Whats the difference between dismissed and withdrawn?
Got a dui and the cop had no training in dui or dui sobriety field testing. And over all the judge withdrew the careless driving and dimissed the dui. Whats the difference in withdrawn and dismissed? Thank you
With respect, the judge cannot withdraw the charges. You may misunderstand what actually occurred. Have you discussed...

My main question is, am I able to travel freely or do I need to cancel my trip?
Hello everyone, I got a DUI back in December. I had booked a trip to Europe before the DUI. I'm now curious if I am able to travel BEFORE my preliminary hearing? My preliminary is in March, my trip is in February
Have a great time in Europe. Just make sure you don't miss any court hearings and stay in touch with youregard lawyer.
Passed sobriety test but still got cited: Will I be found guilty or not guilty? Is there enough evidence to find me guilty?
I was walking, alone, back to my dorm. A security guard said I was stumbling (which might have been me distracted on my phone, etc). I got into my dorm building and she stopped me and told me she called a cop from public safety and they needed to test my sobriety. I was annoyed saying "this is ridiculous" "I'm not doing anything wrong" "I'm just trying to go to my room and go to bed". Furthermore, the cop conducted a field sobriety test, and made me walk a straight line. I passed, but he said I just passed; but either way, I passed. He then asked me if I was subjecting myself to a breathalyzer test and I said no because I know my rights and I know I don't have to. He told me that he was starting to smell alcohol on me and I responded that I hadn't been drinking. I asked him if we were done and if I could leave and he said I could leave and I wasn't getting an underage. Then, a week later I get a citation in the mail saying "defendant admitted to consuming liquor or malt beverages while under the legal age of 21" which I know 110% I did not do and is a blatant lie. Also, since I passed the sobriety test, doesn't that protect my claim of being sober?
This sounds like a case that could likely be resolved with a lesser charge or an acquittal if you approach the matter...
If my license is suspended in PA can i drive in California? If i need ignition interlock in my car in PA will i need it in CA?
My license got suspended in June for a DUI in Pennsylvania, it is suppose to be suspended for a year than a year with the ignition interlock. However, since i got everything done in a good time my probation office sent a signed letter to the judge asking him to reinstate my license. I'm moving to California in January and am thinking my license will most likely be reinstated by then, but will i need the interlock in my car in CA if everything with my dui happened in PA?
If you move to CA you will likely need to apply for a CA license once you establish residency there. The question...

I had a prior dui 13 years ago. Will I be eligible for an OLL from Penndot after 60 days of hard suspension.

Preliminary hearing papers state I am charged with a first offense dui. Will they know about my past dui at the hearing?
I had a DUI 7 years ago in another dlc state. The court papers state that I am being charged for a first offense DUI. Is this what they normally put on the paper work regardless of the offense count? How likely is it that my past DUI will be discovered by the DA?
It's likely it will be discovered. The DA can always amend the charge to a second offense DUI. You may be fortunate...
