Can Judge change my husbands DUI from 1st offense to 4th offense
My husband was pulled over last week and when I reviewed his charges on the Court Case Information online, I see he was charged with DUI (1st Offense) and 5 others...Well technically this is his 4th offense. He was found guilty on all previous DUI (3 of them in the past 10-15 years).My question is Can the judge/pa legally change his DUI charge from 1st to 4th Offense

I received a 0.2 BAC DUI in VA but will have a PA license before trial. Will PA also suspend my license if VA finds me guilty?
My trial for the DUI charge will likely be in February, but I move to Philadelphia in January. Virginia DUI laws are some of the strictest, likely guaranteeing 5 days jail and 1 year license suspension. I'm curious if they will forward the charge and I will also face trial and/or similar charges in PA.
Criminal charges are tried in the county and state where the criminal offense is alleged to have occurred.
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....

Will my probation officer find out.
Friday night I had gone out drinking and ended up drinking too much and entirely more than intended. I had gone home and my roommate heard me having trouble breathing and called an ambulance. When the ambulance came the police had actually come with them as well and searched my room to see if any drugs were involved. The police asked my room mate if I was on probation and my room mate said yes. No new charges were filed and I was taken to the hospital over night for monitoring. I have not heard anything from my probation officer yet and it is Sunday evening. Will he find out about this?
Given your facts, it's really not likely. Drinking to the point where you need medical attention is a serious problem.....
