I got a DUI recently and my breathalizer was .152. I haven't gotten my blood results back yet, so it may be higher or lower than that. Maybe. Anyways, for ARD since there are three levels to that, would the fines and probation be the same for all levels of BAC? I know the third tier is 60 day license suspension and the second tier is 30 days, but are the fines for highest rate the same as for high rate? I am just wondering how much my fines will be. The results could stay at .152, so what could I be looking at in terms of probation time and fines? I know probation for the general impairment tier is 6 months and the highest rate is 12 months, but how long would the second tier be? I can't find much information on that. This is all for the ARD tiers. Any help would be great.

I got a DUI in January and started probation on May 2nd. My breathalyzer was a .154 and my blood work was a .20. It just came out that at our hospital how they do the blood work may increase results by as much as .05. Which is pretty close to the difference in my results. hey are going to review all DUI cases back to 2008, when they changed how they tested. My question is, how could I get them to review my results quickly and what actions can I take? That would put me in a lower tier for ARD and would mean I could be getting my license back next week instead of next month if they were wrong. Also, would that affect my fines and probation time or anything else besides how long I lost my license? I go to my PO this week and am going to say something to her about all this.
I believe that there may be a need to show that this mistake could have occurred in your case. However, it is very...
I was charged with a DUI a few weeks ago. I have gotten my paper work in the mail and my blood results were a .20, my breathalyzer was .15. I know I was way over the limit and was in the wrong. This is my first DUI. My question is can I get my DUI lowered to the middle level DUI instead of having it be the third level? A friend of mine had her limit lowered and I asked the public defender about it, and he said they don't do that in my county. I am worried about the fines and was hoping I could get it down a bit so my fines would be a little less. I have ARD papers to turn in but I wanted to ask around about this first. Thanks in advance. I live in Warren County, PA. I had thought about fighting it at first, since my keys weren't in the ignition. I was sitting behind the wheel though.
Sorry, but if you are currently represented by a public defender, t is unethical for another attorney to offer...
we have been fighting w/ the neighbors 4 years, when my husband was out back drinking with his friends the neighbor called the police and stated he was driving irratically. he did drive to our dumpsters 1-2 hrs prior to the police arriving but not when the neighbor said. and our driveway in our trailor park is SO bad that you can not drive fast. it is a uncared for dirt driveway how can they give him a DUI on the basis the neighbor said he was driving when everyone else was knew he wasnt?
