PennDot says they never received my DL-16LC and now I'm unable to reinstate my driving privilege in PA What can I Do?
As a PA Licensed driver I got a DUI in 2015 (1st Offense), I refused blood work. I was actually in the process of moving to MD so before my first court date I got a MD drivers license. I did the ARD program and submitted a DL-16LC for the mandatory 60 day suspension in May/April 2016. I was trying to appeal the 1 yr suspension for the refusal however I was denied in October 2016. Got the letter stating my Driving privilege in PA was suspended starting 11/30/16. I had a lawyer for the whole process and I thought he submitted the DL-16LC just like he did for the 60 day suspension. (Still waiting to hear back from him) Anyways a years been up and I tried to get my PA privilege restored and PennDot is telling me they never got the second DL-16LC. My question is if there is no proof of the second DL-16LC being sent out what options do I have? Can the first DL-16LC be used as the "reason" I can't surrender a PA drivers license? I really would hate to have my family and friends meet me at the border every time I come home for another year... Sorry for making it so long.
You should get to your lawyers office and find out what he or she did or did not do related the the DL-16. If the...

Can someone apply for treatment (drug) court in a different county that offers it (felony charges) to maintain employment?
I was charged with 2 felony counts of PWID schedule 2 controlled substances along with 2 other 3rd-degree felony counts of criminal use of a communication device. Basically was set up on controlled buys by a confidential informant on 2 separate occasions with the amount totaling 5 pills (150mg). This is my first offense and occurred months before graduating from college (around March) , and I wasn't made aware of the charges until September. I have hired an local lawyer in the area who's course of action is basically to try and get the case into treatment (drug) court and claim that I committed alleged crimes to support my addiction. The goal is try and get the felonies dismissed after my successful completion of the treatment program and eventually expunged off of my record. I've already waived my preliminary hearing (lawyer's advice) to apply for treatment court and am currently waiting for my preliminary arraignment. I have accepted an offer at a very big and reputable company and have already underwent a background check and drug screening and am scheduled to start (in a different county) around the same time. Could I complete this drug court there?
It is unlikely. Ask your attorney.
