Does a person need to take a drug test at a plea court date?
I'm pleading guilty to small amount marijuana but won't yet be sentenced at this hearing, just putting in my plea. I was told I would meet with probation after the hearing to discuss my history so would like to know what are the chances of being asked to take a drug test?
Since you're‚Äč not on probation you won't be tested. You will soon though and they test for over the counter masking...
How long should it take to get test results?
It has been almost 2 months. Is the police officer required to tell me the results of breath test when done? He said he stopped me for speeding (I don't think he clocked me on radar), then he asked if I was drinking. I said I had 2 drinks so he proceeded with breath and road tests. If he stopped me illegally can I still be charged?
You can always be charged with a crime. The question is whether or not the government can prove that you committed a...

A.R.D And C.R.N. evaluation. I was ordered by court to get a C..R.N. Evaluation. What if i disagree with the evaluation??
My Probation officer said i needed to get my C.R.N. evaluation, so i did. I am totally out of money and it seems everywhere i go they want more? I disagree with needing anymore Treatment. Before D.U.I-I very seldom drank (social drinker). A few months after the DUI .I quit drinking all together.(2 months not a drink) (I Was 100% honest in evaluation) Somehow they evaluate me needing more programs/? that cost 70 dollars once per 6 Weeks (I can't afford that, i barley will come up with the A.R.D. Money) . Isn't the A.R.D. Course similar to any program the C.R.N. Can order? Do i have to do what the C.R.N. Decide's? It seems this is A.R.D. program Is for the rich only.My lawyers no help, he will want more money too ,that i don't have.i can only do what i can afford (Fixed income)
It is unfortunate that you disagree with the results of the CRN evaluation. However, it is a necessary part of the ARD...

Dui suspension?
I was rear ended yesterday cops was called no one file a accident report no claims to either insurance. Very nice officer but also did his job and have me a citation for driving(DUI) suspended. This would be my second time getting sited for the dui related suspension. My attorney at the time was able to get me 3 months of house arrest and I'm just not sure this time around. I've come long way as a single dad I have no one in PA to care for my children if something horrible is to happen. What are my options the officer seems very nice... Trust me I was wrong for getting behind the wheel but didn't have no one to pick one of my children for me... The other driver was at fault but everyone treated me very nice and understandable about my license situation... Please please I need help I'm freaking out and I don't want my children to ask me"dad why are you so edgie" I apologize in advance, my only wrong doing is not walking about 12 miles to pick up my child and walking back. I'm responsible for that part... I want to thank you all in advance for any light you may shine my way..
Unfortunately it is not an easy question to answer. It would depend on what is on your driving record, and which judge...
