DUI- PA Insurance Department Producer's License
I recently plead guilty to a general impairment DUI but have not been sentenced yet. Unfortunately, I was under the impression that I had to report a conviction to the insurance department. I recently found out that I have to inform them within 30 days of being charged. I also have not told my employer yet. What's my best course of action now? Questions: Are they likely to revoke my license? Should I tell them within 30 days of sentencing and tell them that's what I thought I was supposed to do? Should I tell them at the next newal which is in 2018? Not tell them at all and hope they don't find it? Will they inform my employer? Thanks for your help. What a nightmare!

Is a statement made under the influence admissible in court?

I was unquestionably intoxicated and was taken into custody. I admitted to have been driving, however, seeing as I was under the influence at the time of my statement, is that admissible in court without any actual evidence of being the driver?
There is no general rule that makes statements and admissions made while under the influence inadmissible. It is...

Can I collect unemployment benefits?
I was giving a drug test from my employer which I failed. The drug test was giving two weeks after I gotten into a altercation with my manager. I wasn't caught high on the job, it was just something I did to simmer down stress. However, my manager lied and told HR I was high. She never sent me home I was working every day after that until I was accused. I was denied benifits. Should I appeal?
These issues are a bit tricky. Essentially, the employer needs to have a clear policy prohibiting drug use and an...
