Is an ARD program in PA accepted in NY?
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...
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.
How long does it take for the police to send an underage drinking citation?
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...
How do I proceed with a DUI charge if I am stationed overseas?
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...
I finished an 8 ounce strawbarita 930pm Thursday. How long would it take to clear for any test or breathalyzer
I finished an 8 ounce strawbarita on Thursday at 930pm. How long would it take to pass a breathalyzer or any kind of urine screen
Unfortunately, there is no clear cut answer. It will depend on your body weight, height, size, what you ate that day, etc...
A family member was charged with DUI, a friend recommended ARD for first offense. Do I need a laywer for this?
A family member was recently charged with 75 § 3802 §§ D2* (DUI) and 75 § 3309 §§ 1 because he accidentally took too much of his prescribed medication. We have not received anything in the mail yet but on PA state website it says "Awaiting Preliminary Hearing". A friend was saying we could do the ARD program to remove the charge from record since it's a first offense but I am unsure if this is a simple process or if a lawyer is needed. Unfortunately, funds are very limited
Absolutely. Often times having an attorney is a prerequisite to being accepting into the ARD program. If funds are...
