I got a DUI & have to do 6 months of probation. It was my first offense & I was wondering if I would be prohibited from drinking alcohol & if I will not be allowed to go to the bars even if I do not drink. I'm not an alcoholic so I would be able to go out & not drink & I passed my evaluation.
You can't have any measurable amount of alcohol in your body if you drive. Here, some judges prohibit any type of...
I am a pa resident who was recently in Florida on vacation. During that time I was arrested and charged with a dui. My bac was over .15. As a part of my plea agreement I have pleaded guilty to criminal dui over .15 and will have my drivers liscence suspended for 6 months among other consequences My attorney in Florida says Pennsylvania will suspend my liscence. However I have discussed this with a few police officers in Pennsylvania who believe penn dot will not suspend since this is my first dui. But it will be on my pa record. I'm confused and concerned Will my pa liscence be suspended? Should I retain a pa attorney to protect my interests here in pittsburgh? Input is appreciated
There is likely nothing that a local attorney can do. Either PA is going to see and respect Florida decision or they...

If the officer can testify to the fact that you showed signs of impairment due to marijuana and that it affected your...
He did have a small amount of "spice" and a pipe on him. Was taken for a blood test. What will happen now? 1st offense. Thank you!
Typically, a first time offender will get probation, but there are many consequences beyond the criminal case. You need...
My daughter had a dui and she opted for ARD. The ARD requirements are complete and the record has been removed from the common pleas court on the Unified justice system website but still shows on the magisterial district court website. Will that be removed also and if so, when? Thanks.
Hi, you need to have a criminal attorney file an expungment petition to have it completely cleared off the court record...
I was charged with DUI in PA 2 months ago. I will probably take the ARD program deal. My license was not suspended at the time of arrest and probably not be suspended as my bac was 0.081. I checked my driving history and it does not show the DUI arrest. I am wondering if it will show anything if I get into this program. Will the court inform DMV about my dui if I get into the ARD program ?
I am not licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania. My understanding is that the ARD program acts to bar the record...
If someone gets arrested for a Highest Tier DUI (combination of legally prescribed drugs and alochol) in one PA county and then within 48 hrs gets arrested for a Highest Tier DUI (alcohol only) in a different PA county would they still be eligible for ARD in either or both countries if they have no prior record? Would one county D.A. and Court be able to transfer jurisdiction over on the DUI to another county (if they county were willing to accept it) to be combined for an ARD, or is such transfer outside the couty of the offest to another county even legally possible? If not, would one be considered a 1st offense and the second be considered for sentencing purposes.
I'm not sure what Scranton Pennsylvania courts do, but in New York, they would certainly be considered two separate and...
