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...

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

If I have a Florida license and I got a DUI in Pennsylvania, is my license valid in other states?
I received 2 DUIS in Pennsylvania and my license is currently suspended in that state. My license still comes up as valid when I look it up.
Most states are members of a driver license compact. The purpose of the compact is to share information regarding...
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....
When the police take you for a blood test are there separate tests for drugs and alcohol or does one test show it all
I was arrested for dui and the cop said he was looking for dope, not alcohol. I was drinking earlier in the night but I don't think I was still drunk. I was sucker punched probably 20 minutes before I was arrested and I don't remember anything after being hit and believe I was concussed
Its a separate screen of your blood but it can all be done with the vial they take from you. You should let your...
When are the laws going to change about DUI M1 for purchasing a weapon?
DUI's in 1994 & 2004 and plead guilty to both. Received ARD for for one and second one M1. I cant buy or possess a weapon in PA but Ive been serving in the Army Reserves since 2006 as a Military Police officer carrying weapons. I train soldiers on all weapon systems but from this M1 in 2004 the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania says I'm considered a felon because of the length of the sentence was over a year . Dont you see the irony on all this. I can go to Iraq and Afghanistan and receive a Bronze star but cant possess a weapon in PA. Any information would be greatly appreciate it on how to solve this problem quickly. I ve heard to go through the pardon process but that doesnt make sense when you look at my last 11 years since conviction.I thought after 10 years its removed from your record.
Your firearm prohibition is actually not based upon Pennsylvania law but is instead based under Federal law under 18 U....
Dui conviction vs Dui (Ard Disposition)
I have a dui controlled substance charge. I likely qualify for ard because I have no prior misdeameanor or felony convictions. While on ard, I have to wait a year to get it expunged from my record. I have a bachelor's degree and I am driving myself crazy thinking how this charge mat affect me finding a decent job for the time being. I know ultimately every employer is different but I feel it would be more acceptable if it was a simple alcohol dui but no legit company wants a druggie even if it's not a conviction but a ard disposition. Am I thinking too much into this a shot just apply for jobs because at the end of the day it's not a conviction (and never will be) and jobs only care about convictions? Or is this something I should genuinely be concern ed about? Or is this
Employers care more about JUST a conviction, they care about a course of conduct. Thus, even it's imperative you do...
