On the night of Thanksgiving Eve, I was pulled over after a police officer said I was idly sitting over the white line on the street at a red light, two intersections in a row. I had a friend in the car who had marijuana with her (I took one hit from a joint, before driving). The officer said he smelled the marijuana in the car, but found nothing, I was asked to perform the sobriety tests and felt I passed them all easily. I had no issues completing any of them. However, I was given a breathalyzer and blew a .14 and was arrested. I had never been arrested before or anything and never had a DUI. In the police report, it says I admitted to smoking from a pipe (which is untrue, because I've never smoked anything from a pipe). Anyway, what kind of penalties am I most likely facing?
Hire an attorney. You are looking at a possible loss of license and significant fines plus jail. You may be eligibke...
on 07/13/2013 I was ticketed for running a stop sign, which I promptly paid off online. Unaware to me, my license had been suspended due to a mistake by PennDot. This past weekend I was pulled over due to the suspended license when the officer smelled alcohol on my breath, resulting in a DUI. I was maintaining the speed limit and staying between the lines the entire time. Could the fact that my license was suspended without any notification (Received no mail from the DMV) and unjustly (as admitted by the district court) help me out of my DUI, since the only reason i was pulled over was for a suspended license? I'm unaware of what my BAC was, as i have yet to receive any mail from the police station. Thank you.
Interesting situation, but I highly doubt that the ONLY reason you were stopped was a suspended license. How did the...
Need some real help with appealing an underage drinking conviction in Columbia county. I talked to one Columbia county lawyer and he basically told me that i could appeal the conviction but i am basically out of luck. I am facing a 2 year license suspension. I know that i was in the wrong but 2 years is a long time and could really mess up the life of someone who commutes to both work and school. any advice would be appreciated
You are on the right track. You need to pay an attorney for his or her work hourly in preparing an appeal for you....
i received an under 21 DUI over the weekend and the first thing i was asked was not for license and registration but instead how much alcohol and marijuana had i used that night. i said none. shortly after i was asked to get out of car and given a PBT it was not until hours later (2+) at the DUI center after my blood was taken that i finally was asked to complete the field sobriety tests in some room. Also, my blood was taken at least 2.5 hours after i was pulled over isnt there some kind of rule about that. im looking for anything that could get my case dismissed my job depends on it!

i am 18 and from PA. this weekend i was pulled over a few hundred feet from my home because of a broken headlight. The officer asked me to step out of the car and breathalyzed me. i believe my bac was close to .14 or so. i was charged with my first under 21 DUI The arresting officer was actually very friendly and helpful. He explained the ARD program to me but i am worried i am not eligible because of 2 underage drinking violations from my past. i am also worried that i will be charged with another Underage drinking on top of the DUI (even though the officer said that wouldn't happen) All in all it was about 2 plus hours until my blood was taken and i have not received those results yet.

I had my first DUI that I was granted ARD for in 2010. I am currently serving 165 day house arrest and 36 month license suspension (I think) for 2 second DUIs. I hadn't yet been sentanced so they were both filed as 2nd offences. Will I still qualify for an OLL? It states "no more than one prior DUI" I believe"
You will not qualify for an OLL. Also, please note that two 2nd DUI convictions + your previous conviction will make...

You need to sit down with an attorney. These are mandatory minimums, both the 3rd DUI and the DUI while suspended....
