What will I be faced with after my DUI?
The only other similar offense I made was >8 years ago when my DUI was knocked down to a physical control. This time I was driving with a broken taillight, pulled over, passed the active field sobriety test, but failed the breathalyzer test with the highest BAC level (c).
Assuming no other DWI/DUI where you were convicted of that offense, this should be prosecuted as DWI #1. However, from...

I live in PA and own a business. One of my employees was pulled over in a work truck and turns out his license is suspended.
I live in PA and own a business. One of my employees was pulled over in a work truck and turns out his license is suspended for DUI. The police had me pick up the truck at the scene and said I will receive citations in the mail for allowing someone with DUI suspension drive a vehicle. I told him 4 times I didn't know he didn't have a license but he didn't care. This sounded like he was just trying to scare me. However I am concerned. Is there any truth to this? Thanks Dan
I would suggest contacting an attorney if you receive a citation. Unfortunately in PA there is a law on the books that...

How long will it take for my DUI to be expunged in Allegheny County? ARD program
I am approximately one month away from completing the ARD program for a DUI. I was wondering how long it takes Allegheny County to expunge my record? My lawyer made it seem like it happens immediately upon completion, but I'm discovering on my own that that does not seem to be the case. Will I require representation for the expungement at any time? As of now, how am I to answer questions on a job application such as "Have you ever been convicted with or without trial, or pleaded guilty, or no contest to, or otherwise been found to have committed a felony or misdemeanor other than a traffic violation and/or a summary offense?"
Most counties in Pennsylvania have adopted automatic expungement procedures for successful ARD participants. If for...
What does he tell the majistrate
My son had dui 10 years ago. He did all the classes but never payed the fine. Fine was sold to a collection agentcy. And the case showed that the docket number has been closed. He recently got pulled over while driving without a license from that past dui. What can he expect. Mandatory 90 days or a fine and longer suspension.
Sometimes the lawyer can get other things besides jail house arrest or work release get a lawyer
