Can the police use the ER routine blood test when I arrived, can I be charged with DUI at this point?
3 days ago in PA I was in an accident where i hit a phone pole, spun and hit another car. Others were ok, police were called by witnesses. I remember hitting and airbags going off. I don't know for how long time went, but I then remember sirens and a police office asking if I blacked out, I said no but I was obviously in shock. He asked me what happened and all I could say was I don't know. He asked I was ok I said I think so and when i tried to get out of the car I couldn't walk on one leg. I sat back in the car. Cop had my info, so I had to of given it. It my cell which only I would know on initial police report. Never asked if I was drinking. EMS never asked. I was able to answer all questions. I had a procedure in ER and I remember the cop giving me the initial copy of the report with the card of where my car was towed. He asked no questions. I was never asked by the cops to give blood or a breathalyzer. ER later said blood confirmed I was way over the legal limit. Initial report mentions nothing, I was never asked. Can they obtain the blood test even though it wasn't asked by the cops and chain of evidence wasn't secured? PA needs a warrent for blood or consent.

My wife drove my car without a license got stopped. I got a fine too. Can i get out of it without her getting in trouble?
I was at work and my wife was driving my car without a license. She got stopped by local PD in Pennsylvania. Is there any defense for me to get out of the fine without her getting arrested for grand theft? I was already at work for almost 3 hours when this happened. She is a permitted driver and she got pulled over for the inspection being out and the police found out she didnt have a license. I wouldnt want to say she stole the car because technically she didnt but I am trying to avoid the fine for her driving.

If the judge says 60 days, can Penndot still say 90 days? Or is what the judge says goes?
my DUI was for drugs and I am 20 years old in the ARD program. The judge said 60 day suspension, but my public defender said Penndot could make it 90.
PennDot makes their own rules, so they dont really listen to judges. DUI under 21 usually results in a 90 day suspension.
