    I agree with Mr. Kenny. It may be possible to have the supervision transferred to Florida (if Florida agrees), or ask for the probation to be terminated. Talk to your arrorney asap. Do not move without express permission from the PO and/or the Court.

    Since you are in "the process" of finding an attorney, redouble your effort to retain experienced counsel in your location. Ask that attorney about this. Stop wasting time looking for advice on the internet.

    I agree with both of my colleagues in this. There is, by rule, a thirty day appeal period a summary offense. But there amy be a possibility nevertheless. As stated, expungement is a long process and never a sure thing. Retain a lawyer who is experienced in this area of the law.

    The answer lies in the terms and conditions of your ARD probation. Some counties are non-reporting probation and others require a monthly call in. My suggestion is to contact the probation office, tell them of the family plans and request that you be allowed to go. If they say "Yes" , you are good to go.

    All of my colleagues give good advice but Mr. Hood is sopt on. As a former admissions officer at upper tier college, your acceptance/enrollment can be revoked at anytime for cause including falsification on your application or arrest and/or conviction of a crime (usually a misdemeanor or higher) especially crimes involving honesty and/or drugs.

    Ever is a long time and the law may change. But the short answer for now is probably "No". You seem to have a long record for DUI, not to mention DUS DUI related and simple assault. I am still trying to understand what an "accidental" theft is.

    You have ten days from the day the ticket was issued to respond to the ticket. Plead NOT GUILTY, following the directions on the ticket. Make a copy of the ticket and contact an experienced traffic lawyer immediately. Preferably one who is familiar with the court and the police department.
