ARD and applying for RN license
3 years ago I got a DUI and was put into the ARD program. I am now applying to nursing schools and hope to eventually apply for my RN license with the PA board of nursing. I saw my lawyer a few months ago about getting it expunged and after putting my name and my docket number in the Phila. court system, nothing came up. He said there was no record of my arrest and that it must've been expunged already. The union I am in with my current job did pay all my legal expenses but at the time I was told I would be financially responsible for the expungement. He said they may have covered it because at one time they did that. I ran my record through the PATCH website and it came back with no record. Would it show up for and FBI fingerprint check? I just don't know whether or not to disclose it.
An additional source to check on expungement is the court itself. Contact the court where the conviction occurred and...
What will happen at my ARD hearing?
This week I will be attending my ARD hearing for a DUI in Montgomery County. I have completed All the pre-conditions (Saftey school, CRN, Community service) and will have my license with me ready to turn in. The only condition I will not have completed is payment of my costs and fees. Based on the fact I completed everything else, would the court allow me to be accepted into ARD and then put me on a payment plan for my fees? I'm not sure if this would hurt my chances of getting admitted into ARD
Usually they will allow you to go on a payment plan.
I recieved an underage drinking charge and I blew .00 twice and then blew .03 after about 30-45 minutes. Can I fight this?
I am 19. Thinking the officer would not believe me if I told him I wasn't drinking I told him that I had a beer thinking he would cut us some slack for being cooperative more likely. Also they didn't inform us of our rights.
Absolutely. Best not to go at it alone though. Having an attorney with you will likely allow you to work out...
Was my rights violated on this DUI charge?
I pulled into my hotel complex, police pulled behind me and told me I didn't put on my turn signal. He then asked why I was there. I said I'm staying at the hotel. He said my eyes looked like I was drinking and to come take test. I said why? I did nothing wrong and I'm not intoxicated and feel unsafe and profiled.I said no. They through me in the car, handcuffed me, forced me to give blood at hospital, forced me to breath in breath device at the station, gave 2 completely different # as I breathed consecutive times, then threw me in cell. They read me no rights and ignored me when I asked to contact my attorney or spouse. After an hour or so they let me go and gave me my license etc.and said I was .04
You very possibly have a case. The turn signal violation, unless fabricated, gave the officer reasonable suspicion to...
Can they charge me with a dui if I was fleeing some one trying to kill me?
I'm in Pa. I was charged with a dui after I recieved a beating so horrific by my boyfriend that I had 2 broken vertebrae and I was hospitalized. My boyfriend and I had gone out and had some drinks. We came home and his bipolar kicked in and he started viciously beating me. once he had me on the ground he repetedly kicked me in the back head and neck that lead to a concussion, 2 fractured vertebrae and a massive amount of bruising. As soon as he stopped to throw up I ran to my truck. my intentions were to hide my self in my truck on the other side of our massive complex while I assessed my situation. I was half pulled out of the parking spot when I was stopped. I was taken to a trauma center by ambulance. They drew blood with out my consent. Can they punish me for saving my own life?
The unfortunate answer is yes they can... And often do. The important thing is often prosecutors will look to resolve...
Who is the best possible attorney against PennDot?
I lost my license originally for 2.5 years but they claimed to never have received my ID and has made me wait now 4 years and still have another year.
There is no 'Best' possible attorney who handles Penn DOT matters. There are a lot of good attorneys who handle Traffic...
It's been 6 months since I was arrested for DUI
I was arrested in Aug 14 I had 4 Preliminary court dates all rescheduled by the cop. The last one was Dec 14. I haven't gotten a reschedule date yet and its Feb 15. When I look it up online my docket sheet says Diposition-Dimissed Case-Closed the filer was the Judge. I haven't received notice of this in the mail. I don't know what to think. I'm wondering what are the chances of them reopening the case and refile. It doesn't say with or with prejudice. It just says dismissed and closed !!!
It is not that uncommon for there to be multiple continuances and rescheduling; however, 4 continuances by one side is...
