Will a previous offense such as underage drinking affect my chances of getting ARD for a DUI charge?
About 8 or so years ago I got an underage drinking charge, my BAC was .03 i belive? Anyway I paid my fine and lost my license and its been in the past until now. I recieved a DUI and waived my rights and applyed for ARD. I have my CRN next week followed by my arraignment in Bucks County. What should I expect, will I know if i am accepted into ARD? Will this previous charge of underage drinking hurt my chances of getting ARD?
The old summary offense should not prevent you from getting ARD. The BAC may be relevant along with your license status...
My husband has just had a 2nd dui. He was in a single-car accident (he hit a wall). His BAC will be very high. He is 61 years
old and is a Type 1 DIabetic; he became very overwhelmed and was having high anxiety and made an attempt to cut his wrist. I took him to the er where they stitched him up and put him into crisis care management. He volunteered to be hospitalized at a dual-diagnosis clinic for a 72 hour observation period. According to the tier, he is facing 90 days incarceration this feeds the anxiety (and depression) further. I support DUI laws, but am fearful that he will either try to harm himself again or just leave. He is a very good man; his health and job loss along with his Type I diagnosis (a few years ago, leaves him fragile. I don't think my county supports house arrest - is there any path to pursue to avoid so much jail time? Thank you!
Unfortunately, if he is convicted then the judge must impose a mandatory minimum 90 day sentence. House arrest is very...
What do I expect from a first time DUI ?
I got into an accident on my way back from a concert where I had two beers. I was overcompensating for a turn and hit the kerb and the front wheel broke out. I immediately called the insurance company to alert them on the vehicle. Another passerby (a fireman) stopped and called 911 to report the case. State troopers came and performed a field sobriety test and I faltered on my toe to toe walk. They then took a breathalyzer and took me to a hospital for a blood test. They then took me to the station for processing and let me go with my room mate. I am working here on a student visa and am very concerned about the implications this will have. I have no priors or any records. I just had a parking ticket once. The police told me about a ADR program in PA. Any advice on what to do?

My ex got a DUI in NJ. His license is going to be suspended there. Will it also be suspended in PA?
I posted this in NJ and it was recommended I also post in PA considering the circumstances ... I don't have all the details yet but from what he's telling me his license is suspended in NJ for 7 months. Will that also apply to PA? I'm concerned for many reasons ... him getting to/from work, our children, custody, etc. Thank you for your information.
Does he have a PA driver's license? Cannot drive in any state without a valid DL. I believe PA (and NJ)participate...
I was hit by a drunk drive in Ambler last night. My car is totalled. Other driver was taken away in handcuffs.
I am sore but nothing broken. He was charged with DUI and reckless driving. What can I expect from his insurance co?
if by "what can I expect" you mean a settlement, you are unlikely to get more than nuisance value unless you have...
Unsupervised probation in Ohio for a ovi and just got a public drunkenness in PA. Do I need to tell Ohio?
I just got offered a long term career job in my field and the only thing holding me back right now is being on two year probation. During that first month of being on probation in Ohio I was arrested for public drunkenness in PA. I talked to the probation office in Ohio to see if I could get my two year term reduced. Will Ohio find out about my PA arrest?
Read over the conditions of your probation. If there is a clause that states you have a duty to report any new arrests...
