What would be a good legal basis for filing a Habeus Corpus for a DUI VOP with a new charge in a neighboring county?
Defendant is on probation for a DUI in Delaware County PA and has a new charge in Montgomery County PA which resulted in a warrant from Delaware County for VOP of previous DUI. The new charge is a DUI. Defendant wants to file a Habeus Corpus in an attempted to be released to get his affairs in order and prepare for new charge trial. What is the best way to approach the filing the Habeus Corpus? Defendant has been detained by Delaware County and after a weeks time detained was still not seen by a caseworker which means he was not able to request a public defender until about 8 days into being detained. No one has communicated with the defendant. He has no idea what is going on with his violation either. He was detained in a non dui cell block for 10 days ( a violent offender section) and was just moved to the dui unit 11 days after arriving to George Hill Prison. He still has not met his PD and has not been informed about anything regarding VOP. What would be his best chances at requesting relief in his Habeus Corpus? It will be a pro se filing for the defendant.

If I was arrested before the interlock law was enacted for 2nd offenses, can I be forced to put one on my auto?
I was arrested in February of 2003 for a 2nd DUI and plead guilty in October of the same year. I completed all requirements of probation and I'm finally want to reapply for my license but was told I need the ignition interlock. When I was arrested the law was that only the judge could order the interlock, whereas now it is mandatory for second offenses. I am curious if I have a case in appealing PennDot's decision?
This is an interesting question that may require a bit of investigation. However, at first blush, I believe that Pendot...
Does an ARD form need to be submitted by a lawyer or can the defendent submit the forms himself? I live in PA.

I went for my CRN a couple days ago. I was told by the person there that I'm going to lose my license for 60 days (is this true?). I already submitted my ARD forms but do I need to have them submitted by a lawyer or was it ok for me to submit them myself? This all happened in PA, Montgomery County.
It is not too late to get a lawyer but if you are accepted into an ARD program in Montgomery County, it is possible to...
Parole violation and dui
I am on Pennsylvania state parole and have been home for eight years. My original charge was for a homicide in Philadelphia. My parole is not supposed to be up till 2015. I was just arrested for driving under the influence. I had a bac of .163. Does anyone know what kind of penalties I'm looking at for the DUI. And more importantly does anyone have any idea how much time the parole board is likely to give me for the violation. I know they can take my street time and extend my parole. Is it likely they will make me max out my original sentence? Please help!
You need to immediately see an attorney in PA. Being an attorney in NC, I can't tell you what penalties you face for...
