What are my options. I got a DUI in Cambria County, Pennsylvania last night. I'm in the military and I take care of my mom. HELP
Last night (March 8, 2017) I went to a local tavern in Cresson, Pennsylvania at 8:00pm EST. I stayed until approximately 11:15pm, having consumed four beers within those three hours. I returned to my home and ate a heavy meal and slept for approximately one hour. I awoke at around 1:00am and left in my vehicle at 1:30am. I considered myself fit to drive and completely sober. After driving for around twenty minutes I was stopped on PA Route 53 North at 1:53am. The reason the State Trooper gave me for stopping me was "my third brake light was out". This was a surprise to me due to the fact I have been stopped multiple times by State and local law enforcement, and it was never mentioned. The fact is the light was covered by a plate in my back window, it was not burnt out. After asking for my information the Trooper breathalyzed me from my drivers seat. He then proceeded to ask me to step out of the vehicle. I was given one field sobriety after being asked to remove my PRESCRIPTION eyeglasses. I am legally blind without corrective lenses. He failed me after I completed the test and took me to a local emergency room, where I was administered a blood test. I was not given the results.
You need to hire a DUI lawyer immediately. It is impossible to say what all of the options will be and provide advice...

Public Intoxication in PA
I'm just curious about what kind of punishment is average for public intoxication in PA (the law says a max of $300 and/or 30 days in jail), I have never had any offense in my life and I do not drive. When picked up I was just taken home after failing a breathalyzer and I was told I would get a citation in the mail. Also I am just wondering what generally happens with a citation. Will I just get a fine in the mail or does one usually have to go before a judge in such a case?
Public Drunkeness is a summary offense, punishable by up to 90 days in jail and up to a $300 fine. However, before the...
DUI Withdraw Plea
I recently plead guilty first offense DUI in PA and have yet to be sentenced. The question I have is can I withdraw the guilty plea on the notion that my previous attorney failed to fully inform me with all of the facts/conditions/ of the guilty plea and at the time of pleading and now two weeks after I plead guilty, more additional requirements that’s part of the guilty was I was informed of have now come to my attention.
Your guilty plea has to be a knowing, informed and a voluntary plea. In other words you must have been advised of the...
Any way to check if DUI charges have been filed?
I was detained for a DUI in April but have not received anything in the mail. Is there a possibility they sent to wrong address? Is there any way to check to see if charges have been filed?
Call the Criminal court office and ask.
