Is it possible to get two dui sentences changed from consecutive to concurrent?
I was sentenced to state prison for 22 1/2 months to 10 yrs for two consecutive 3rd dui's in August of 2011. They were both highest impairment charges. The judge denied me a county IP sentence which would have included a concurrent sentence. I had a public defender at the time because I could not afford a lawyer. I have done my jail time and want to know if its possible to get my sentence changed to a concurrent one so that I am not on parole for the next 7 years.
You are on state parole for 2 DUI sentences imposed almost 3 years ago. Moreover, as I understand your question, when...
My brother will be getting parole in July, 2015 from DUI. However, his home plan has been denied due to his son
living there & the choices his son has made. His son has had parties and allowed his mother to come there whom she is part of the stress issue for my brother. Parole says his son has to move out before my brother can come home. What do I need to do to move his son and grandson out so he can return to his own home?
You inquiry is not really clear. They need to move, if he is going to live there. If they won't leave voluntarily, that...
I completed my probation term but still owe fines. Can I drink alcohol or would that be a violation?
My PO said my case would still be open until the fines were all paid but I wont be on "probation, probation" and that i do not have to check in, so does that mean i wont be charged additional supervision fees? And they wont be checking in on me? Or testing me? Would it be okay to be in a bar and drinking??
Your proposed activity seems highly risky. Save the money you would spend in a bar to pay down your court financial...

Yes. PA is required under the Interstate Compact on Driver's Licensing to suspend your license here reciprocally....
First offense DUI and, very high BAC, but actual arrest was sketchy- almost premeditated. What can I do to prepare for my trial?
First offense DUI ( and underage! ) I was pulled over two houses away from my home. The police officers were only behind me for less than 30 seconds and pulled me over for "swerving." They were hiding behind this building and PEELED out behind me, I turned my turn signal to my road ( which wasnt more than 100 ft), they flipped their lights and I pulled over. They told me I was drunk before I even rolled my window down.. They never ID'd my passenger (who was 21, but they didnt know that because they never checked her ID.) They never searched my vehicle either. My BAC was .29 and I am under 21. I have no criminal record either.. I was in a REALLY sketchy area prior (getting gas and such) which I feel has a lot to do with it.
You may be able to challenge whether the police had reasonable suspicion to believe that a traffic violation had...
Can you be issued a blood test without being told the result of the breathalyzer if i appeared and feild tested sober?
I was pulled over for speeding and crossing the fog line while driving my drunk friends.I was pulled out for a sobriety test because there was a strong alcohol oder coming from the car.I complied and was given a feild sobriety test.i was never told my feild test results before being handcuffed and put in the police car to be tranfered to an ordered blood test where i was asked questions before i was read miranda rights but remained cooperative.In addition I had asked the officer why he was issuing me a blood test and got no response.I was released from the hospital to a sober driver,but wasn't issued a single ticket.I was told by the partner officer I couldve taken another series of breathalyzers but opted for the blood test.Im under the impression I'm pending a dui,speeding,and fog line
There are a lot of responses to your issue, but the fact remains you need to get an attorney to help you fight the case....
My husband got 10 months for 2nd DUI. We filed appeal for sentence modification but was denied. Can we ask judge to reconsider?
We had a lawyer who did virtually nothing for him other than give bad advice. He never showed my husbands character or anything. The judge sentenced him harshly as this was his fourth lifetime DUI. The first and 2nd DUI's were 20-25 years ago when he was young and long before were were married 17 years ago. They took his license the day he was sentenced so I have to drive him to work even though he could have drove. They tell us that the 10 months will not count toward his license suspension. Really he lost his license for 28 months and then will have to have the blow and go for another year. This seems so harsh to me. We did not wreck or harm anyone. Is there anything else we can do? He is a good person that has never been in any trouble and is always helpful to others.
If you filed a motion for reconsideration, you have 30 days from the date of the order denying the Motion to file an...
