Can my house arrest be petitioned to be finished in Ohio, from PA?
I got my 3rd dui in PA. Started house arrest in October of '14. It is currently 4 months remaining as I got a full year. Bought a house in Ohio. Living in PA with my sister. My house is 30 minutes away from my sisters house where I reside now. At all possible for my attorney to petition so I can finish it out at my house?? Not my probation, my house arrest and then probation as well.
They will not transfer misdemeanor probation between states. However, there is a way to allow house arrest to be...
Sentencing Court
My husband goes to sentencing tom at 130 for his 2nd dui and driving without a liencse. Him and his lawyer made some kind of plea for 90 days arrest and 6 months probation. Will the judge accept that or can he decline it and put my husband in jail.
if your husband has a lawyer he should be asking these questions of his lawyer.
Probation violation from drinking, has not been charged with DUI yet, has been over 72 hours and still being held.
Man i know has been on probation for 2 years now, 5 more to go, and then got arrested for speeding, his breathalizer was error. Took him for bloodwork then straight to jail. Hes been there for 5 days now, with no charges filed, has not recieved any paperwork, cannot get an answer from anyone.He has a gagnon hearing at the end of the month, his alleged drinking must be his probation violation. Are they going to hold him until that hearing? It's legal to be held for a month with no charges and no information until the gagnon hearing? thinking that his BAC was below the legal limit, and this is his1st dui offense, is it safe to assume since it has been past 72 hours and no charges yet, that they are not going to charge him with DUI?
He needs a lawyer and a bondsman. This would be my next step. Hell in Oklahoma they have three years to press charges....

What are my chances of being charged with a DUI and what are my chances of beating it?
I was in car accident a few months ago. I was severly injured and taken to the hospital immediately from the accident. My friend spoke to the officer that reported to the accident a few days after the crash and was told the officer believed I was under the influence and would subpeona the hospital for my blood results. The hospital did draw blood to see if I would need platelets and my BAC .107. How long do they have to charge me with a DUI? Is a hospital test reliable enough to be charged in court? I was under the assumption that the police had their own blood kits and procedures to ensure that the sample was not contaminated. Will I get a notice when the officer subpeonas my blood results and are those protected by doctor patient confidentiality?
A subpoena cannot be issued unless there is a case filed against you. The officer can, however, obtain a search...
Breathalyzer - Medication
Hi, Right before taking the Breathalyzer, the officer asked me if I was on any medications. I told him I was taking some cough medicine, he didn't have any response to that and continued with the Breathalyzer. By admitting I was on medication, should he have opted to give me a blood or urine test instead? Proof of this confession would be on booking room videotape. Also, he never checked in my mouth or asked if I had anything in my mouth... I had a cough drop in my mouth from when I was stopped! Thank you for your time.
There are a lot of rumors about the affect of cough medicine on the breath testing device. Many are untrue. Some, are...

We were both drinking all day. I was driving. B.A.C. .147. Hers .039. She agrees we had both been drinking all day and wants to drop the charges
The charge of DUI is one against the State and not against an individual, as a result an individual can not drop such a...
