    I would suggest contacting your Attorney if you had one for this case. Many times at the time of the sentencing you are informed by the Judge what time you need to report. In other words every case can be different. You can also try and get a copy of the sentencing sheet which may also have the information you are looking for.

    I would hire a qualified attorney who handles these cases to make sure you get the best result and go over any possible defenses. If you can avoid this on your record that would obviously be the best outcome and will avoid any problems in the future. It is considered a summary offense and will that is not as serious as a misdemeanor or felony it can still be a "red flag" as you put it to employers.

    First of all I would make sure to contact your attorney ASAP in the County where this occurred. Every County handles the ARD program differently. It is certainly not a guarantee that you will be removed from the program. If for any reason you are removed your case more likely than not will be placed back in the system and you will have the right to take it to trial or enter a plea. Again, I would discuss all this with your Attorney ASAP.

    ARD is a first time offenders program. Every County runs the ARD program differently. I strongly recommend that you contact and hire a good DUI attorney in this area because there

    She absolutely can drive right now and like the others stated she may 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 record (3) avoid jailtime and (4) recieve a 1-2 month suspension rather than 1 year. Each County runs its own ARD program so you want to make sure to talk with an experienced DUI...

    I would contact an immigration attorney to advise you on how to answer this question. I don't even see what question was asked of you.

    I would retain counsel immediately as the police can file the charges 44 days after the incident. I would agree with my colleague that you should stop posting facts about the case on a public site like this and hire a good DUI attorney to help you.

    I would find a local attorney that handles these types of cases. Mr. Keller is absolutely correct in that you should stop posting information about your case on sites like AVVO that anyone can read. Talk about your case in private with your attorney.

    It sounds like since you are going to AA as well as counseling that you may have a good chance to be placed onto house arrest. Each county is different in how they handle house arrest and some don't even offer it. Therefore I would make sure that if you have an DUI attorney (and you should) that you talk with them prior to sentencing so you understand what will take place and everything the Judge could do. Keep going to AA and getting the counseling as that can only help you. I wish you luck!!!!

    Talk with an attorney immediately about your situation and what you should be doing now. The good thing is that you blew a 0.0. This is something that you may want to fight but again I would talk it over with an attorney so you understands all your options. If you would like to discuss this further please feel free to give me a call anytime today. Thanks Zachary B. Cooper, Esq.
