My 20 yr old daughter got a DUI in NY, but lives in PA and has a PA license. In the preliminary trial, NY suspended her license, in NY. She was also to sign up for the ARD program, but didn't know if she could do it in PA and if that would be acceptable in NY.
Since your daughter was charged in New York, the DUI charge must be handled and resolved there. However, if your...
A few weeks ago I was drinking with my friends. their apartment is a duplex and i was walking to the backside and one of my friends was burning boxes. I had a beer in my hand and about 10 in my bookbag but i wasnt anywhere near drunk. cops came to tell us to put out the fire and wrote down our information. one of the kids(who admitted to living at the house) lied about his name and took off. the cops told my other friend and i if we helped them out and wrote statements they would help us we were completely honest and told them everything. what exactly is going to happen now?
The length of time can vary. Sometimes citations will be written on the spot and handed to you by the officer. Other...
I was recently taken in for a suspected DUI charge, the blood work needs to come back first before I can receive a court date. The blood work, paper work, and charges wont be sent to me until after I return back to my command. I have been told to contact the District Magistrate about this issue. Is there really anything the Magistrate can do before the blood work and charges are written up?
You have to appear in court at least 2 times for a DUI. If you do nothing and do not appear then there will be a bench...
Last night I got an underage, refused breathalyzer, police said I would be arrested and would have to blow there, what do I do?
Got into argument with friend so I left and as soon as I left the police were there. They kept asking me questions, and they checked to see who i was and made me blow in a breathalyzer. At first I refused the breathalyzer, but they told me I could refuse but I would be arrested and would have to use a breathalyzer at the police station anyways. They made me take the breathalyzer several times because I was not "blowing right". When I blew i was twice above the legal limit. So they gave me an underage and said sarcastically I could keep the mouth piece as a "souvenir". What can I do to fight this? This is the second time i would be getting an underage I just got my license back and now they said I lost it for a year, but i need my license to get to and from work! I need help.
Get an attorney. There are good defenses to underage drinking cases even with breathalyers.
According to § 3806 of the Vehicle Code - Prior offenses; a "prior offense" is based on the conviction date of that offense. I have had 3 previous DUIs in the past. I incurred two DUI's in 2001 within months of each other. I was granted ARD for the first one (before I got the 2nd one), and I got another a few months later. They revoked my ARD and resentenced me on the first DUI, and sentenced me on the 2nd DUI on the same day circa August 2003. I got another DUI after that and plead guilty in 2004. I got another DUI in 2/13, and the district attorney is charging me with a 4th offense DUI. Can anyone help me clarify how the district attorney is charging me with #4?
The dates that matter here are date of offense and date of conviction. The ten-year look back begins on the date of...
A friend just got a DUI which will be the 3rd one, but only 2nd in a ten year time frame. She refused the blood test also .
What kind of sentencing could she possibly be looking at?
First off, your friend should retain an attorney as soon as possible to start working on her case. In Pennsylvania,...
