    My colleague is correct, unfortunately for you and other people convicted of a criminal offense many years in the past who have led exemplary lives since. Perhaps something for the legislature to address.

    Attorney Morgan has given you excellent advice and counsel concerning your case and the breathalyzer situation with the state police. As of today, the PA State Police are not using breathalyzers due to the recent court ruling. I would be pleased to discuss this further in my Abington office in Montgomery County or via phone at 215 884 6743. You can click on my wb site to learn more about me and my 41 years of experience.

    The advice given by both answering attorneys is well placed. I don't know why the Jamaican government wold care since you have not be convicted of a crime at this point. However, in an abundance of caution, (and it seems that this is important to the probation dept.) call the Jamaican Consulate and inquire.

    It is always good advice to consult with an attorney in the locale of your conviction who is knowledgeable in the particular area of law that is involved. Another source you might try is the probation department/officer that is supervising your case in NY. They may be able to advise you of your options in completeing these programs. PA/Montgomery County does recognize programs in other states. I recently had a MA resident who was allowed to complete his community service and safe driving...

    As stated by my colleagues, the most recent DUI in PA will be your 3rd offense within the 10 year "look back" time period. The prosecutor may not have the Florida convictions in the file, but if asked about any prior convictions you have to answer truthfully. Unless there are alternatives to jail in the jurisdiction, you are looking at extended time in prison. Get the best dui lawyer you can find.

    Good advice from all my colleagues. Your "google" is possibly too specific as to location. There are many experienced dui lawyers who, while not in Warminster or Southampton, have represented many dui cases in those locations as well as the rest of Bucks County, including myself. Search again and check out website,

    Stop posting questions here and speak to an experienced criminal defense lawyer in the Willow Grove/Montco location. Since I don't know the fulls facts of your case, I can't answer with certainty about jail, but my best guess now is "no" with the proper representation

    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.
