When i was 17 in the month of July i was charged with a DUI. I am now 21 and got a DUI last night. Will I serve jail time?
Also, since i was 17, will this count as a second DUI or a first offense? Am I eligible for ARD? Should i seek a lawyer or use a public defender? Thank you!
Yes a 2nd. No to ARD. You do have options. Contact a local qualified criminal defense attorney to review your case,...
Would I have a case against a restaurant chain for continuing to serve someone who was drunk despite me asking they stop?
Met up w/friends for dinner. During this time a friend's BF began to become belligerent & act like a jerk, so my friend ask I take her home. Before we left we stopped at the bar & told both bartenders to not serve him anymore, that he's drunk & has to drive home. They agreed. We left. Then we quickly felt bothered by this so we turned around and headed back to the restaurant. He was now sitting at the bar with shot glasses. This was in a 15-20min time frame. The boyfriend now makes a scene he is very eradic and flees the bar, I looked at the tab and they served him 3shots and a beer!!! This after we asked and they agreed not to. In the mean time my friend tried to get him to stop, but he made it to the car and took off. Hour goes by & he is in jail DUI. Is there ample cause to take action?
There would most likely be no liability on part of the bartender for someone receiving a DUI. However, there is...
I'm not sure what my BAC was on the first one because I refused to do the breathalyzer. After being processed and giving blood, I blew to see if I could be released and it was roughly .13 something. My second one I blew a .111 I haven't gotten anything regarding the first one, I imagine it takes a bit of time. Are my chances of getting into the ARD program pretty much done?
Typically a district attorney's office will not approve ARD for a defendant with 2 pending DUIs. That is a general...

Police van was next to me. light turned green but i was asking a passenger in rear where to drip him off at. police told me go. i said go ahead no yet. they got out of vehicle to question me and called back up. i said i didnt do anything wrong officer i sbouldnt have to give u id or anything.

my first offense and I was charged with possession of marijuana and I got two offenses for switching seats with my boyfriend after we got pulled over for my tinted windows. We were never read our rights and nerve got told why we were being stopped . I had to read I it in my summary after . I got out after 13 hours on $10,000 insecure bail. Just want to get ARD and forget about all of this if possible
I would reach out and hire local counsel who will be able to go over all your options with you including possibility of ARD.

I had my husband arrested for domestic violence but he had a gun, was drunk. How can I get charges dropped?
We got into a domestic violence dispute and he was drunk, he has a permit to carry a gun but he did threaten me with the gun.
YOU can't get the charges dropped. Only the prosecutor can drop criminal charges and given the use of a gun, that's...
