I am currently doing ARD for 1st offense DUI. Upon completion at 6 months after I can get it expunged. Will this expunged DUI show up at the Canadian background search? Will it keep me out, if so should I contact a Canadian law specialist, what steps are necessary?
In theory, an expungement makes your arrest a legal nullity as if it never happened. The actual clearing of the record...
I'm 18, got a DUI in PA and my BAC was .11, is there any way I would be able to request an IID instead of license suspension?
I need to be able to get to work and go to school. It is my first offense and my record is pretty clean other than a speeding ticket.
No. Unless the charge is reduced or you are acquitted, your license will be suspended, there is no authority in PA law...

You need to talk to a PA DUI attorney. You may have a valid defense. Best of luck to you
I live outside Pittsburgh, PA. I had 2 in 2009 that were less than 2 months apart. Unfortunately, this past June 2014
got another which would be my 3rd in a little over 5 years. However, being that the first 2 were so close together, is there any chance the court would consider combining those into one to make this most recent one a 2nd? Also, I completed 14 days of inpatient treatment and now have been living in a recovery house for 60 days. What are the chances of receiving time served? Thank you for your assistance! These are driving under the influence charges of course at the highest tier for each. I was told the court may be inclined to give credit for living in a recovery house because it has curfew, testing, AA meeting requirements, and 24/7 staff on site.
I am going to change the practice area because you appear to be talking about a DUI case and you need to be looking for...
My husband has a lot of unpaid fines with the courts and he's also on probation. Last year he went to jail for unpaid fines, while he was in jail his P.O saw he had new charges on 2 different cases one that involved me. He put a detainer on him at his vop hearing. I talked to his PO about me being pregnant, and he talked to his supervisor and lifted the detainer. he's been doing what he was suppose to and paid off that fine but then when we had our hearing together 2 weeks ago we found out he had another fine, with a warrent, this one in pittsburgh, when we went back to court today they picked him up and put him in allegheny..The cops said i cant get him out until tomorrow? the lady gave me a number, she thinks he has court tomorrow and to call before i come out. Will he get out tomorrow?
There is no possibility that anyone here can answer your question. If he is in jail because of unpaid fines the best...
I got an underage citation the other day but was not breathalyzed. He did an eye test and said i was drinking. Can i fight it?
I was at a concert the other day with a group of friends. I was not drinking or had any alcohol on my possession or around me. A cop walked passed me and continued to walk about ten to fifteen feet behind me when he called me over. I walked over and he picked up an open beer on the back tire of a truck and looked at me insinuating it was mine. I told him it was not mine, and he asked me to walk in front of everyone and follow the pen with my eyes. I've had 4 eye surgeries since i was three years old and also have signs of glaucoma, and when i strain my eyes certain directions my eyes jiggle. When the police officer noticed he asked if i was doing it on purpose. I told him no, and then he walked me over to his car where he wrote the underage citation saying i had alcohol on my breath.
The answer to your question is absolutely YES. The HGN test is a very poor test, but you will obviously be confronted...
Passenger in a commercial work vehicle hit by a drunk driver. Am I covered under the bodily injury policy of my employer.
The driver who hit us is under insured and was not hurt, but both driver and passenger in our vehicle had injuries.
Both of you have a case. Because of the criminal act is very serious, it is very helpful to speak or email an attorney...
