    I suggest that you contact an experienced Montgomery County DUI lawyer rather than try to represent yourself. The law remains the same just Court procedures have changed and you won't be able to google this information. Remember the old adage in the law. "He who represents himself, has a fool for a client".

    The short answer is, "yes. They can charge your son". However, Iagree that based on the facts you have given, no charges should be filed against him. Always a good idea to have the name and number of an attorney ready if needed.

    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.

    In most cases, a speeding ticket will not affect ARD. I suggest that he respond to the ticket within 10 days of issuance and plead NOT GUILTY. and contact an experienced traffic lawyer in the area where he got the ticket.

    I agree with both PA colleagues and to an extent the attorney from California. This case is controlled by Section 3802 (a) and (f) of the PA vehicle code. Your friend must find a lawyer who is experienced in the county where the offense occurred. I will assume for the moment Bucks or Montgomery county. As a side note to our California colleague, I attended law school in California, but would not offer advice as to the law there, even if I knew the answer to the question.

  10. If I am on A.R.D. in Chester County, will I be allowed to leave the country for a family vacation?

    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.
