My boyfriend got 2nd DUI on probation for 1st DUI?
A week and 2 days ago, My boyfriend was in a minor accident going about 25-30 mph. No one was hurt, but he had 2 months left on his probation left. His bac level on the breathalyzer was .18%, and he is waiting for court to know the blood test results. He was doing really well and completed all his community service and attended all his AA group meetings. Unfortunately, this will not only be his 2nd DUI, but his 2nd violation of probation. The first time they let him off with a warning because of sympathy for his best friend passing away. His ARD was revoked. He has a very serious problem with alcoholism and at this point has finally realized it, so he really wants to go to rehab. He doesn't want to be this person. His court date is in 3 days, but I'm not sure if he's going to be officially sentenced or if they are just revoking his probation this time around and I have to go another period of time not knowing when he'll be home. Will they hear his plea for wanting help and have mercy on him or is this situation too far gone?
He needs to get a lawyer. Contact a local qualified criminal defense attorney to review his case, his options and...

First offense DUI and, very high BAC, but actual arrest was sketchy- almost premeditated. What can I do to prepare for my trial?
First offense DUI ( and underage! ) I was pulled over two houses away from my home. The police officers were only behind me for less than 30 seconds and pulled me over for "swerving." They were hiding behind this building and PEELED out behind me, I turned my turn signal to my road ( which wasnt more than 100 ft), they flipped their lights and I pulled over. They told me I was drunk before I even rolled my window down.. They never ID'd my passenger (who was 21, but they didnt know that because they never checked her ID.) They never searched my vehicle either. My BAC was .29 and I am under 21. I have no criminal record either.. I was in a REALLY sketchy area prior (getting gas and such) which I feel has a lot to do with it.
You may be able to challenge whether the police had reasonable suspicion to believe that a traffic violation had...
My husband got 10 months for 2nd DUI. We filed appeal for sentence modification but was denied. Can we ask judge to reconsider?
We had a lawyer who did virtually nothing for him other than give bad advice. He never showed my husbands character or anything. The judge sentenced him harshly as this was his fourth lifetime DUI. The first and 2nd DUI's were 20-25 years ago when he was young and long before were were married 17 years ago. They took his license the day he was sentenced so I have to drive him to work even though he could have drove. They tell us that the 10 months will not count toward his license suspension. Really he lost his license for 28 months and then will have to have the blow and go for another year. This seems so harsh to me. We did not wreck or harm anyone. Is there anything else we can do? He is a good person that has never been in any trouble and is always helpful to others.
If you filed a motion for reconsideration, you have 30 days from the date of the order denying the Motion to file an...

Can I get ARD for DUI charged as first offense with a prior DUI 2000 and ARD in 1998? Found this below
The defendant has been found guilty of, or accepted ARD of, a charge brought under Section 3802 within ten (10) years of the date of the current offense. This limitation doesn’t apply, though, if the charge was for an ungraded misdemeanor under Section 3802(a)(2) and was the accused’s first offense under Section 3802. The current DUI involved an accident and an individual other than the accused was killed or suffered serious bodily injury as a result. There was a passenger under 14 years of age in the motor vehicle the defendant was driving.
You should be having this conversation with your attorney. I can see just from the question you posed the da would have...
