What will happen if I did not receive a citation for an underage, even though I got breathalyzed?
I was walking back from a party and was stopped by the police. I got breathalyzed and was told what was going to happen, but was not given a citation like the other two people who were with me.
They can choose to charge you, or they can choose to not do so. Stop risking your future.
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?

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?

Did this counselor break the confidentiality law?
I was ordered into a drug and alcohol class by the court. I completed the class successfully, but at discharge the counselor referred me to a drug and alcohol evaluation, which the court enforces . I asked if it was because I blew a .15 in the breathalyzer during my incident, and he said no its because I know you have a history of drugs and alcohol. The history he referenced was from a previous situation in which i sought individual counseling at a place that took my insurance and he was my counselor. These were two completely separate situations and he brought in our past counseling, in which there was a confidentiality agreement signed by both of us. I feel as if this violated the agreement because he used that against me to make a recommendation to the court.
What exactly was the confidentiality agreement he and you signed? Usually, confidentiality agreements require that...

I received a DUI in Pennsylvania roughly an hour away from the university I attend roughly a year ago. Will my school find out?
I received it almost a year ago, I have not heard anything from my university. I'm halfway done with completing probation and ARD with no issues at all so far. Will my university somehow find out about this? They haven't contacted me in regards to the arrest so far, and it's almost been an entire academic year.
I do not know. However, it is important to know that completion of ARD is NOT a conviction. You never have to say you...
