I was arrested a few weeks ago for suspicion of DUI. My lawyer is getting me into the ARD program, which he told me will not result in a DUI conviction on my criminal record (correct me if I am wrong). I was just given a job offer as a physical therapist assistant for a skilled nursing facility. Employment is pending upon a drug test and background check. I have no priors on my record whatsoever. I just tried to access my criminal background check and it is pending. If I haven't been convicted of a DUI, and likely should not, is this going to affect my opportunity for employment? Is it possible that my background check will come up as "no record" since I technically have not been convicted?

Hi, My brother was arrested for his second DUI back in 2009. He was notified by PennDot (PA department of transportation) early 2010 that his drivers license was suspended for 18 months. He didn't appear to court but served about a week jail time in August 2013. He just completed 9 months of parole time and is looking to restore his drivers license and his life in general. The restoration requirements letter he received from Penn Dot lists all the steps he needs to take to restore his drivers license. At this point is it necessary to hire a lawyer to help him restore his drivers license or should he follow the steps stated on the restoration requirements letter retrieved from Penn Dot? Thank you for your help P.S.He doesn't know English all that well Sincerely, A concerned sister
Provided your brother turned his license in when suspended, he needs to follow the steps on the letter. Good luck!

I had not been drinking or under the influence at all. I have a prescription for Vyvanse 50mg which I take everyday in the morning, which I took about 10:30 that day and the crash happened at about approximately 7:45. My main question and concern is that could I be in charged for a DUI when I took my Vyvanse at 10:30 and I have a prescription?
I would strongly suggest that you hire a qualified DUI attorney. You can still be charged with a DUI even if you only...
PA has not said anything about an interlock device, or the DUI at all. Now my contact from IDRC has told me that I'm currently no longer on the revoked list, and that I can pay a 100 dollar restoration fee online. If I pay this fee online, and have no need to physically restore my license with the DMV (since I'm a licensed PA driver) do I still need to place the interlock on my vehicle?
Yes because NJ will suspend your license and driving abilities in NJ and will report to PA.
