    Once you have waived them they are deemed waived until you invoke them. Hire an attorney to see if the statement can be suppressed or if there are any other defenses.

    That is the way that it works in New Jersey. However, it is not liek that in Pennsylvania. I am guessing that is the reason that you ask.

    The best approach is going through your attorney. Given the fact that your offense was serious enought to result in a state prison sentence, you certainly had counsel. It may be more difficult now, because he or she is likely to have closed the file. Regardless, I would try contacting him/her. Michael L. Doyle (215) 900-5565

  4. What is the difference between Delta-9 THC and Delta-9 Carboxy THC? How do you get carboxy thc in your body?

    In PA, if you have either the metabolite (Delta-9 Carboxy THC) or the active ingredient (Delta-9 THC), you are guilty of a DUI. I am not certain that is what you were charged with, however, it appears that since you were "pulled over" that is what you are concerned about. I know that this seems unfair, but that is the law. It is so stringent, that it appears that even if you smoked it legally in the last month in Amsterdam or in California with medical marijuana, you are still in violation...

    If this is his first offense, I view jail as extremely unlikely (unless the nose was broken, which may make a little more likely). Without a weapon, on his own property, no weapon, no serious injuries etc. I would be surprised by jail time. However, he will receive probation and have a record if convicted. As a result, an attorney is important.

    The difficulty is that you are saying that there are no funds to pay the attorney. Many times you would want to have different attorneys for the criminal and civil cases. You should schedule a time to meet with someone and discuss the details, rather than asking the above question online. Meet an attorney and discuss the case.

    You will be assigned a public defender if you qualify, based upon income. Interms of the case being transferred, no it cannot. If convicted, it is possible that the probation could be transferred to the county that you live. However, the case itself will not. Michael L. Doyle (215) 900-5565

    I am not licensed in Tennessee, and you will need an attorney licensed in the state where this occurred. However, if your license is suspended there, pa will learn of it and your license will be suspended here too. Regarding whether to tell your employer-that is up to you.

    Getting an attorney is advisable. First, prior to going into ARD the attorney would see if there is any other way of beating the case. Second, most counties have a serious issue with putting someone into ARD when an accident has occurred. As a result, an attorney is advisable.

    It sounds as if you may be on ARD, though you have not said that. Each county in PA does it differently and some do not test on ARD unless they think there is an issue. Some POs will view a first drug test as a baseline. Therefore, if there is some in your system they may accept the possibility that it is residual. Further, it may be out of your system by the time you are tested. Whatever you do, do not screw up the opportunity to get this dismissed in ARD.
