Will they run my bf's 2nd offense dui and then another 2nd offense dui 4 months later concurrent?
He got his 2nd offense dui, refused blood test.. they let him out on bail with SCRAM monitor. 4 months later he got another dui (which i believe will be charged as his second 2nd offense dui) on a controlled substance. Will they run these sentences concurrent? And will they give him credit for time he's incarcerated now? or maybe they will reset bail at prelim?
As a wise man/woman once said, "Anything is possible." To maximize the possibilities it is necessary to have the...
I plead guilty to a DUI in Dauphin County , however, the breathalyzer read zero. Can this be reversed and/or vacated?
The breathalyser read zero but the arresting officer said he visually identified my impairment. Under the direction of my attorney I plead guilty.

My son had a false positive & now in jail for not drinking the scram said he was. what r our options his lawyer doesn't know
has been on the scram since December it has shown 3 drinking episodes. 3/9 he was arrested for drinking the third time from sat.11-4 Sunday. He was at home with family and in bed by 12. No drinking. His lawyer has fought this in the past and lost we don't know how to deal with this now. How do we locate a lawyer that will help us. Can he go to court without a lawyer and what will the outcome be. Funny thing is everytime he was supposedly drinking we had chicken mashed potatoes gravy filling and always plenty of chocolate to eat. He also vapes regularly. The one time he was accused he ate a whole bag of pretzels. I am lost as how to clear him.
SCRAM devices are pretty darn accurate really. Perhaps your son needs to avoid eating the "chicken mashed potatoes...

What to do if you can't afford to travel to your DUI hearing in another state?
My brother is an indigent 30-year old, currently living in California after attending alcohol/drug rehab. He depends on my parents for financial support and does not have a job. He had a DUI in Pennsylvania, where my family is from, back in June. He has a court date in Pennsylvania in early December, but does not have the money to buy a plane ticket to attend the trial. He cannot afford a lawyer and has requested a public defender. Under these circumstances, is it possible to either 1). request that due to financial circumstances the trial be conducted via teleconference or 2). have a public defender or someone else appear on his behalf? I feel strongly that my parents should not pay for his transportation from California and I believe they are under no legal requirement to do so.
Your parents have no legal obligations to do so, but your brother does. There is no such thing has a telephonic...
