first time offence
Difficult question to answer the way it is asked. You will go through the usual procedures for a DUI. If this is a first offense, you should qualify for ARD. If you are asking about your status with the Guard, it has been my experience representing members of the military in similar cases that it will probably have no effect on you military status. The main concern could be the drug use aspect of the case. You must retain an experienced criminla defense/DUI lawyer asap. Do not attempt to represent yourself.See question
Apparently I have to let the PO search my room, but how in-depth will they go, and is there any way to keep them out? Also, I've been reading the House Arrest Handbook, but how much of it applies to me? Is it just "no drugs, weapons, or alcohol" p...
Mr. Jones is right on the money. I can assume that you did not violate the law and that you should not have to surrender your right to privacy and right to live like a law abiding citizen but that is the situation your housemate has put you in. Talk to the PO.See question

My colleagues have given you and your brother some good advice... stop talking to the police and this website and contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer who is familiar with the court and police in Abington.

This in and of itself would not be enough to invalidate a citation but may be one of other possible issues that may be involved. Consult with an experienced traffic attorney who is familiar with the police and court that the ticket was issed.See question
I need to know if I will pass act 14 clearance before I I invest time and $ into an education. Thank you.
Mr. Bailey has offered an excellent opinion and sound advice. There are many websites that claim to provide records checks but are grossly inaccurate and out of date. They are typically not controlled by an expungement order unless you can identifiy the site and provide them with a certified copy of the Court Order. And even that may not resolve the problem.See question

The shoplifter is detained in the store but instead of calling the police the store sends a fine out through a law firm. The cost of the merchandise was under $100 and the fine is for $196.
Once again, my esteemed colleague, Mr. Hood is correct. This so called civil fine is allowed by the PA legislature for retailers to recover the loss incurred by a shoplifter (guilty or not) and even if the retailer recovers the item(s) and subsequently sells it or them in the course of business.See question
