Clifton Heights Law

I am on probation for a DUI. My probation is over June 2013. Last night I was cited for Public Intoxication. Will I violate?
Additionally, I was arrested in May for drug possession and incarcerated for 2 weeks until the detainer was lifted. I fought the charges and won and only received a disorderly conduct. My PO removed the violation so technically I do not have any violations since I began probation in 2008. Should I tell him or will he not even find out because it is a summary offense? Should I fight the charge? I don't think it makes sense to fight it since he can violate me if he wishes just because I was arrested, regardless if I am found guilty. I have a lawyer that I worked with previously, but I was looking online for more help. I look forward to someone's advice.
It depends on what the rules and conditions of your probation are. I would not count on your PO not hearing about it.
How does that 10 year look back period for pa dui laws relate to people that had dui prior to the new law?
I got a dui in 1994 and went thru the ard program. I got a dui in 2004 and the new law states it can look back 10 years. I was told that my first dui was going to be expunged from my record in 7 years from the judge.. the duis were 9yrs and 8 months apart
I'm a bit puzzled why you're asking about a DUI in 2004, but to answer your question, the 2004 DUI would definitely be...
Is it possible to get a 1994 DUI conviction expunged
i had aDUI in 7/1994 and went through the ARD program. I also got a DUI in 3/2004. Im hoping to get this expunge for i would like to enter the police academy. Since my last DUI, I have joined the military and i'm currently deployed to iraq. I had paid all my fines and served my time for my DUI conviction since it was not after ten years before entering the military. I was hoping to get this infraction off of my criminal record. I also was wondering that since my first conviction was in 1994 wouldnt i fall in the old rules when your arrest would of went off the record after 7 years?
The first DUI would be expunged upon motion after successful completion of ARD, but even that is somewhat misleading....
My husband served 2 yrs for dui 2005-2007. He's now serving 30 days in jail for dui . Is there a statue of limitations on dui
He had too much to drink after 8 years of sobriety. He didn't feel as though he'd had too much to drink after not drinking for so long. Will he now be penalized for his past mistakes, he learned a lesson after serving 2 yrs of his life. He's 51 yrs old and believe me he's learned his lesson.
Whats confusing from your question is whether he in jail on a new DUI. Statute of limitations apply to new charges...
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...
Will an arrest show up on a background check?
I was arrested for driving with a suspended license in MD. The reason my license was suspended I found, was for non payment of a speeding ticket in Delaware a couple years before. I did in fact pay the ticket on time. My home state (PA) and Delaware never communicated to each other that it was paid. I never received notice of license suspension so 2 years later was stopped for expired registration in MD and arrested for having the suspended license. A lawyer gathered the necessary information and wrote a letter to the court. Everything was dropped without having to go to court. I want to know if the arrest will show up on a background check and if so what state to talk to to get it removed. Thanks for any advice
It matters first of all what kind of background check you are referring to. There are many types and each has...
Will the new bill 1239 passed October,2014 affect my DUI case as I was arrested January, 2014?
I was looking for some help from a attorney possibly currently or previously dealing with this. I was arrested January,2014 and took a plea deal to be charged as a 1st offense because I had a prior but then everyone pretended to know nothing about my priors and I was sentenced as a second offense third tier so my public defender screwed me. I had to hire an appellate attorney and this case has been going on for some time as I try to get my original deal or at least a fair chance at trial. This technically would be my third as my first being 2008 in New Jersey I received two in 2014 the last before I was convicted of the first so I believe Commonwealth vs Haag would have applied but now new law was passed recently so my question is if I do get the plea negated would I face harsher charges?
This is an excellent question to pose to your appellate attorney. While represented by an attorney, he or she must be...
