If I can beat my dui case, will penndot still suspend my drivers license even though I was technically arrested for a dui?
The night of (Saturday) 07/02/2016 in Armstrong County, PA I was stopped for a tail light being out, the police suspected me of being under the influence. They informed me of the situation if I were to refuse a blood test, thus forcing me to take one. Haven't received any results yet, however after the blood test, back at the Barracks a breathalyzer test showed a BAC of 0.028. I plan on hiring an attorney that I have previously spoke to. However, I would like as much input and information as possible, to provide myself with the best means to prevent a suspension because I have already served a 90 day suspension in 2015 for a Truancy Violation from 2005 that Penndot took their good old time, to pursue. At that time, I spoke to multiple attorneys and none of them would help me fight it. I had received an OLL from the prior suspension, and am under the impression that I can not get an OLL to maintain my means of Travel to another County in the State of Pennsylvania to maintain my means of income. Such income, to be able to pay the fines, court costs and all other costs in regards to this pending dui case. Any input or information would be a great help and greatly appreciated.
There is not much to do until the BAC comes back to determine your options.
