Another underage drinking charge. Facing jail time?
Am I likely to get jail time? Last November, I got picked up for underage drinking and agreed to go to outpatient counseling as part of my plea. Last week, I got picked up again for a bunch of minor charges, like disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. I have completed the counseling, but not the aftercare at the point of the arrest. Today, I got in the mail summons for arraignments, one for the recent arrest and one for the one back in November. My question is what's likely going to happen? Am I going to be re-sentenced for the original charge? Am I going to have to go to jail or rehab?
With two charges, you need to talk to a local attorney. Search here on Avvo under the Find a Lawyer tab. At least...

Counseling completed, fines paid, attending AA mtg and seeing monitor. anything change like interlock, etc?
I suggest that you re-post your question with MD as the jurisdiction to receive responses from attorneys who are...
I was stopped for MIP, what should I do and/or what happens next. Will I get info in the mail? Should I call my lawyer father?
I am a 20 year old male who was stopped by the police with a solo cup in hand. The police asked what was in my cup, smelled it, and dumped the contents in the grass. He asked for ID but since I didn't have any, he asked for my info. I started to lie but then told him the truth. He talked to someone and got my license number to confirm my info. I never admitted to drinking alcohol, nor was I given a field sobriety test or a breathalyzer. We talked for a bit while one of the confirmed I was who I said I was and they said it wouldn't be major since it was my first experience with any cop. Then they told me to leave without giving me a citation about what I was being charged with. They threatened to arrest me for giving false information if they saw me again.
It may be nothing. They might not charge you. However, they can. You would get a ciation in the mail. The tests...
I am under supervision of dui court. I injured my back and am in severe pain and am being denied any type of prescribed meds. ?
I have been to the doctors and they've prescribed me non-narcotic medicine and i am still not allowed to take anything. My doctor has also put me on temporary disablity from work. I have been suffering debilitating pain for a month now and for the court to deny me any sort of relieve seems inhumane and down right cruel. My doctors have tried to talk to my P.O. to let him know my situation but nothing is getting through to them. If my pain continues my doctor wants to operate on my back. I guess my question is there anyway i could sue the court for pain and suffering or is there anyway i can get them to listen to reason?
The question regarding suing the court for pain and suffering should be listed under another practice area. That being...
RN in PA. Got a DUI/ ARD. Expungement should be done in Sept. Do I need to report this on my renewal app? Mine expires Oct 31.
probation is done in March @ which time I'll be filling out the application for expungement. They said this process can take up to 6 mos. which brings us to Sept. My nursing renewal is due this October 31st. I was able to find a renewal application for RN's whose license expired in Oct of 2014. On this form, it states "You are not required to disclose and ARD or other criminal matter that has been expunged by order of a court" I can't find a renewal application for Oct of 1015. I need to know if the RN renewal application states the same thing.
I would guess that the renewal application won't change significantly from year to year, but I could easily be wrong....
Got a DUI. In ARD.6 mos probation is done end of this month.What is fastest way to expedite expungement? Nursing license renewal
My nursing license renewal expires Oct 31st. I saw a license renewal form on the State Board of Nursing website that said I am "not required to disclose any ARD or other criminal matter that has been expunged by order of a court". What are my chances of having expungement done before that date? Can I hand deliver documents? Will hiring an attorney help? I haven't received the expungement packet yet. I spoke with my PO, she said I could speak with her secretary about it. She said it gets held up at the Central Repository in Harrisburg.
You should be able to obtain an expungement by October if you do it correctly and yes, hiring an attorney will help to...
RN arrested for DUI, received ARD (no conviction). How would I answer the questions on renewal application? Do I need to do VRP?
I had no driver's license suspension, passed the drug and alcohol eval. Is there a way to avoid VRP from the Board of Nursing? Is it a good idea to go to them in person with my questions and explanation of the circumstances? My DUI lawyer fees alone were $5600! I have no more savings. But if you think I can get out of VRP if I hire a lawyer, then I will. What do you know about VRP and the disciplinary actions they impose?
This is definitely something your lawyer who you paid all that money to should be willing to work through with you....
