How do I begin the process of getting my warrants dropped for not going to court.
I got two dui's and missed my court dates due to some family problems. I was also struggling financially and couldn't afford a lawyer so basically just gave up and skipped court all together. It's been about 8 months now and while it was probably very dumb to wait this long, I have no idea how to even begin to resolve this.
The solution to your problem is simple and straightforward. You speak with and hire an experienced criminal defense...
What is the penalty for having an open container as a passenger in a car in PA?
I admit. I have social phobia and feel like I need some alcohol with me when I go out, which isn't very often, since I tend to avoid social situations. I am on a disability for severe anxiety. Whenever my boyfriend takes me somewhere, I take along a pepsi bottle mixed with some malt beverage to help ease my anxiety. Occasionally I have a few sips in the car. He knows this. If we ever get pulled over for any reason, and the officer smells alcohol on my breath and finds out that that bottle of pepsi has alcohol in it, what would be the worst possible penalty? I had one prior DUI conviction in May of 2014 in PA and public intoxication back in 2012. Thank you for your help sincerely.
Depends on the case, the court, your previous criminal history. Bottom line, an online attorney can't answer this for...
How can I present the rule 600 act to my first case of DUI that I had in May of 2015 that has been continued for two years?
In May of 2015 I was pulled over at a DUI checkpoint a half mile away from the concert entrance. The police officer that approached the vehicle asked for my lisence and registration and then asked if I'd pull the vehicle over to to a few tests that my eyes looked a little glossy and wanted to make sure I was able to drive safely. I pulled over took three eye exams the officer conducted, passed two of three exams that were given the third test was for me to look up at the sky close my eyes and count to 25. He said my eyes fluttered while I counted. I was asked if I'd be willing to give a blood sample which I was to prove I was not under the influence which then I was provided with paper work that stated my acknowledgement of why I was stopped which I signed and then was released to go with no blood work done.
I answered this exact same question a few days ago. A rule 600 motion has to be filed with the judge. There are a lot...

My mother was driving my child who is 1 and I home and she had begun to show impairment, so I asked her to pull over. We had smoked marijuana earlier in the day, but I am not aware of what my mother had taken right before she started driving. She seemed fine initially but showed significant impairment halfway home. She was pulled over and charged with a DUI. she also had no license come to find out. She did still have marijuana in her car, but I immediately notified the police that it was in the vehicle and handed it over. I just received notification that I am to be in court in a month and that I've been charged with possession and child endangerment. What weight does these charges have on me and what could the repercussions for the child endangerment charge be on my behalf?
If you have been charged with endangering the welfare of a child, you are facing serious charges. Depending upon the...
