I was told I was facing 4 days in jail with one month house arrest by my attorney. I signed off on it and he took it to the judge. Now, a week before my sentencing, I am being told by probation (not my attorney) that I am facing 45 days in jail and 3 months house arrest? What are my options? Thanks.

If 2 employees have a DUI, one is permitted to retain his job and the other is terminated for the DUI. Is this discrimination?
My co-worker and I both work in Pennsylvania and have the same job description. He received a dui in april and lost his driving privileges with the company. I also received a dui several months later. My co-worker is still currently working, but my boss told me I am terminated from my position because I'm unable to perform the duties of my job description (driving company vehicles). Is this legal or is it unlawful termination/discrimination?

Can a police officer charge me with underage drinking if I was never even accused of drinking (or breathalyzed)?
A week ago a few friends and I were hanging out at my house. I stepped outside to look for my girlfriend’s phone with her. Numerous police officers arrived. They said there was a noise complaint. We were doing nothing illegal at the time. The officers asked for ID. I asked "Am I under arrest?" An officer told me NO, but then pushed me against a wall and search my entire body. They continued to ask for ID, but it was inside my house. I was told I MAY NOT LEAVE to retrieve it, even though I was also told I WASN'T UNDER ARREST. The officers then told me they'd need to run my name through their system, but I was in no trouble. Long story short, more than a week after this I have received a citation for underage drinking even though I was not asked if I had been drinking or breathalyzed.
You may be convicted by the DJ on the officer's testimony that you had "bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol" but...
My s/o is currently in jail on a detainer from state parole. He received a dui , and this will be his second one in 8 years. He
Completed the ARD program. His p.o said if this is a summory offece he will just lose his street Time, but if it is a misdemeanor then he will go back to jail because it will be a pvc . So my question is how do they treat a second DUI if he completed ard with the first?

I live in Pittsburgh, but I got an underage drinking charge in Slippery Rock, PA. I naievly pled guilty and mailed in my fine thinking that's all it would be, then i got a letter saying my license was being suspended for 90 days. Instead of fighting it and going through the whole process and spending thousands of dollars, how do i go about getting a work license?
