    Contact an experienced DUI lawyer in the jurisdiction asap to discuss your case. The .14 + MJ makes it difficult. Usually, the locals don't use labs for check points. Where did this happen and when?

    Ms. Hazel is spot on with her answer. If you are representing yourself (pro se), this is another reason that it is never a good idea for a person to represent themselves. If you have an attorney, stop wasting your time on this site and ask him or her to look into it, These court dates in Bucks County are not set at the 11th hour so there should have been ample time to adjust your schedule.

    You have not included any facts concerning your charges such as is it a first offense? What was your blood alcohol level (assuming you didn't refuse the test) I have been before Judge Snow a number of times in the past and have had cases with the Buckingham police. The answer to the res of your question is NO. You cann't just pay a fine or something. DUI is not a parking ticket but is a serious offense that is taken very seriously by the Court, police and the District Attorney. You need to...

    Mr. Zerillo is correct. The opinion of the PO carries a great deal of weight. The philosophy of Juvenile court is to benefit the juvenile not the convenience of another party, including a parent or guardian. If she is permitted to speak to the Court, her opinion will be given the weight it deserves. You haven't mentioned any history that you share with your mother and your prior behavior. Take her concern as a positive that she worries and cares about you. Many children aren't as lucky....

    Excellent coments by my colleagues, Results may also depend on what web site a future employer might use to check on criminal records. Official records will be wiped clean. However, private sites will not typically have the record expunged.

    Mr. Hood is correct as to the time served on probation and if there is/was an extension of time for payment of fines. The other consideration is the positive test for marijuana which is not following all the rules. The answer is "maybe" and that decision is up to his P.O. I will assume that he had an attorney for his case. If so, he should contact that attorney immediately.
