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.

Girlfriend was driving while we were taking our son to his Dr. appointment and she began to get real light headed and dizzy so she pulled off the road. She has been having a lot of these spells since she gave birth back in September. I opted to drive to the appointment since it was snowing out and our son was in the car. In the best interest of our son I did not want to have her driving and pass out and cause an accident. I was not driving anymore than a few blocks when a state cop pulled us over for not wearing our seatbelts. This is my second offense driving on suspended license and im trying to find out if I will possibly be receiving jail time for this. I nor my family can afford for me to go to jail, I need an answer so I can rest my mind at ease. Thank you!
Jail is a possibility, though more would need to be known. You should probably sit with an attorney to discuss the details.

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?

hosp staff and police held me down and inserted a catheter into my bladder to obtain urine specimen, i told them they did not have my consent to do the procedure but told me I had to have it done.
