Will a previous offense such as underage drinking affect my chances of getting ARD for a DUI charge?
About 8 or so years ago I got an underage drinking charge, my BAC was .03 i belive? Anyway I paid my fine and lost my license and its been in the past until now. I recieved a DUI and waived my rights and applyed for ARD. I have my CRN next week followed by my arraignment in Bucks County. What should I expect, will I know if i am accepted into ARD? Will this previous charge of underage drinking hurt my chances of getting ARD?
The old summary offense should not prevent you from getting ARD. The BAC may be relevant along with your license status...
My husband has just had a 2nd dui. He was in a single-car accident (he hit a wall). His BAC will be very high. He is 61 years
old and is a Type 1 DIabetic; he became very overwhelmed and was having high anxiety and made an attempt to cut his wrist. I took him to the er where they stitched him up and put him into crisis care management. He volunteered to be hospitalized at a dual-diagnosis clinic for a 72 hour observation period. According to the tier, he is facing 90 days incarceration this feeds the anxiety (and depression) further. I support DUI laws, but am fearful that he will either try to harm himself again or just leave. He is a very good man; his health and job loss along with his Type I diagnosis (a few years ago, leaves him fragile. I don't think my county supports house arrest - is there any path to pursue to avoid so much jail time? Thank you!
Unfortunately, if he is convicted then the judge must impose a mandatory minimum 90 day sentence. House arrest is very...
I recieved an underage drinking charge and I blew .00 twice and then blew .03 after about 30-45 minutes. Can I fight this?
I am 19. Thinking the officer would not believe me if I told him I wasn't drinking I told him that I had a beer thinking he would cut us some slack for being cooperative more likely. Also they didn't inform us of our rights.
Absolutely. Best not to go at it alone though. Having an attorney with you will likely allow you to work out...
Was my rights violated on this DUI charge?
I pulled into my hotel complex, police pulled behind me and told me I didn't put on my turn signal. He then asked why I was there. I said I'm staying at the hotel. He said my eyes looked like I was drinking and to come take test. I said why? I did nothing wrong and I'm not intoxicated and feel unsafe and profiled.I said no. They through me in the car, handcuffed me, forced me to give blood at hospital, forced me to breath in breath device at the station, gave 2 completely different # as I breathed consecutive times, then threw me in cell. They read me no rights and ignored me when I asked to contact my attorney or spouse. After an hour or so they let me go and gave me my license etc.and said I was .04
You very possibly have a case. The turn signal violation, unless fabricated, gave the officer reasonable suspicion to...
Can they charge me with a dui if I was fleeing some one trying to kill me?
I'm in Pa. I was charged with a dui after I recieved a beating so horrific by my boyfriend that I had 2 broken vertebrae and I was hospitalized. My boyfriend and I had gone out and had some drinks. We came home and his bipolar kicked in and he started viciously beating me. once he had me on the ground he repetedly kicked me in the back head and neck that lead to a concussion, 2 fractured vertebrae and a massive amount of bruising. As soon as he stopped to throw up I ran to my truck. my intentions were to hide my self in my truck on the other side of our massive complex while I assessed my situation. I was half pulled out of the parking spot when I was stopped. I was taken to a trauma center by ambulance. They drew blood with out my consent. Can they punish me for saving my own life?
The unfortunate answer is yes they can... And often do. The important thing is often prosecutors will look to resolve...
Who is the best possible attorney against PennDot?
I lost my license originally for 2.5 years but they claimed to never have received my ID and has made me wait now 4 years and still have another year.
There is no 'Best' possible attorney who handles Penn DOT matters. There are a lot of good attorneys who handle Traffic...
