Was i cited for DUI?
I was stupid and got pulled over for DUI. I was taken to the station and had to give a blood test. Thing is now, I'm not sure what is going on. The officer was nice enough to take me home after the fact but I didn't receive a ticket or any paperwork what so ever. What is going to happen now?
In about a week you will get a criminal complaint in the mail. It will also include the date of your arraignment and...
Is it legal to be convicted of 2 counts of receipt in commerce marijuana? Will they tack additional court costs to duI?
I was set up by ci selling small amounts of cannabis 6 different occasions. They charged me with a slew of charges and I am happy it was at least dropped from a felony but my lawyer and da came up with a plea deal which also included a separate second dui charge which happened on a different day. My lawyer said you don't have to do any time but you have to accept 4 receipt in commerce charges for the weed. I responded that was reticulum as it was the same person could have set me up 100 times as I had no clue. I told him he had to better. He. Inferences with da and judge and they knocked it down to two receipt in commerce charges. I still complained this was bullshit and asked he fight to get it knocked down to 1. He insisted it was a great deal and I did not want to ride going to trial. So my question is it legal to charge me twice for receipt in commerce in thus instance and since both the dui and weed case were at same court hearing???....will they charge me the court costs twice??? The weed charges cost me 2200?. I think my dui fine is $750 plus $224 lab fee. Will they add all the bs court costs on top of this. It is consecutive probation charges.... 2 y and 3 y FYI

I need to know if they can issue a DUI to someone who was parked in a parking lot
My nephew got a DUI. He was not driving when they found him he was parked in a parking lot. The story gets complicated because he was with my 8 year old son at the time. I was the one who called the police because he was so drunk he could not communicate and I could not find him. So he was charged with child endangerment as well.
The short answer is maybe. In order to provide legal advice, I would need to know more about the specific facts. I...
How can I get my driving privileges back as quickly as humanly possible?
I am 20 years old and my license was suspended for an "underage" (four crushed empty beer cans in a trash bag found by two nosy park rangers.) I am a resident of Pa and have had one prior underage, this bars me from receiving a probationary or limited license. There is no way to drive for over a year and I was wondering if there are any other appeal processes or driving classes that I could take to reduce the sentence or if there is a fee that I can directly pay to instantly reinstate the license? Thank you very much for your reply
If you were convicted in both cases, the answer is no. Penndot is dificult to work with on their best days.
Suspended License in Different State?
Hi everyone, and thank you for your time. I recently got a DWI in New Jersey. My diving privileges in NJ are suspended for three months. This was a month ago. My home state (part of the interstate compact) has still yet to suspend my license. As long as my license in my home state is valid and I am not driving in NJ - am I OK to drive? Best,
Yes. As long as you are not driving in New Jersey.

Denied employment for expunged DUI charge (ARD)
I recently applied for an Independent Contractor position and was denied the position due to a DUI on my driving record. The DUI in question was expunged from my criminal record after I successfully completed the ARD program. Can an employer legally deny me this position based on an expunged record? The employer is headquartered in California, but I reside (and would have been working) in Pennsylvania.
This is a question that would probably be best directed towards an attorney who specializes in employment law. As far...
