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.

What are the consequences of getting my fake id confiscated? Will I get a misdemeanor or a felony charge?
Last night I went to Morgans Pier and used a fake id to try and get in. Morgans Pier is a beer garden. Unfortunately, I got my fake confiscated. The bouncer used a flashlight to read my id (it was 10pm) and said "out" then didn't give my id back. Am I in huge trouble for this? Will the bouncer hand it over to the police and will I get charged for this? I already have a citation on my record for underage drinking from a little over a year ago but I plead not guilty and just got community service and alcohol classes. I'm not sure if this is still on my record but it happened right after I turned 18 and I did not get it expunged. Not sure if this will influence anything.
I really doubt the bouncer called the cops. They could, but it's not likely. You've already got two alcohol related...
Will the prosecutor verify my insurance for a DUI?
I had proof of insurance at the time of my arrest for a DUI involving an accident with no injuries. However I found out afterward my husband had not paid and the insurance had lapsed. Will they find this out and can they then charge me for that?
The MVD will find out generally the court will not.
