Unlawful stop DUI?
Hello, I was pulled over recently and was charged with a DUI for marijuana in my system. I was not impaired at the time, but the officer believes that I was. He said I failed the field sobriety tests and took me in for blood. His reason he said he pulled me over was because I went on the line, I don't even believe that is true and I am pretty sure I was driving 100% fine. Nothing was wrong with the car or any other reason to pull me over. This is my first DUI and since i'm waiting on the blood work, hiring an attorney right now is pointless until then. Is it possible to fight this due to an unlawful stop? Does anyone have any similar stories where they got it thrown away due to unlawful stop? I also want to mention that it was a holiday weekend, at night and on a quiet rode. I really believe he just pulled me over because he felt like it.
You posted before I believe. Who told you its pointless to hire counsel? Defenses need to be explored now. Attorneys...
What are the penalties for driving on a dui related suspended license about to get reinstated and no reason for cop stopping us
My boyfriend was driving on a suspended license he is in the process of getting his license back but the vehicle was driving rough so he offered to drive until the next exit (we were on the highway) anyway as we were almost to the exit an officer drove beside us and slowed down just to come behind and pull us over he immediately asked if he (stated his name) was the driver (the vehicle is in his name) he said yes and the officer said he is driving under a suspended license. He never stated a reason as to why we were stopped. I don't want my boyfriend to go to jail or be in danger of losing his driving privileges for longer than he should. We know he shouldn't have been driving and I immediately drove after that as we were to the exit anyway and honestly we do know it wasn't smart but he did find out that we needed oil and whatnot but now we are wondering if he should get a lawyer and if he pleads guilty will he end up in jail or losing his license for more than 30 days again he is in the process of getting his license back
He could do 60 or 90 days of jail. There are ways to avoid jail.

Yes. You must request your attorney to file a PetitionFor Expungement. Otherwise, the arrest records and court...
If someone moves out of state while their DUI case is pending, where and how will their sentence be imposed? (PA to FL)
This person has had four DUI arrests from 1996 to 2015. The latter case is pending. They plead guilty to the first three, from 1996, 2004 and 2007. The one from 2007 falls within PA's 10 year lookback period. The charge was "VC3802C, DUI at highest rate of alcohol, Grade M1". The most recent happened three months ago. Charges are "VC3802 DUI", and "VC3714, Careless Driving, Grade S". This most recent case is currently pending, and the person is planning to move to FL at the start of the new year, to start at a new job and be near relatives. So if they relocate permanently to FL, where, and how, will their sentence be carried out? Will FL be imposing a sentence based on PA's laws, or FL's laws? Or will the person have to come back to PA? How harsh a sentence should be expected?
If the crime occurred in PA the person will be sentenced in PA and PA will determine how he serves his sentence. If he...

Sure, you can be charged for impaired driving.
