I am 18 and got arrested for DUI because my car smelled like weed and I gave a positive blood test at the scene.
It has been two months and I have not heard anything. How long will it take to hear from the state of PA? Do some cases just go away? If I apply and get into ARD, will I be drug tested throughout the process?
Some police departments wait until they get the blood test results back from the state lab which can take some time....
Underage drinking
I got caught for underage drinking, they drove me home the night of, but said they might charge me the following Thursday ( They were off rotation until then.) If they were going to charge me, could they still do it that Thursday, or would they have to do it the night of?

What are the consequences for an underaged drinking citation as a passenger in the car?
My friend got pulled over and got charged with a DUI. I was a passenger in the back seat and got a citation for underaged drinking. There was no alcohol present in the car.
Depends on the defendan't s criminal history. Contact a local criminal defense attorney aSAP.
How do I know my citation carries a license suspension
I got a citation today in the mail for "purchase etc alcoholic beverage by a minor" and it carries a fine of $304, but does not mention whether or not my license will be suspended. How do I know before I plead guilty? Also for context, I was caught walking down the street holding an open beer and blew a .00.
If you are under 21 and were carrying an open container of alcohol that is a violation. It also carries a license...
Officer made me blow 3 times and he never got a reading after arresting me, did blood work, what now?
So I was pulled over and arrested for suspicion of DUI. I did the Field Sobriety tests (had my heel like shoes on, and there was a lot of gravel) and after doing the 9-step test, was arrested. Cuffed and in the back of the car, he attempted to breathalyzer test me 3 times, saying I wasn't blowing hard enough, then after the 3rd, said "Alright we're going to the hospital for blood testing". At the hospital I informed them of my fainting issue, and they gave me water and an ice pack and let me lay down before drawing blood. They then drew blood. This was Saturday night/Sunday morning on October 8th, 2017. What should I do now? If no breathalyzer reading was made, is beating the blood test the best bet? Due to your BAC level rising the longer you wait after your first drink?
What should you do now??? You have asked a number of questions. However, the answers will not be found on the...

Accepted ARD as there is no other to take... was taking prescription med for an ear infection. Have done all of the ARD requirements, and attorney said that judge will take license tomorrow. Are there any exceptions, especially in cases like this?
If you have an attorney the question is better posed to him because that’s what you were paying him for. Any suspension...
