How much more will Dui under controlled substance charge affect employment over regular dui?
I was recently charged with dui controlled substance in pa. I do qualify for the Ard program which will eventually wipe my record clean but I have to wait until a year and a half for that to happen. 1) How much will charge (not conviction) hurt my chances for employment over a regular dui? 2) I have a bachelor's degree from Temple University and many skills. Is that something that could level the playing field to a potential employer with someone who has no arrest record?
There's just no way to answer that, it is applies and oranges. Every employer is different.

How much will dui under controlled substance affect employment?
I was charged with a dui under controlled substance a few months back in PA. I do qualify for the ARD program but I have to wait a long time before it's expunged. My question is how will it look to an employer in the time being? Is it as bad as let's say simple possession or possession with intent to sell? For all an employer know it could have been an over the counter drug in my case. I feel like my charge is a little more spinnable than the others. In my case it will never be a conviction if I complete the program. 1) How much do you think it will affect me in the next year? 2) Should I disclose it and make some lie about it being a prescription drug?
Let me preface this answer by saying that I do not practice in PA, so I do not know of the program to which you are...
A family member was charged with DUI, a friend recommended ARD for first offense. Do I need a laywer for this?
A family member was recently charged with 75 § 3802 §§ D2* (DUI) and 75 § 3309 §§ 1 because he accidentally took too much of his prescribed medication. We have not received anything in the mail yet but on PA state website it says "Awaiting Preliminary Hearing". A friend was saying we could do the ARD program to remove the charge from record since it's a first offense but I am unsure if this is a simple process or if a lawyer is needed. Unfortunately, funds are very limited
Absolutely. Often times having an attorney is a prerequisite to being accepting into the ARD program. If funds are...

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.
