How long do they have to charge somebody in Pennsylvania for going to court drunk
My daughter recently got herself in trouble and had to go to court she really screwed up and went to court drunk they lodged her in jail for 8 days and then released her under Court supervision and it has been a nightmare ever since. She wrote the judge an apology and has really tried to do the right thing but her Court supervision officer is always on her case and continuously harassing her. It's almost like they have her number and just will not leave her alone now. The public defender's office appointed her an attorney who does nothing for her what should we do

I was involved in a dui hit and run. Should I turn myself in?
I hit someone who was walking. I'm not sure how badly they were injured. I don't have insurance and my car is not inspected. I was drunk and scared so I kept driving. I'm filled with remorse. I would turn myself in, but I'm still scared. Would the law be more lenient if I turned myself in? I hate to say it, but they may never put it together, however there is a chance they will. What should I do?
Consult a criminal defense attorney to determine the best way to turn yourself in.

1st dui and I already had ard for a non dui offense about 9 years ago. I'm guessing I probably wont qualify for ARD again, but I'm not sure. If I don't get it again, are the mandatory jail times ever negotiated into say community service or house arrest etc?
