Underage drinking expunging?
I went to the magistrate and paid the court fine. I accepted the license suspension and classes. Ill be taking the classes soon but my license suspension will be in September to November. I was wondering if this will be expunged from my record after the classes or after the suspension. I want to apply to colleges next year (senior) and am hoping I won't have to deal with this on my record in the application process. Thank you
I would make sure that you talk with an attorney in the area where this occurred. If you pled guilty to underage...
PA.. DUI. i have,10 days from the date of arrest to schedule a DMV administrative per se hearing? When is the arrest date?
By reading advice on this site, i am a bit confused. I Read the officer must submit a arrest complaint to district Majistrate with in 5 dyas? Is This true?( i found no record of this online) I also read the 10 day DMV rule *above*... My blood bac should come back below ,08. But i am not sure. Do i have to sit in limbo until either a summons comes saying i am over .08? What if its below? will they even contact me? Was i under arrest the day of blood test (over 3 weeks ago)? how can i follow the DMV rule if i have no paperwork? Or no police report to look at. Do i just wait to be contacted by Mail? will they conatct me if there is no dui? Sorry for all the questions but i never even had a traffic ticket in 30 yrs of driving. I didnt want to be calling the magistrate or polic.

After refusing a subority test do to a disaiblity . Officer said " I have to hand cuff you and take you to hospital for blood test"(no miranda rights read) at the hospital was asked what meds i was on . So i replied honestly.

at a recent stop, i was pulled over for crossing line to soon b4 turn. Imentioned drinking beer. instantly had breatherlizer in my face. wasnt blowing hard enough 1st 2 trys- it beeped once 3rd try .Then i was asked to step out for sobrity test. I refused due to a disabilty.STILL TRYED THE 9 STEP AND PEN TEST . bACK-UP OFFICER SAID I HAVE TO HAND CUFF YOU AND TAKE YOU TO A NEARBY HOSPITAL FOR BLOOD TEST. WAS NEVER TOLD I WAS UNDER ARREST?

DUI in PA.-If no ticket for traffic violation that you where pulled over for -was issued that night. would that be a defense?
I was pulled over for crossing yellow line to soon b4 making a turn-did use signal.Afterward i said i did have a few drinks , took breath test refused the sobority test and was took for blood test Can not getting a traffic ticket that night throw out the blood test or is the staue of limitations on traffic ticket 1 yr also? Am i wrong to think- with no legitamate pull over- blood test can be thrown out? Is my 1st offense- is it typical all will come in mail with results and summons if over limit? i do believe in the area i live- between 11 pm and 2 am officers look for any reason to pull people over. DUI'S i heard of in my area (which is many) happen to be mostly minor traffic violations. like no license plate light or head lamp or crossing. white line isnt bright enough to see :examples
