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?

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.

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?

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.
