Sykesville Law

Can I be held legally responsible for people under age 21 drinking in my house after I'm asleep?
My sons, ages 19 and 20, are home for the summer, but I'm still working and have to get up early. If they have friends over and I check to make sure that no one's drinking but then they start drinking (nothing I've supplied) after I go to bed, can I be held responsible for underage drinking?
Generally speaking if the police were to find underage drinking on your property that can cite you with a criminal...
DWI. arrested in NY (by my grad school). no accident. no injuries. no jail time at this point.
I failed field test. (A pass or fail only) Went back to station & did breathalyzer-1.13 Never in jail cell-officer looked up my record with me there & said my record was clean. He also said he'd tell court I was cooperative & honest. Got public defender b/c in grad school & did not want to involve parents. Been in front of judge, it was "adjourned" twice, 2nd time so that I could speak to officer in case he could recommend reducing down to DWAI. But he said he coudl not-poilcy of dept not to when BAC was over .10. 2 ques: should I & can I still get an attorney? I don't want to make judge mad if I change at this late time. (Court date is 7/13) what is worse case scenario-I am home in MD for summer-what can I do if I have to take court ordered DWI classes, etc?
The public defender may help you, but if you are not satisifed with the deal they offered or the way the case is...
Got a DUI in PA in December of 2009 and went on ARD program in February 2010. Can a DUI in MD (resides in PA) in 2014 be 2nd?
Does the 5 year rule go from date of incident or date of sentencing?
In Maryland, you cannot receive probation before judgment if you had a prior DUI within the last 10 years. If the ARD...

If I am granted a PBJ in Maryland for a first time DUI, does the PBJ get reported back to home state of Mass?
I tapped a vehicle pulling out of a parking spot after a few beers and an officer witnessed it and decided it was ground for a breathalyzer. I came in at .09 BAC. Clean record. Never been in trouble. I read online that insurance companies do not find out about PBJ's, so I was curious since PBJ's are not considered convictions would it be reported back to my home state? I have also read online that the interstate myth regarding Massachusetts not finding out about out of state DUI's is a farce due to the new DLC (?). Since Mass. doesn't have a PBJ law, I'm puzzled as to how this would effect me back home dealing with the RMV.
Do not go into this case with a pbj attitude . Low breath test cases are defensible in some circumstances. Md will...
