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?

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.

Hello, I am confused on what to do and would greatly appreciate any advice. It was my college graduation week and my friend took me to a friends house for some drinks. We gave some of our friends a ride back . One of them started throwing up and paul the driver took an immediate right so that she could throw up in an alley. When leaving the alley, we were pulled over simce my friend had taken a one way street. Before the cops could come to the car , we started looking for documenst and switched so that i could find them since the car is mine and i had alot of stuff. I am now being charged with a dui. I have been offered the ARD program but i wasn't driving. My friend the driver has agreed to testify but the public tells me to take the ARD. Please advice . How about the traffic cameras?

My daughter,19,had just finished her 90+90 day suspension as part of her DUI that she got in May 2012.She was (still is, I guess) on the ARD program, she took all the classes, etc.Her "eligibility date" to drive was Sept.30.Tonight,she just got cited again for underage drinking. She was walking home and got stopped on the street by the state police, they smelled alcohol, and of course, her breathalyzer was above the limit (0.02 for underage?). The trooper wasn't helpful with our questions,he said it would be up to the judge if she would lose her license again in addition to the fine.Is this true?We just paid off the first fine and were about to start the process of expunging her record.What will her record look like now?She had a useless public defender before,does she need a lawyer now?
Should I get a lawyer to do my DUI expungement (I completed ARD and paid all fines) in PA? Or would I be wasting my money?
First tier, first offense DUI. Need it off ASAP for a job, supposed to be 90 days but I know that is near Impossible. Just want to know if I should do it myself or get a lawyer
Some counties will expunge automatically upon completion of ARD, so the first thing you should do is make sure that the...
