I missed court in May for a preliminary first DUI hearing and now have a warrant. What should I do to lift the warrant?
The warrant was apparently set because I wasn't at my address to receive my subpoena . I have now started my college semester and am afraid to reschedule because of the fear of being arrested.
You need to hire an attorney to bring you in and get the bench warrant lifted.
Is it best for me to plead guilty and ask for possible disposition options for my underage drinking citation.
My friend got pulled over for a headlight being out. Upon the scene the officer smelt alcohol and breathalyzed us. That is when i got the citation for underage drinking. This is my first offense and I can not afford extra help due to college expenses. I am just wondering if the best option for me is to just plead guilty or to plead guilty and ask for ARD.
Many attorneys offer free consultations. Call one in your state and ask.
Will dui's parole violation and incarceration hurt my chances of 50/50 custody of my 5 yr. old
I had 3 dui's the third was 1 mo. short of 10 yrs. I spent 2 mos. incarcerated for a parole violation which I did not do but the court said I was guilty. I am currently on scram. My x will now not allow me to see my 5 yr old son but 1 day a week if I am lucky. What are my chances of getting 50/50 custody if I file for that type of custody. Before my issues we had a verbal 50/50 between us no legal agreement.
While your criminal past is relevant in a custody matter, it will probably not affect your chances at a reasonable...
Can someone live in a hotel while on house arrest?
I was arrested for my 2nd dui and am looking at 90 days in jail, but was advised I could do 30 days in and the rest on house arrest if I live in the county I was arrested in. Problem is I live right across the line in another county. I am unable to move as I own my house. Is it possible to stay in a hotel for the remaining time in order to get house arrest?
Your attorney would be the best person to ask this, but I would think probably not.
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...
