DUI conviction travel from one state to another?

When I change my licsense over from an Alabama one to an Ohio one, will that DUI from Alabama still show up on my Ohio driving record? And will it show up during background checks on my driving history?
