Can someone lose custody of a child for a first offense DUI?
My daughters dad just told me he got a DUI. He said he got into a fight at the bar, beat someone up and left angry. Then got pulled over.

Points on License for NON- DUI or driving related Possession Conviction?
I received a letter from the PA Dept of Transportation after serving a six month driving suspension for misdemeanor possession of controlled substance (marij.) stating that, " upon restoration, PA law requires PennDOT to assign 5 points to your driving record (Section 1545 of the PA vehicle code).

Thank you for your help!
