2nd Citation for underage drinking in 6 months.
It was at a concert and it was liquor enforcement. They asked me what I drank and I said vodka. I had neither my license nor alcohol on me and on the citation I received it said I was over 18 with possession. Can i get out of this because they got my information wrong and I did not actually have anything on me? Thanks a lot I appreciate the feedback.
Your admission that you drank vodka does not help, but without evidence of actual possession, there are some weaknesses...
Hi, I am wondering how to proceed on a public drunkennes citation in PA. What should I plead?
The citation is just for public drunkennes and it says the defendant was manifestly under the the influence of alcohol in a public place. Is there a real possiblity to be sent to prison for this? (I have read you could get imprisoned for up to 90 days). Also, is there a way to ask for something like community service to solve this issue? thanks
Although PA has adopted unified practice rules, consequences and potential resolutions vary widely from county to...

Do I have to disclose an expunged DUI to the police academy.
Five years ago (age 18) I got a DUI and was placed in an ARD program. After everything was complete I paid to have everything expunged. On the last page of the expungement package it states that all official fingerprints, records, and pictures will be destroyed. In May I am graduating with a bachelors degree and would like to apply to a police academy. With everything being destroyed do I legally have to ever disclose the DUI happen?
Ask yourself what would happen if someone did not disclose the crime and it was later discovered somehow? If you think...

What is the best outcome that could happen for a second DUI first tier?
I received my first in 2009, and did everything i had to do (pay fines, ARD, Community Services). I have no priors, no points, etc.. A few nights ago I had a few (5 coors lt) hours earlier, waited a while, and stupidly got behind the wheel to get something to eat (didn't eat earlier). I hit a DUI checkpoint. I blew a .084 according to the officer. No blood was drawn. I was charged. I am the sole provider for my family and i work 80 miles away. I have 2 small children with a third on the way in two months. I know I made the biggest mistake i could ever, and have been sick mentally & physically over my actions and that i hurt my family. My biggest scare now is losing my job and being out on the street. What would be the best thing to come out of this?
The best thing is always an acquittal. Its why people in your position hire attorneys. You have to be convicted....
