My question is a generalization of what sentencing I may possibly be looking at. I appreciate your time and advice, in advance.
When I was 18 (06`) I received my first DUI in PA. I did what was asked & got off probation 2 months early. October `14 I drove 45 mins to spend the night with my nephew bc I told him I would & wanted to keep my word. I received a 2nd DUI...highest bac bc I refused the BT. I moved to the county where this occurred so I could easily get to the RIP program they recommended & if D&A treatment. The day before sentencing my friend was helping me move. We had dinner about 4pm and each had 2 drinks. On our way back from my apt I got pulled over around 11 pm. My friend threw out a cig butt & the officer said I crossed lanes. I failed the FST & refused a BT. I tried calling my lawyer for a continuance all night to no answer and in the am he just screamed & hung up. I have warrant(s), no lawyer or $
You should call your lawyer to discuss a potential sentence on the 2nd DUI. As far as the new case, you're facing a 1-2...
Completed ARD in Allegheny County in 2009/10 - will it show up on FBI Background Check now?
I was arrested for a DUI in 2009 in Allegheny County. I completed ARD in early 2010. Now undergoing FBI background check (including fingerprints) for federal employment. Will this show up? How can I get a Certificate of Dismissal from the Court if the case has been "expunged"?
Unfortunately, there will always be an FBI record of your offenses. If you are applying for a federal job, your DUI...
Will I be required to submit to a blood test at my D&A assessment for a DUI?
I was arrested for my first (and only) DUI and refused a BAC test at the time of arrest. I recently completed my CRN evaluation per the conditions of ARD. I was told that prior to scheduling my AHSS classes, I would be required to submit to a full D&A assessment because of my BAC test refusal. I'm quite confused: considering my BAC refusal, will the assessor attempt to take my blood, breath, urine at the time of the assessment (or for any other reason), or can I just expect a battery of questions (similar to the CRN eval, but more in depth)? I've nothing to hide, but I would like to know in short what I might expect at my D&A assessment.
As a general rule, I tell people assume you will be tested everytime you go to court for anything. The reason for this...

Currently on basic probation in ohio since I live in pa. (No monthly visits nor piss test, just paying fines) I recently got a dui in pa and gonna have to serve 5 days in pa.. Question 1, Will ohio see I'm in jail in pa and put a detainer on me to send me to ohio to serve my remainder probation time? Question 2, Will Pa put a detainer on me and contact Ohio for my probation violation then send me to Ohio?

If a Dui says Nolle processed does it still count against me if I receive another Dui?
I had two Dui that were put together. I was sentenced in 2008 for my second Dui. The other says Nolle processed. I Got another Dui recently, will this be my 3rd or my 2nd again?
Good news for you. If a criminal case is nolle prossed then it is as if you were found not guilty. For sentencing...
I got arrested, first time DUI in PA. I blew pretty high,.25. Am I looking at jail time?
The police officer asked me while I was in the holding cell if I wanted to use the address of my license for the address they would send my court papers to, I replied yes. Turns out he wrote "308" instead of "302" and I never got the papers. A warrant was issued for my arrest after I didn't show up for court and I went to jail for 14 hours because of this mistake. I turned myself in after hearing that cops showed up to my house(I was out of town). I now have paperwork confirming this error. The judge eventually let me leave and issued me a new court date. Does this clerical error help me in anyway? The summons was sent to an address that does not exist which caused me a serious headache.
More facts are needed to fully assess your situation but it is possible you avoid jail time. You should talk...
