    You are probably eligible to receive an Occupational Limited License (OLL) that would allow you to drive to/from work and school. However, you are only eligible after serving 12 months of your 18 month suspension. If you obtain an OLL, you are also required to install an ignition interlock during the 6 month OLL term, and you are required to install an interlock device for 12 months following the restoration of your driving privileges. In order to apply for an OLL, you must complete and...

    I presume that you were charged with what is commonly referred to as Simple Possession, in violation of 35 P.S. 780-113(a)(16). The charge is based upon "possession" of a controlled substance and not "ownership." The fact that the pills were on you means that you were in possession. The charge alleges that you did not have a valid prescription for the controlled substances and were not otherwise authorized by the Drug Act to possess the substances. The offense is a misdemeanor punishable by...

    Probably not. The record can generally be found be either searching the PA State Police Repository that is tied to the FBI records or by searching the Administrative Office of PA Courts database (AOPC). The PA State Police create a record after your are processed (meaning fingerprinted and photographed) and after charges are filed. The AOPC creates a record after the charges are filed. The critical issue in your case is how quickly the officer files the charges. I recommend contacting a...

    Your options are to plead guilty or not guilty. If you plead not guilty, the case is scheduled for a hearing, and we can appear at that hearing to either fight the charge or negotiate a favorable resolution. I recommend that you call a local State College lawyer and discuss the precise facts and circumstances in your case. You have 10 days from receipt of the citation to formally enter a plea. Jason S.

    The best way to resolve criminal charges is to talk to an attorney that has experience in handling State College Underage Drinking and Public Drunkenness citations. There are 3 judges and numerous police departments that could be involved, and the different judges and different police departments have different rules as to what is permitted with regard to agreed upon resolutions. Simply stated, you need to talk to a lawyer that knows the players involved and has a proven track record of...

    Most State College criminal defense lawyers offer free consultations. One of the best ways to review the case is to have an attorney review the Police Criminal Complaint that was filed by the officer as it shows the attorney precisely what the officer alleges happened.

    Only Underage Drinking charges, in violation of 18 Pa.C.S. 6308, are eligible for expungement when you turn 21. Other summary offenses, like Disorderly Conduct or the Public Urination ordinance violation, can be expunged if you remain free of arrest and prosecution for 5 years. While you believe that the case is a dead loser, I recommend contacting a defense attorney to see if any agreement can be reached with the arresting officer, which is probably Officer White from the State College...

    Your boyfriend would be eligible for ARD if: there was no one under the age of 14 in the vehicle, he has no prior DUI within the past 10 years, and there was no accident in which someone else was seriously injured. While he may be eligible for ARD, the fact that he is on state parole for some prior offense would probably cause the DA to reject him from participating in the ARD program. There is no right to ARD just because he is a first time DUI offender. A DA can and will consider the fact...

    If your daughter were only drinking, then she was probably charged with a non-traffic violation of Underage Drinking, in violation of section 6308 of the Crimes Code. For many first time offenders, the court has a program that requires completion of community service, counseling, or an alcohol education program, and, upon completion of the program, the charge is dismissed. If the charge is dismissed, then you can file a Petition to Expunge with the Court of Common Pleas and request that the...
