    If your ARD is for anything other than a BAC less than .1 or for incapable of safe driving you will lose your license and the court has no discretion. The only other way to avoid a license suspension is to get a disposition for something other than DUI.

    For the first three years you are limited to driving between 6am to 7 pm and you can't drive a commercial vehicle. However, you can negotiate the driving times with Penn DOT as they recognize not everyone lives a 9-5 lifestyle.

    This can either be a big deal or nothing. It depends on whether or not ID is really an issue or if the cops just marked down the wrong hair color. More facts are needed.

    Generally you would be looking at a fine but there is a diversionary program available as well as the possibility if you pay court costs and behave for a few months the charges can be withdrawn. Make sure you either pay the resitution to the store before you go to cvourt or have the money woth you at the court hearing. The best thing to do is invest in a lawyer.

    More information is needed other than just this one instance. Were you in a school zone again? Do you have other convictions? What was the drug and its weight? DA Zanic is an aggressive prosecutor but he has been a fair man to my clients in the past. There is also a difference between what you could get and what you will get and there are so many variables to this situation that a simple answer is not possible.

    This is a second offense and you would be subject to a mandatory minimum of 90 days in jail to five years in jail. An alleged blood or breath reading is juet that. Alleged. There are multiple problems with blood and breath testing in this state. You must seek out an attorney that regularly challenges the scientific aspects of the test and the field sobriety tests as well.

    Absolutely get a lawyer and let them do all of the talking. The worst case if you have no prior record is probation but the vast majority of these cases result in either summary violations or ARD. I suggest if you have the funds, that you tell your attorney that you can pay the restitution right away as money in these situations helps.
