Do I have a chance in fighting this DUI? I was parked and sober!
I am getting charged with a DUI for a Schedule 1 controlled substance (marijuana). I was parked because I was lost and needed to use my GPS. A cop knocked on my window. My passenger had weed on her body, and he picked up the smell. I did not want to rat my friend out, so when the cop asked when I had last smoked marijuana, I answered truthfully and told him it was several hours before I started operating. He made me get out of the car, asked my name. I told him and offered him my license which was in my car. He refused to let me back in my car to retrieve it. He then conducted a field sobriety test, and failed me for my left eye not crossing in when he moved the pen towards my nose (after taking my glasses off). I was then arrested and taken for blood where i had residual THC
There are some clear issues in your case. Most often the probable cause to stop or arrest are indicated. The fact...

DUI Highest Rate withdrawn
My brother was charged with DUI general & DUI highest rate (because he refused breath test). The Dept. of Transportation (Penndot) suspended his license for 18 months. Now the DUI highest rate charge has been withdrawn. Can he go back to the DOT with this withdrawn charge info and ask for a reduced suspension time?
No. The license suspension was for the refusal itself and is a civil penalty. Even if the entire criminal case...
Can a Carbon County resident get a work license when on the ARD program, 1st offense.
My husband & I were pulled over after having dinner at a local restaurant. He had beer & I had mixed drinks. He failed the breathalyzer test & I pass so the office told me to pick him up at the barracks. He never did a blood test. Had meeting with a local attorney who charged $50.00 and recommended the ARD program since my husband has never been arrested for anything before & he didn't need a lawyer. My husband is an outside contractor for the USPS & delivers mail in the rural areas of Albrightsville. Can & how could he have a work (bread & butter) license. Also, he's had his 1st hearing & the next is in November. Should we obtain a lawyer as after reading on this site it seems we made a big mistake by taking the advice of the lawyer we met who told us he didn't need one for ARD. Thanks

Will my fiance go to jail?
My fiancé's license was suspended over a year ago. He has been pulled over 4 times since then while on his way home from work. None of these times were for any type of reckless driving. Just lights being out on the vehicle. He now has a court date this week and we're worried he will go to jail.
Inorder for an attorney to address the stated concern about incarceration, much more information would be required, but...
