    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.

  5. Can charges be dropped/dismissed if a state trooper that wrote my Police Criminal Complaint in Pennsylvania put a fake birthday?

    I would contact an experienced DUI attorney to go over all your options and possible defenses. It is not a guarantee that your charges will just be dropped because of an incorrect birthday. Many times there are problems with the affidavit of probable cause and this can be amended at the preliminary hearing. Again, I would make sure you talk with an attorney about all of this as soon as possible so you understand all of your rights and what options you have to potential fight the charges.

  6. To contest the Citation 3111(A)

    Seems like the officer may have cut you a break as many moving violation tickets get reduced to 311(a). Be careful what you write on these sites as well. I know you want to contest this, but even in your question you admit to speeding. This is something that I recommend you sit down and discuss with an attorney so you know your rights and options.

    Until your license is restored by PENDOTT and you physically have your license back the DUI related suspension remains. I would contact an criminal defense attorney immediately and discuss all of your options.

    A lot more needs to be known. For one thing there are mandatory sentences for DUI's depending on if a person has any priors, criminal history or if anyone was injured in an accident. If it is your first offense, even with an accident you may still be eligible for the ARD program. Successful completion of this program and there would be no jail time, no conviction and 3 month license suspension rather than a 1 year suspension. You should contact an attorney and talk with them about...

  10. I got charged with a 2nd DUI(1st was 7 yrs ago), but am only being charged with a 1st offense. Will this be corrected at trial?

    The first thing I would do is hire a qualified DUI attorney in the County where it happened. Unfortunately when the paperwork is orginally filed it almost always shows a 1st offense which will be amended at the preliminary hearing or when the case moves up to the county. It is very important that you talk with an attorney who can go through all your options for a 2nd offense within ten years as well as any possible defense. Which county did this happen in?
