How long does it usually take to be charged with a DUI?
I got pulled over for speeding in a work zone, ended up getting arrested for a DUI. Went to the hospital for blood work and then to the barracks for my fingerprints and picture, then let go. It's been almost a month and still haven't received anything in the mail. The arresting officer did not give me any type of paperwork. Do I just sit and wait to see if charges are being filed?
Pretty much. A month or two isnt unusual as the state labs bog down this type of year. You can check the public...
What can I do if I was given a dui, when I was not in the vehicle.
I had been arrested inside a hotel while my car was outside in a parking lot. The cops assumed that I was still under the influence of weed and decided to go search my vehicle, and also charge me with dui/duid since I must have driven to the hotel under the influence. I had smoked the day before and a few hours prior the day of, but when I was driving and when I was in the hotel, I was not under the influence. I was then taken to a local hospital about an hour-hour and a half after I got arrested initially to get blood work done. What can be done from this point on. I am a young college student, with no prior arrests or convictions. This was the first time I got arrested.

If you are placed under arrest at a DUI accident do you need to be fingerprinted?
My son was in an accident and charged with DUI. They took him from the accident scene to the hospital for blood work. I then picked him up at the police station in the parking lot when they arrived 40 minutes after the accident. He was not read his rights or technically placed under arrest by the police officers although his paperwork received 3 months later charging him with a DUI says that they read him his rights 4 the arrest. The whole thing sounds a little fishy to me like someone wasn't doing their job so my question is wouldn't he have had to been fingerprinted and booked if he was placed under arrest after they took him to the hospital for the blood work?
He does NOT have to be read his Miranda rights at anytime before, during or after an arrest or blood testing. The only...
Technically speaking, is "adjudication withheld" in the ARD process for a DUI in Pennsylvania?
Over ten years ago I entered and successfully completed an ARD program for a DUI offense in Pennsylvania, and all records have been sealed/expunged as proscribed by the ARD process. I've been asked by a non-state entity if I was ever convicted of, plead guilty or no contest to anything other than a minor traffic offense. I am being asked to include all misdemeanors and felonies, "even if the court withheld adjudication so that you would not have a record of conviction. " I am just having trouble determining if the ARD process works in the way the quoted statement describes.
If the expungement was done correctly, and if it has been over 10 years since you were admitted into the ARD program,...
Is this standard protocol in an accident?
My 23 year old son got into an accident with his own car. He was driving without a license (Not a suspended lucense) and he blew a .23 when given the breathalyzer test. No other vehicles were involved and no private property damage was done. He did take out 3 arrow signs in the turn. When I arrived on the scene, they had already given him the breathalyzer and had him in handcuffs. They told me to meet them at the state police barracks in 30 mins to pick him up. When I arrived there, a cop car pulled up, got him out of the FRONT seat and gave him a lecture on drunk driving and released him into my custody from the parking lot. My son told me that they had stopped at the hospital on the way and they drew blood. It has now been 2 months and we have not heard anything about a duo and received no paperwork in the mail pertaining to this accident in any way. What if anything is to be expected? Is this normal procedure? I always heard of people staying overnight in jail to sober up.
No not standard protocol he should have been arrested. He should expect a warrant and charge for DWI, best to consult...
