    Yes, you can be charged with robbery and homicide during a drug transaction; it all depends on the facts. <a href="http://www.legalphilly.com/criminal/murder.php">Homicide</a> is a serious offense I would suggest hiring the right criminal defense attorney to help your nephew out.

    In order to be charged for a DUI in Pennsylvania you need to be in physical control of the car at the time you had alcohol in your system. Based on your facts I don't think that is the case. I would suggest hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent you in your DUI matter. Michael Kotik | 267-265-4553 | www.legalphilly.com

    Without knowing more of the facts, the only thing I see here is that you had another person with you. If that person would be willing to testify to your set of facts your might have a good case at trial. There are other factors to consider; like your prior record, your character, etc... If you are a first time offender (DUI), ARD is also an option. ARD/DUI is a probationary program for first time DUI offenders. Upon successful completion of the probation period, the criminal charges of DUI...
