    It is likely that this case will be treated as a second offense DUI. While your juvenile history may have been expunged, the DUI will appear on your driving abstract, which prosecutor's often review prior to sentencing.

    It is extremely unlikely that you will receive any period of incarceration for this case. You will likely receive a period of probation and have to comply with a drug evaluation. If you are convicted of the possession of a controlled substance charge, you will likely receive a 6 month driver's license suspension in addition to the other consequences mentioned. Therefore, it is critical that you obtain an attorney who can appropriately negotiate the charges or raise a defense on your behalf...

    She is not likely to incur jail time whether she attends rehab or not. Most counties will not offer a second ARD, but she is still likely to only receive probation. However, if she is convicted of the possession of a controlled substance charge, she will incur a 6 month driver's license suspension.

    You probably received a 5 year revocation, as opposed to a 5 year suspension. If you incur 3 convictions for certain enumerated offenses within a 5 year period, PennDOT can revoke your license, based on you being deemed a habitual offender.

    A guilty plea or nolo contendere plea are considered convictions, even when the charges or sentence are negotiated.
