Was I victim of entrapment? Underage drinking
I was recently involved in an incident where i was a passenger in a vehicle of which the driver got a DUI. When asked if i could drive the vehicle home, the officer said straight to my face "Don't worry youre not in any trouble". After which I admitted I had a little to drink hours before. Then he came back and asked if i wanted to take a PBT reading. My exact words were "Do I have to?" and he said no. So I refused. As the incident went on me and another passenger were told to find a ride home, and no talk of being in trouble or getting an underage was made. Now 2-3 weeks later I recieve a citation in the mail for underage drinking. WTF. This would be my second offense. I need help
Unless the officer told you to drink, it's not entrapment. The evidence they have against you is your admission....

DUI / ARD and getting License back. Lehigh County.
I am currently on and have been for some time on ARD for a first time DUI in Lehigh County, PA. I also am on Bucks County probation mainly for a hefty restitution remaining at 46k. I've been enrolled in college since the DUI and have been supported by my wife as I couldn't drive. My problem is my wife has been planning to divorce me for some time and now has moved me out of the house. I need to get to work to make any kind of money, yet I can't get my license back until I pay lehigh a bunch of money, and then I worry cause I can't pay my restitution in Bucks. They have me in a pincer here, a literal vice. How am I to pay anybody anything if I can't at least get to work. Is there anything a lawyer can do to help this? I don't know what to do?
Yes, you're in a hard place. Don't believe much can be done for you but you can hire a local DUI lawyer for a...
I passed out in the Mcdonalds drive thru after drinking at the bar and woke up to a police officer, I had a 1.08 BAC level.
This is my first, DUI offense, I had a CDL, is there anything I can do to avoid going to jail and having my license suspended, I would surrender my CDL if necessary. The only thing in my criminal history is a summary for harassment. when I was arrested for DUI 2 days ago I was driving my friends car its a stick shift car, the emergency break was on and out of gear while we waited to place an order. I did cooperate with the police with everything they asked me to do, I didn't hesitate to any test.
