I was pulled over prior to the cop stopping me and he asked if I was drinking and I said acouple over a long period of time and within 2 minutes he had me take a breath test. He then asked me to blow into the machine without specific instructions on how hard or anything and it didn't record the first time so I did it again after instructions and it recorded. I then did a heel to toe test that I passed and he arrested me for DUI and took me to the hospital for blood test and released from the hospital to friends. I am a non p.a. Resident from New Jersey if that makes any difference on consequences.
It sounds like the officer had to blow for a PBT (preliminary breath test) which is not admissible in court but can add...
My fiancé and I had moved to pennsylvania, shortly after as planned for months, established residency and aquired our drivers licences in pensy with no issues. I have not yet been convicted of the dui (waiting on a trial date). Is penndot going to recognize even with the interstate compact that this occurred? It was with a jersey licence, now I'm pennsylvania. Should I tell my dui attorney about this?
Short answer, "yes" depen ding on the outcome of the case in NJ. Of course, tell your attorney about this.
I'm pretty sure it's .04 no matter what you are driving if you have a cdl. But have heard that while not in a cdl vehicle it reverts to the standard. .08. What is the actual law?
.08 in Non commercial vehicle. That said, if you are a commercial driver, don't drive within 12 hours of drinking... I...
I was arrested at the end of February 2014 for DUI, they just filed the charges this week in Pennsylvania. The police said if I make some drug buys for them that could help me. What are the chances if I make several buys like they want that they will drop the DUI at the preliminary hearing to a couple of summary offenses? I asked and they said the DA doesn't normally show up at the preliminary hearing and most of deals are cut when it gets to county court.
Hopefully, someone near Bensalem will chime in with a more defnitive answer, but all I can tell you is that it depends...
my friends brother got pulled over on a motorcycle he just purchased. he doesn't have a mc license and I doubt a permit. I don't know all the details but bottom line is. He blew a .06 but is a cdl driver so .04 is his limit, but the cdl was overlooked at the time. Could they still hit him with dui if it gets discovered?
The short answer is, yes, your friend's brother can and likely will be charged with a DUI. He needs an experienced...
I was pulled over and charged with a DUI first offense , controlled substance in November. My license was suspended, so when I applied for ARD, I was denied. I was also denied a public defender, so I have no legal representation. I don't have the funds for a lawyer at this point in time because I am 5 months pregnant, preparing to move. What should I expect at this trial? If I need to do jail time, will they take me from trial? And do jails provide prenatal care if needed?
You can expect to go to jail for 3 days which is the mandatory minimum. Did you apply for House Arrest? If you applied...
Had a DUI about 12 years ago and was in the ARD program. I just got arrested this past weekend for DUI in Bucks county. Is there any chance of getting ARD again since it's been more than 10 years? If they don't file in the 5 days does that mean the charges get dismissed?
To start, the charges will not be dismissed if they aren't filed within 5 days. The Bucks County DA's office will...
