    If this is your 2nd DUI then you will be looking at mandatory jail time between 5-90 days in jail. You could also be looking at jail time for the REAP. You should talk with and retain an attorney immediately who will be able to look over your case, answer any questions you have as well as go over all of your options including possible defenses.

    It is absolutely possible but you will want to talk with a qualified DUI attorney in the County where this occurred. Please note that you can still be charged and convicted of a DUI even if you refused. There is a lot of other facts that need to be looked at to determine what possible defenses you may have. I would strongly recommend that you talk with an attorney immediately as a 3rd offense within ten years carries serious consequences. Zachary B. Cooper, Esq. Levow & Associates, PC...

    You can attempt to sue if you want but it is certainly not a guarantee that you will be successful. That would be more of a civil case and you would want to speak with an attorney that handles these types of issues. You can also file a complaint against the police if you feel that you were treated unfairly. This is usually done through internal affairs. I wish you luck.

    It sounds like from what you describe that you would be eligible to apply for ARD. I would make sure that you talk with an experienced DUI attorney who can talk with you about your case and all options that you have. The District Attorney's office makes the final decision on you ARD application. Zachary B. Cooper, Esq. Levow & Associates, PC Limited to DUI Defense 484-614-6154--Cell 610-667-5056--Office

    I would strongly sugget that you talk with your attorney who helped out with the ARD case. This very well may be a violation of ARD depending on the the facts of the NJ case and the charges. To be sure talk with your attorney as soon as possible.

    You will want to talk with and hire a good DUI attorney. Since you already had ARD you most likely will not be able to get it again. You will be looking at a first offense DUI for penalty purposes and would be facing jail time, license suspension and as well as fines. Again, make sure you talk with a good attorney who will go over all your options and possible defenses.

    I would hire an attorney immediately and go over all of your options as well as any possible defenses. For a first offense you would be looking at a mandatory minimum of 72 hours in jail as well as a one year drivers license suspension. You may also be eligible for the ARD program. ARD which stands for Accelerated Rehabilitated Disposition is a first time offenders program. If and when you successfully complete this program you will (1) earn a dismissal of the charges (2) avoid a criminal...

    Yes it is possible. You would want to contact an attorney who handles DUI cases in the County where this occurred. You will want to go over any and all defenses that may be available to you. There is also a program called ARD in Pennsylvania which is run be each individual DA's office. If you are accepted into the ARD program there is no jail time, a license suspension of 1-3 months depending on your age, blood alcohol level, drugs in system, or refusal. Again, this is something you should...

    There are only a few ways to have something expunged in PA. Obviously if your husband was placed on ARD for one of the cases and completed everything he would be able to get that expunged. Unfortunately if he pled guilty or was found guilty he would have a conviction and this much harder to have it expunged. I fact, in PA he would have to be 70 years old or dead to have it expunged. He could also try and have it expunged by pardon through the governors office as well. This is something he...
