DUI #2, 1st tier (.088) mandatory 5 days. Can't I split it up into 2 weekends rather than 5 consecutive days and lose my job?
My Public defender told me I can't split it up into weekend that it has to be 5 consecutive days, but my aunt who was in the exact same situation was able to do weekends and same with a friend of mine who was in the same situation. My boss doesn't know about this and my trial is next week, so I can't just tell my boss a week in advanced that I need a week off from work. Why would I not be able to split it up into weekends? I really don't want to lose my job over this and I don't know what to do.
You could always ask the judge to see if they would do it. However you should also call the person and find out if that...
Am I able to transfer my 6 month probation from PA to CA ?
I got a second DUI (1st tier) in Pennsylvania, I am moving to California in 3 months. I was told in the beginning that I can get my probation transferred and it shouldn't be a problem, but then I was told there's a chance they won't let me transfer since it's such a short probation. It's only a 6 month probation but I have planned to move at that specific date for quite sometime and I really don't want my probation to screw up that plan. Do you think if they knew the situation I would be able to transfer the probation?
There's always a chance to transfer probation. In the past I've had cases where individuals transferred probation from...
Is it possible to get my DUI case dismissed or thrown out with a BAC level of exactly .08?
I am being charged with a DUI after being arrested and breathalyzed at exactly .08. I remember the events of the night in vivid detail and dont feel i was incapable of driving. I was pulled over a half mile away from home for not staying entirely in my lane. Although that was true, i was driving through an "s" turn and knowingly placed my left tires on the double yellow line to cut the corner by the slightest bit because there was no one in the oncoming lane (it was after 2:30 am) and therefore no one at risk by doing that. Its not as if I was veering back and forth uncontrollably. Apparently I failed the 3 tests though, was breathalyzed and arrested. I feel I most likely need a lawyer but am really looking for a very reasonable price for the representation.
When you say breathalyzed, I am assuming you mean on the side of the road. If you are referring to the breathalyzer at...
I've received notice that my license is suspended in PA due to conviction of a DUI. Its a valid IL license tho as Im new to area
So my real question is does this suspension that the PA DMV sent me pertain to every state or just this one? I have no ties to the state so a warrant here does not concern me as I don't plan on coming back. I simply just want to know if say my valid IL license will come up as suspended in CA if god forbid I was pulled over just based on my letter from the PA DMV. Thank you very much
Licenses can be suspended in one state and still valid in another. Check with a local attorney. Find one here on avvo.com.
Who is the best possible attorney against PennDot?

There is no 'Best' possible attorney who handles Penn DOT matters. There are a lot of good attorneys who handle Traffic...
Is 60 day license suspension a default number when the ard approval comes in the mail?
I received my ard approval in the mail, it indicates a 60 day license suspension but as far as I know my BAC levels have not been determined. Is that standard and negotiable at the hearing date?
I recommend you talk with an experienced attorney for legal advice and guidance.
