I received my third DUI in PA. The last one was 12 years ago in 2002. Will the long past DUI's affect the current, in any way?
One-car accident, no other person or property involved. Will the relatively longer, past DUI's have any affect on the current one? Will the current DUI be treated as the third or will the past be excluded? Thank you
I'm going to change your practice area to DUI so you will get some answers from DUI attorneys in your area.
First time offense DUI: two options would be ARD or plea (wouldn't lose license but would be on my record). True?
Teir: highest bac content Had a consultation with a lawyer and he said the statement above. He said most take ARD but if you plea you wouldn't lose your license, but stay in your record. Didn't mention anything about jail time.
The minimal background facts presented leave me with only one response. I don't agree with the supposed opinion of a...
2nd offense DWI and was sentences 3Mo of house arrest, 18 L loss, and 6-12mo probation. Is it possible to get an early release?
Please help me I want to get opinions for professionals. I was at all my hearings and passed all drug tests and have been clean of drugs and alcohol since the incident. I also have about 15-25 signed IDRC slips from aa/na meetings that I attended does any of this help my case and is it possible to get out on good behavior ? Has anyone gotten out on good behavior before? Also I live in NJ but thankfully have family in P.A so I'm staying with them. I've served 57 days of my 90 day sentence and it's hard to find a job and I only been outside once for about an hour on a job interview but couldn't get it because I don't have my SSC, But I've shown I'm at least trying to get a job and trying to change for the better. So is it possible to get an early release of my house arrest ?
Your question is dependent on the law of the state where you were convicted. You mention New Jersey (NJ) and...
In June 05 & Dec. 06 I had DUIs in PA. I did my time & completed probation. However, I've never legally had a drivers license when I got both DUIs & still to present day do not. I hadn't been in any trouble until approx. May 2010. In 2010 I was in NJ & was pulled over for "taking my seat belt off in a parking lot". So, I was ticketed for driving on a DUI suspended license. Would this- 1. Be considered my 1st driving offense bc it happened in NJ & therefore only driving on a suspended license & not DUI suspended bc the DUI was actually in PA? 2. Or Is it DUI suspended in PA/NJ even though it was a DUI in '05 & '06? I haven't gone back to court since 2010 & must take care of this NJ ticket/warrant but am afraid of jail bc of my daughter, wife, & career. What am I facing? Jail?
In PA, your license will be DUI suspended until it is reinstated after a DUI conviction. When you got the DUI in 2005,...
Will a DUI "conviction" be removed from a PENNDOT record after successful completion of Fast Track ARD and expungement procedure
Had a DUI in PA in 2007. Completed all court prescribed actions for fast track ARD in Monroe County. Have all documentation. Never had expungement petition filed. Moved to New Mexico. They have a law that if a person has a reported DUI conviction anywhere in U.S. in last 10 years person must get ignition interlock license for one year with SR-22 insurance. Was told that if an individual successfully completes ARD and has expungement procedure done ALL records pertaining to offense would be removed from public view administratively (PENNDOT), and judicially, (Courts). The only thing would be PENNDOT would keep record internally for 10 years for enhancement of a second DUI charge. Conflicting answers I have gotten. Does expungement wipe PENNDOT records?
You're dealing with conflicting answers because you're dealing with two seperate states and how they're going to deal...
