    A lawsuit accusing the Pennsylvania Department of Education of failing to investigate hundreds of complaints of poor conditions in the Philadelphia School District moved forward in Commonwealth Court yesterday. The complaint, filed last year by seven parents in the district and Parents United for Public Education, alleges that more than 800 complaints from families were sent to PDE in the 2013-14 school year, but that PDE did not respond to most parents, and in the cases where it did respond, the department claimed it was not responsible for investigating the claims.

Questions on my first DUI in PA
My car was stuck right outside a parking lot. I tried to back up a few times but in vain. After about 6-10 minutes cops showed up and tested me. This happened in Chester county in Pennsylvania. They took me for blood test and then kept me in the cell for an hour. After that they dropped me home. Depending on the blood test result this may be my first DUI. No one was injured and no damage to the car. 1. I have a family with two kids below 5. Can't afford to loose my license 2. Can this affect my employment? My job does not require driving. 3. I have no criminal record before this... Do I have a chance of just getting a warning? 4. How much does the ARD program cost? What is the time commitment? 5. When can I file for expungement Thanks for your help.
First and foremost, it is unlikely that you will receive a warning or any slack from law enforcement if they determine...

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.
I recieved an underage drinking charge and I blew .00 twice and then blew .03 after about 30-45 minutes. Can I fight this?
I am 19. Thinking the officer would not believe me if I told him I wasn't drinking I told him that I had a beer thinking he would cut us some slack for being cooperative more likely. Also they didn't inform us of our rights.
Absolutely. Best not to go at it alone though. Having an attorney with you will likely allow you to work out...
