Looking for a DUI attorney (4th Offense) in the Montgomery County Pennsylvania area, that accepts weekly/monthly payment plans.
I am being charged with my 4th dui in Montgomery County Pennsylvania. As well as driving without an ignition interlock. I am not concerned with the fines that will follow as much as I am avoiding jail time. I do not know if this matters at all but I live out of state in Albany, NY. I have 4 kids to support so staying out of jail is a huge concern to me and my family. I have just recently returned to work after a few months of being absent, so I do not have money saved up to afford an attorney outright. I am this week going back to full time which I make about 700 a week. I did refuse the chemical test so I am sure that this is going to be charged in the 3rd tier as .16 or above. I have seen multiple options in my research such as drug court, alcohol court and the IPP program.
There are many excellent DUI defense attorneys from PA on this website, and you should search for a few of them, then...
First 3rd tier DUI as a juvenile 6 years ago, just got arrested for my first adult 3rd tier DUI, will this be treated as a 2nd?
I was arrested at the age of 16 in Bucks County PA for a third tier DUI (blew a .17). I completed probation, classes, etc and had the conviction expunged from my criminal record. I just got arrested in Philadelphia for my first adult 3rd tier DUI, this time for drugs. I am 22 now, my question is is there any way this can be treated as a first offense? If not, what are my chances of getting either house arrest or probation over jail time?
It would only be a first offense if the DA doesn't find out about the juvenile case. They typically run your driving...
Will a first DUI charge & arrest that was expunged after completion of ARD in PA affect my application for Osteopathic licensure
No prior arrests anywhere. As a first year osteopathic medical student, should I disclose the arrest for DUI to my school? Student manual does not detail any policy of disclosure. My car was totalled, BAC=.179, minor bruising to myself and passenger wife's collarbone were only injuries. Municipal tree was only other property involved. Arraignment judge said I will be granted ARD at pretrial in october. Is this going to affect me in my application process to receive osteopathic medical license? I read that expungement is not always thorough, that FBI/NCIC not always comply, and arrest can be retained and revealed on background check. I'm in first month and year of DO school. Next background check is winter of 2nd year for rotations in 3rd year. It should be dismissed & expunged by then.
No duty to disclose in handbook... do not disclose. ARD is not a conviction. Questions on applications should only ask...
Second DUI case in Philadelphia and just did a guilty plea. I had an ARD in Chester County 4 years ago and successfully completed the ARD program. For this Philly offense will it be considered my 1st offense because I did ARD for the other one?
This would be considered a 2nd offense within ten years. Hire an experienced DUI attorney to go over your options as...
This may sound cliche but I was at a bar having some drinks trying to meet women, apparently I had she lived in a different county then me as I could not drive she was eager to drive my German car and drove herself home unfortunately I did not think it through as to how I would get home. I fell asleep during the drive and upon awakening the mystery lady was gone I moved to the driver seat because of the 20 way power seat and went to sleep with the keys in closed console. I awaken an additional few hours later to a officer knocking of my window and was arrested for a DUI. My question is what was his probable cause for approaching me and how can the state prove beyond a reasonable doubt I operated the vehicle when even the initial report says the engine was cold. Thank you for your replies.
he didn't need probable cause to approach you. A passed out driver in a car may need help, may be dead or something...
In Pennsylvania whole blood got to be tested in order to sustain a DUI conviction and not the supernatant portion?
Recent decisions of this Court have "made it clear that supernatant blood alcohol test results are invalid unless converting evidence is provided to establish the alcohol content of whole blood. We explained that where blood alcohol testing is performed on only a portion of whole blood, such as plasma, serum, or a supernatant sample, it requires conversion to establish the correlative whole blood test results." Commonwealth v. Haight, 50 A.3d 137, 141. If the person supernatant blood was only tested and even if the jury had convicted the person for DUI and the supernatant portion of the blood was tested, this cannot sustain a DUI right? What happens if the person has appealed their PCRA petition and the decision from the Superior Court came back affirmed, what is the next step of process?
I'm going to address the last, procedural question you've posed. If my understanding is correct that the Superior Court...
was in auto accident
In most states, you get credit for good time. Talk to you attorney and he or she should know the answer.
