Will I have trouble traveling from the US to Ireland (and back again) while on probation for DUI in Pennsylvania?
I am traveling with my three brothers and my parents to Ireland in a little less than 9 weeks. I was sentenced to six months probation for a DUI in Pennsylvania that begin in March and will last until early Septmeber. I am in ARD and this was a misdemeanor not a felony. I contacted the Consulate General of Ireland in NYC and she advised me to contact the Police Dept. in Ireland to inform them of my wish to travle and my schedule. She seemed pretty confident that I will not have any problems. Has anyone had success in traveling to Ireland or abroad under these conditions?
This is a question for an Irish attorney to respond to. You may wish to post it under international law may be someone...
I am a 20 year old male and I was charged with a DUI in Montgomery County, PA (First offense) as well as an underage drinking charge. This is my first offense of any kind. I am a full-time college student and have a part-time job. My Preliminary arrainment and hearing are a month and a half away and I would like to meet with an attorney prior to going to court to discuss my options (ARD, etc.). I am currently living with my parents, however, they are not willing to pay for a private attorney, which I completely understand. Would I be eligible for a public defender based off my finances alone?
You would have to apply for a public defender in Montgomery County to make sure you qualify. Call 610-278-3000 and ask...
I was charged with 75 $ 3802 $$ A1* (lead) DUI: Gen Imp/Inc of Driving Safely- 1st off and 18 $6308 $$, what will happen?
I was recently charged with 75 $ 3802 $$ A1* (lead) DUI: Gen Imp/Inc of Driving Safely- 1st off and 18 $6308 $$ A Purch Etc Alcoh Bev by a Minor in Montgomery County, PA. I am 20 years old and was driving my car after drinking. I got into an accident and hit a street sign and the curb. I was not injured nor was anyone else. Officers arrived and asked me to complete field sobriety tests, after failing the walking test, I was placed under arrest and was taken to the hospital and had blood drawn (no breathalyzer). This is my first offense of any kind with the law. In my summons I was not told my BAC and still do not know what it was, I was only charged with the 2 charges above. What are the potential penalties I face with these charges?
You have some options including applying for ARD, my suggestion is you retain a criminal defense attorney to help you...
How can I get a DUI expunged from my driving record or at least have the major incident down graded?
This was my first offense. There was an accident, but I was rear-ended. I did not cause the accident (other than I stopped for some deer). I was accepted into the ARD program with 6 mos probation, no license suspension and no Drug & Alcohol classes. CRN concluded there was no drinking problem. My insurance company dropped me and the quotes I am receiving are insane!
You will be entitled to expungement once you complete the ARD program. With regard to the insurance issue, they are...
I was arrested for a DUI and I just remembered I took maybe 1.5 mg of Xanax 24-48 hours prior to my blood test.
Do you think it showed up? Quakertown PA. I was arrested for driving under the influence of marijuana
First thing is you should hire an attorney who handles DUI in this area. Secondly, I would not write anything about...
I am just looking for information on the new DUI Court in Montgomery County. I was doing some research to see what my sentencing might be for my charge and found out they have just recently started a DUI court in Montgomery County for all different levels of offenders. I was just wondering if anyone had any info regarding this because I cant find anything else besides the press release on search engines? Thank you very much ahead of time for your time.
I suggest that you contact an experienced Montgomery County DUI lawyer rather than try to represent yourself. The law...
I had an ARD-DUI in PA that I had completed at the time that was waiting to be expunged, which it was, and all charges were dismissed on 4/10/13. The company that I was just hired by was able to view the request made by by HR at my old company on 11/02/2012 and on 01/27/14 at 4:31AM it was viewed and printed. ADP then sent this to me, but the fact they allowed my company to view a report that was not current, and requested by my former company really bothers me and has to violate some portion of the FCRA. As the are not a government agency, I did not furnish a copy of the expungement to them but they are providing false non-public information about me. Who do I call and who do I sue? This may have been preventing me from getting a job for 10-14 months.
The background material is not entirely clear to me, but it is nevertheless clear that your question does not implicate...
