Can we fight a charge of 75 Pa.C.S.A. 1543(b) due to DUI related offense that has been served?
Was stopped on 09/29/11 due to expired registration plates. My license had been suspended in 2008 due to DUI offense, and had completed outpatient treatment, paid the correct fines and was currently waiting to have our D.O.T to advise where to have Interlock ignition placed. During the traffic stop, car was parked at shopping center parking lot, was moved onto main highway where officer was waiting for vehicle to be moved and stopped .5 miles up the street. I was mailed summons of 75 pa 1543(b), 75 pa 1786(f) and 75 pa 1301 (a); and was advised by court to set payment plan in motion. however, contacted today to be advised that 1543(b) carries mandatory jail time and fines, and to plea 'not guilty' and hire public defender by the magistrate's office.
