What do I expect from a first time DUI ?
I got into an accident on my way back from a concert where I had two beers. I was overcompensating for a turn and hit the kerb and the front wheel broke out. I immediately called the insurance company to alert them on the vehicle. Another passerby (a fireman) stopped and called 911 to report the case. State troopers came and performed a field sobriety test and I faltered on my toe to toe walk. They then took a breathalyzer and took me to a hospital for a blood test. They then took me to the station for processing and let me go with my room mate. I am working here on a student visa and am very concerned about the implications this will have. I have no priors or any records. I just had a parking ticket once. The police told me about a ADR program in PA. Any advice on what to do?

My ex got a DUI in NJ. His license is going to be suspended there. Will it also be suspended in PA?
I posted this in NJ and it was recommended I also post in PA considering the circumstances ... I don't have all the details yet but from what he's telling me his license is suspended in NJ for 7 months. Will that also apply to PA? I'm concerned for many reasons ... him getting to/from work, our children, custody, etc. Thank you for your information.
Does he have a PA driver's license? Cannot drive in any state without a valid DL. I believe PA (and NJ)participate...

I am sore but nothing broken. He was charged with DUI and reckless driving. What can I expect from his insurance co?

Unsupervised probation in Ohio for a ovi and just got a public drunkenness in PA. Do I need to tell Ohio?
I just got offered a long term career job in my field and the only thing holding me back right now is being on two year probation. During that first month of being on probation in Ohio I was arrested for public drunkenness in PA. I talked to the probation office in Ohio to see if I could get my two year term reduced. Will Ohio find out about my PA arrest?
Read over the conditions of your probation. If there is a clause that states you have a duty to report any new arrests...
ARD and applying for RN license
3 years ago I got a DUI and was put into the ARD program. I am now applying to nursing schools and hope to eventually apply for my RN license with the PA board of nursing. I saw my lawyer a few months ago about getting it expunged and after putting my name and my docket number in the Phila. court system, nothing came up. He said there was no record of my arrest and that it must've been expunged already. The union I am in with my current job did pay all my legal expenses but at the time I was told I would be financially responsible for the expungement. He said they may have covered it because at one time they did that. I ran my record through the PATCH website and it came back with no record. Would it show up for and FBI fingerprint check? I just don't know whether or not to disclose it.
An additional source to check on expungement is the court itself. Contact the court where the conviction occurred and...
What will happen at my ARD hearing?
This week I will be attending my ARD hearing for a DUI in Montgomery County. I have completed All the pre-conditions (Saftey school, CRN, Community service) and will have my license with me ready to turn in. The only condition I will not have completed is payment of my costs and fees. Based on the fact I completed everything else, would the court allow me to be accepted into ARD and then put me on a payment plan for my fees? I'm not sure if this would hurt my chances of getting admitted into ARD
Usually they will allow you to go on a payment plan.
