West Chester Law

My friend is facing DUI charges in 2 counties. He was arrested in one county and bond was set at $5k. There was no detainer.
I went to a bondsman and made an agreement and took the paperwork to the prison. They then told me they had to "verify his address" and he would be released the next day after doing so. The next day, they rushed and did a preliminary arraignment for the other county where bail was set by them for $10k. Today he was transported to the other county's prison. Do we have a case to request the bail from there be eliminated? I'm still on the line for the original bond...
Once the bond is posted it is highly unlikely that you will be able to get it back until the case has been disposed of....
I'm out on parole for my 2nd dui. Can I visit a bar to eat dinner as long as I don't drink?
I've completed all court conditions and currently on phone reporting for a 2nd time DUI conviction. I reviewed all of my paper work and nothing states I can't visit an establishment that serves alcohol. All it states is I can't consume alcohol. I didn't receive anything from my parole officer stating the conditions of my parole except an anytrax reporting letter. If I went out with my girlfriend for dinner at a bar/grill could I violate my parole in PA?
You can go to a bar or restaurant. what you can not do is drink. However, wouldn't it be better not to be around...
What petition form ( 490 or 790) do I use for an expungement for a DUI case in Pennslyvania?
A year ago I got a DUI along with a hit & run charge. I didnt take the blood test which caused me to lose my license for a year. Luckily I got accepted into an ARD program and was given the opportunity to have my record cleared. As of today I have completed all of the requirements of the ARD program and the only thing I have left to do is hand in the petition for expungement. I just need help determining which petition to fill out and submit. There is blank expungement order 490, blank expungement order 790, petition for expungement pursuant to P.a.R crim 490, petition for expungment pursuant to p.a. R. crim 790. Is there anyway you can help me pick the right petition to use? Also do i need to submit a copy of my criminal record with the petition? any guidance/advice will help me out alot! Thanks
First of all, I am leery of preprinted Expungement forms. There is a specific procedure involved in obtaining an...

My husband just got out of jail on 7/2/16 after serving six months and he failed to report as well as leaving a dirty drug test now on his paperwork it doesn't state that he even failed a drug test only that he did not report so I was just wondering how much time he could get.

I got my first DUI in Chester county Pa in September 2015
I did not get the ARD. PROGRAM. I had a misdemeanor in 1985. I didn't use avvo ! I did a breath test in the field later the cop wanted to pull blood and I refused because I gave him the breath test and did not pass it was .09 or .10 I think. So I'm getting a Dui. here is the big one! Penn dot gave me an additional year for a refusal but I did not refuse I also was told that they now need a warrant to pull blood if no accident and no one hurt ? Can we get the extra year off ( maybe sue the cop for false report to Penn dot ;) I am a single dad can I get my ocupational drivers also
If you refused then you refused but yes you may have a decent case but you have now two cases with Penndot and the DUI...
