DUI, probation.
My brother got DUI in 2014. As per court order he was supposed to attend some classes 3 times (3 days). He did, but only 2 times. He paid all fines, but missed one class (one day). Now, he called the court, and they told him everything is ok. Is it possible he has a warrant issued? How can we find out about it? Can he get any documents from the court that he fulfilled his obligations? I know he had a probation officer assigned, should he contact him? I mean, we have no idea if can even drive in PA (we live in NJ). Please help.
Your brothers first call should be to the attorney that represented him in this matter.
Is it worth it in the long run to get my case expunged?
In 2014, when I was 18, I got an underage drinking citation. I plead guilty, paid fines, and did community service in order to get my case dismissed. I'm a junior nursing student and I'm afraid that when I graduate in 2017, my dismissed case will come up in my record when employers view my criminal record. I was wondering if it was worth it to get my case expunged.
Heres the thing, would you be asking if it wasnt?? Its always better to have a clean recors if you can afford it.
Is it possible to receive an underage drinking citation/summons from the Philadelphia PD in the mail with this new provision?
The Philadelphia PD has a new provision stating that they will issue handwritten or electronic citations on the spot to offenders/defendants.
It is possible. Technology is ever changing, but mistakes happen too. What were you told?
Charged with underage. First or second offense?
A few months back I was stopped for underage drinking however in court it was knocked to a disorderly conduct. Now a few weeks ago I received another underage, (I'm an idiot I know) and I was just wondering if this will be considered my first or second offense seeing as my last one was knocked to disorderly.
It would be a first. Your not an idiot. You may need to speak to a counselor get some help.
What pleas can be made with a second DUI with first one over 17 years ago?
My husband had a DUI when he was 21. He is now 38, and just received another one on his way home from a hockey game. I believe his BAC was .16. There was no accident, or injury. We obtained a lawyer, and we believe we made a mistake by paying in full right away. His lawyer never calls to update or discuss what his options are. Anyway, what is the worst that could happen and what plea bargains could be made? He cooperated immediately. He just wants to keep his job, stay out of jail being his main concern.
The old dui won't count. However his bac is high. Try calling attorney again. Paying an attorney in full is fine and...
Can I have my underage charge dropped if no breathalyzer, and no field sobriety test were ever administered?
I was in an accident recently where my girlfriend was driving and when the police arrived they said they could smell alcohol on me. I never admitted to being under the influence but I also never contested the officer every time he accused me simply to avoid them thinking I was being uncooperative. Also, if convicted. I recently was stopped and cited for underage about a month and a half - two months ago however it was knocked to a disorderly conduct. If convicted will this be considered my first underage offense? Thanks for the help.
It's possible but just about any evidence you were drinking at all is enough to convict. I recommend hiring counsel to...
How likely is it that I will be convicted of a DUI/Leaving the Scene of an Accident? Do I need a lawyer before I talk to police?
I drove sober to a concert in the city. Parked my car and went into the concert. When I came out of the concert, I could not find my vehicle, and was advised to report it stolen in-person at the police station the following morning. The officers noted alcohol on my breath when I was reporting the situation. The car was found a couple of days later a few blocks from where I told the police I parked it. It was damaged a little on the front end and reported by someone to insurance to have been in an accident.
Sounds like you have some good facts to work with but you should contact and speak with a qualified DUI attorney on...
