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...
Suspended License in Different State?
Hi everyone, and thank you for your time. I recently got a DWI in New Jersey. My diving privileges in NJ are suspended for three months. This was a month ago. My home state (part of the interstate compact) has still yet to suspend my license. As long as my license in my home state is valid and I am not driving in NJ - am I OK to drive? Best,
Yes. As long as you are not driving in New Jersey.
Denied employment for expunged DUI charge (ARD)
I recently applied for an Independent Contractor position and was denied the position due to a DUI on my driving record. The DUI in question was expunged from my criminal record after I successfully completed the ARD program. Can an employer legally deny me this position based on an expunged record? The employer is headquartered in California, but I reside (and would have been working) in Pennsylvania.
This is a question that would probably be best directed towards an attorney who specializes in employment law. As far...

On DUI Probation for 5 years, does this mean if i violate I am looking at 5 years in Jail?
My Docket sheet says: IPP Min of 90.00 Days/Max of 59.00 Months 20.00 Days. I served 10 days in jail, as well as 90 days house arrest. If i violate, is it 5 years or not since it doesn't say anything about a suspended sentence.
Sounds like you received a jail sentence followed by parole. No one can answer your question because it depends on the...
