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.

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...
