How to get non DUI ARD expunged? Completed ARD program in April in Clarion County.
Earlier this year I was placed on non DUI ARD for False Identification charges and an underage drinking and criminal trespassing charge were Nolle Prossed. I completed Non DUI ARD in April 2014. I want to expunge it, but I have no idea how. My probation officer was no help and my Pubic Defender was no help either. I went to the court house in Clarion, PA and they were of no help to me either and were confused. How do I get it expunged?
There are rules of procedure you must follow. You may also need a complete criminal history record from the police. I...
Is a flat tire enough for probable cause in a DUI arrest?
I had a flat tire and was pulled off the road onto a private drive. As I was waiting for help to arrive, the local police pulled in behind me and smelled alcohol on me. They then contacted the state police. I was offered a sobriety test and declined. Then I was unable to complete the breathalizer due to health issues. So, they took me to the hospital for blood work and I was then free to go. My vehicle was off and pulled safely off the road. Were they permitted to stop and subsequently accuse me of DUI?
Changing a flat tire in and of itself is not probable cause for a DUI. However, an officer acting within his community...
Can I be chaged for a DUI after 50 days of the incident date?
I was arrested 4-7-2013 for DUI accident in which I sustained no injuries and totaled my vehicle. No other property, vehicles, or people were involved in the accident, just a tree. I refused ambulance personal. I was cuffed and transported to my local hospital for blood work. No breath or sobriety on site only blood test at the hospital. I was then transported to the local station at which point I was read my rights. It is now 5-21-2013. There were two officers that I dealt with that night. A female officer who is very new to the station was the arresting officer for the DUI, and a male officer who filed the accident report. After talking to the male officer tonight as I was concerned that I haven't received any paper work at all yet, he stated that the female officer still had not filed the DUI charge as of this point and won't be available until 5-28-2013. The male officer in our conversation this evening stated that he couldn’t speak for another officer but he stated that he always files DUI Charge within 5 days as that is the law to file DUI Charges. He also said that if he were me that he would call the chief but not until I contacted an attorney. So at this point I am wondering based on the information that I have received tonight if I can even still be charged for a DUI. It has been 44 days since the date of the incident now.
I'm sorry to disappoint you, but the police have up to two years to file a DUI charge against you. In the meantime, you...

At an ARD hearing is it likely the Judge will ask if anyone has been arrested since the original DUI arrest?
I'm curious what questions might have to be answered or if the hearing is simply proceedural?
It depends on the county, some will outright ask, some will ask that you sign a document saying you have no other...
