I was arrested for disorderly conduct and then sent to the emergency room because I was intoxicated. What should I do about this
I am 18 year old college student, and was highly intoxicated and an ambulance was called for me. But I refused to get on, and was physically restrained and then arrested by the officer for disorderly conduct. My court date is in the near future. Do I need to get a lawyer for this court date? Does this show up on my permanent record? I heard disorderly conduct gets "sealed" after a year, is that true? Any advice for what I should do is helpful. Thank you.
Your already on the good path. Why ruin it by pleading guilty to anything? Hire an attorney and have him obtain an...
Should I plead innocent for DWI with a .07 as first offense & what should I do before my court date if I can't afford a lawyer?
I was detained by an officer on my way back to my apartment after having Thanksgiving dinner with some friends. My roommate had lent me his car for the weekend, while he was out of town. Since I don't usually drive around, I got lost (the officer detained me after I drove around the same area twice). I had taken a glass of whiskey, so the officer noticed the smell and he asked me to take the tests. After the preliminary tests, I got arrested for alleged driving while intoxicated (without having my rights read at the time). The BAC was measured by test as 0.07% and they also charged me with invasion of another lane (which I don't recall having done) and not using the signal when turning onto another street. I have no criminal record, nor I have been arrested ever before for anything.
Your situation sounds defendable. Select a local lawyer who you can trust to represent you aggressively. Good luck.
In July of 2003 I was convicted of a DWAI in my home state of New York. Saturday after my best friend's wedding I was pulled over for speeding -- 75 in a 55. The officer performed field sobriety tests, and arrested me. While at the station I admitted that I was probably too drunk, and that I'd had four glasses of wine. I submitted to two breathalyzers, but the machine didn't work properly, so they took me to the hospital for a blood test, where I refused due to my needle phobia. I know in 'common law' DWI cases the BAC is not necessary for conviction, but what can I reasonably expect as far as what charge I will have to plea to -- and the likelihood of jail time? Can I get a better lawyer than the public defender without money up front? Also, how do I find out if my license is supended?
It may be possible to negotiate a plea to another DWAI? Because your prior DAWI wasn't within the last five years the...
I received a DUI in PA in 2007 and completed the ARD program. The charges were expunged from my record. Can I enter Canada?
I did a criminal background check through the PA state police and it comes up "no record." I just want to make sure I won't run into any issues at the border since I am traveling on business.

I originally 2 years ago got convicted of a misdemeanor, recently violated for drinking. Now I am looking at a year of alcohol and drug classes 3 times a week with suspended probation for 3 months on top of my 1 year left of probation so 15 months in total. Or I can do the max 1 year in county jail that's if I get the full 1 year. So that is my question how likely is it I will get the max 1 year term and is it possible to get a shorter sentence? Seeing as I never violated probation before. Not to mention before my trouble with the law 2 years ago never even had a speeding ticket and have had a full time job this whole time. Also is it possible to get out sooner on good behavior for this?
On a 1 year sentence you will do 8 months with credit for any time previously in jail on the same case. Your lawyer can...
Looking for a DUI attorney in the Montgomery County Pennsylvania area, that accepts weekly/monthly payment plans.
I am being charged with my 4th dui in Montgomery County Pennsylvania. As well as driving without an ignition interlock. I am not concerned with the fines that will follow as much as I am avoiding jail time. I do not know if this matters at all but I live out of state in Albany, NY. I have 4 kids to support so staying out of jail is a huge concern to me and my family. I have just recently returned to work after a few months of being absent, so I do not have money saved up to afford an attorney outright. I am this week going back to full time which I make about 700 a week. I did refuse the chemical test so I am sure that this is going to be charged in the 3rd tier as .16 or above. I have seen multiple options in my research such as drug court, alcohol court and the IPP program.
You posted on the New York Avvo page. I suggest you re-post on the PA Avvo page or use the Find A Lawyer tab.
2 years ago i plead guilty to a DWI charge in which the officer lied about numerous things. I plead to the charge because I was told it is impossible to fight a violation of probation. I have recently learned that if the charges were dropped, the VOP would have been dismissed as well. I am very disturbed that my attorney told me this especially that the officer lied about numerous things and it says on the arrest report that there is video of the arrest. I am thinking of appealing the matter and possibly suing the lawyer. I have since called the attorneys firm with the matter and they more or less told me that the lawyer was completely in the wrong without admitting any fault. I have been told that with the evidence of the officer lying that the case would have been thrown out immediately.
You should first look for counsel to review all your post-conviction relief options.
