Is there anything in your sentence/parole that keeps you from going? Like following up with a parole officer in person?...
Can I have my case thrown out for underage drinking when I was apprehended, tackled, and cuffed by officers.
I was walking with a friend down the street where apparently a party was to be busted. We did not attend the party and were walking away from the house when three officers came from behind a car and ran at us without announcing who they were. I put my hands up to defend my face as I thought I was getting jumped and was then tackled and cuffed by two officers. I was told I was very close to getting tazed. My friend pushed the cop away from him but wasn't cuffed. We were not aware of the cops getting out of their car or them running after us until they were right behind us. I was questioned and admitted to drinking as I laid cuffed. Their reasoning for apprehending me was for resisting arrest when I had no idea there were officers in the area. We did not run from the police either.
Your facts suggest a violation of Miranda if the police had you cuffed and asked you questions while you were cuffed...
Whats my charge when I turn myself in for a 17 yr old warrant??
I was charged 17 yrs ago with a DUI. I was moving to Fl. in 3 days, with my young children. At that time, I was running away from a abusive man. I was granted permission to leave the state as long as I followed up in the state of Fl. I did not follow up, and have been recently picked up by the Md. Sheriff office ( I moved back to Md. after 5 yrs in Fl.)and was incarcerated for 36. The judge allowed me to pay a cash bond, and I have 7 days to turn myself in to Pa. I am ready to this and am wondering what might happen to me. I have a clean record, and have turned my life around. Please help me so that i will not go in there blind.
You first have to answer the original charge of DUI, that will not have gone away simply because you fled the state....
Dui conviction vs Dui (Ard Disposition)
I have a dui controlled substance charge. I likely qualify for ard because I have no prior misdeameanor or felony convictions. While on ard, I have to wait a year to get it expunged from my record. I have a bachelor's degree and I am driving myself crazy thinking how this charge mat affect me finding a decent job for the time being. I know ultimately every employer is different but I feel it would be more acceptable if it was a simple alcohol dui but no legit company wants a druggie even if it's not a conviction but a ard disposition. Am I thinking too much into this a shot just apply for jobs because at the end of the day it's not a conviction (and never will be) and jobs only care about convictions? Or is this something I should genuinely be concern ed about? Or is this
Employers care more about JUST a conviction, they care about a course of conduct. Thus, even it's imperative you do...
Do I need a DUI attorney?
I was recently arrested in Butler County, PA for a first time DUI. I have absolutely no criminal record, and was wondering if attorney representation is required for acceptance into the ARD program?
Yes, you absolutely must have an attorney. It is required. In fact, I have represented clients for DUI in Bradford...
Will I be charged with first DUI, or second DUI?
I recently received a DUI. But I received my first DUI a little over 9 years ago and completed my ARD program. I can remember my attorney telling me that she would have it expunged and I'm not sure if she did or not. When I went into the Pa courts portal to look at the Magisterial District Court, Court Summary, it does not show my first DUI, but all of the other citations that I was charged with when I got the first DUI because I had a MVA. It shows that this is my first offense. Yet, when I downloaded my DMV record, it shows the DUI from 2006.My question is this: since DUI that I received recently is showing as my first offense through the Magisterial District Court Summ., but I did have one in 2006, will this be counted as my first DUI or second?

Pennsylvania 1st DUI ARD eligibility requirements?
I am a 29 yr old female and recently received a dui in Butler county, Pennsylvania. The night of my dui my BAC was rather high at approx .26. I'm concerned over my eligibility for entrance into the ARD program. Granted this is my first DUI, but I received an underage drinking when I was 19, and also was arrested on an assault charge approx 5 years ago against my previous boyfriend. The charges were ultimately dropped, therefore my assumption is they will have no bearing on the judges decision to offer ARD. Other then the two above mentioned issues I've had a clean record with the exception of a few traffic violations (speeding). My last concern has to do with the scram ankle bracelet. Is this something that the judge would typically issue for a first dui? ARD eligible?
