Iam on probation in Delaware county pa for my 2nd dui, what will happen if I move to florida without permission?
i previously lived in florida for 3 years to get help for a substance problem all 3 years i remained 100 percent sober, and this would be my reason for going back. i have a lot of support and resources to help me live a clean and sober life down there. meanwhile in PA i cannot get it together. iam currently in the process of the probation getting transferred, but it takes a while and iam afraid i wwont make it that long.
The most obvious ramifications is that your probation could be revoked. Why not talk with a local lawyer and see if...

You should do what you should have done 10 weeks ago. Get yourself a lawyer. If there is a statute of limitations or...
If I move from pa to fl while on probation for my 2nd dui will the police come find me or will police contact get me arrested?
im going to florida to get sober I was sober there for 3 years, I cant get it together here in PA. im assuming a warrant will be sent out, I know I will have that to deal with in the future, but my life is important to me and my loved ones and im losing it here in pa, so if I go will police be actively looking for me or will running into the law be my only way of getting caught up? Iam willing to face the consequences with a lawer once I have my health in order. but the process of getting this probation transferred is taking too long and my life is deteriorating away due to substance problems
It is inappropriate to tell you to violate the law which is what you want an attorney to do on this site. As I stated...
Can a dui sentence of 3 months for one county get ran concurrent with another county for a different case?
Dui sentence is for 3 months. The person got incarcerated while in the process of going to court for sentencing. The person has also already served 3 months for the other case he was incarcerated for.

In Pennsylvania whole blood got to be tested in order to sustain a DUI conviction and not the supernatant portion?
Recent decisions of this Court have "made it clear that supernatant blood alcohol test results are invalid unless converting evidence is provided to establish the alcohol content of whole blood. We explained that where blood alcohol testing is performed on only a portion of whole blood, such as plasma, serum, or a supernatant sample, it requires conversion to establish the correlative whole blood test results." Commonwealth v. Haight, 50 A.3d 137, 141. If the person supernatant blood was only tested and even if the jury had convicted the person for DUI and the supernatant portion of the blood was tested, this cannot sustain a DUI right? What happens if the person has appealed their PCRA petition and the decision from the Superior Court came back affirmed, what is the next step of process?
I'm going to address the last, procedural question you've posed. If my understanding is correct that the Superior Court...

Trying to work a PCRA petition, let alone a PCRA *appeal* isn't something you're going to want to do on your own....
