    You first have to answer the original charge of DUI, that will not have gone away simply because you fled the state. DUI's in PA can carry mandatory jail time, you should hire an attorney immediately to discuss your options. Additionally, you could be charged with contempt of court for failing to appear. The county where you are charged greatly affects what new charges, if any, you will face. The judge may also raise your bail because you are a flight risk. Luckily, MD released you, instead...

    I would first recommend you not post details about the case on a public . The standard of proof for a preliminary hearing is low, but having a criminal attorney look at the case could reveal if a mistake has been made. Additionally, there may be trial issues that need to be prepared for. Our office offers consultations on these matters, and would be happy to assist. Chris Miller 267-844-0861

    Lets start here- STOP GIVING PERSONAL FACTS ABOUT THE CASE on an online forum. You just admitted to smoking marijuana while you have an open DUI. You need to speak to an attorney privately about this case immediately. You are not innocent of the charges if you had a testable amount of marijuana in your system. 3802 defines driving under the influence related to illegal drugs as having an amount of an illegal drug in their system. Impairment is not a primary part of the offense. If the stop...

    If a warrant is issued for your arrest, the police can come collect you at any time. Hire an attorney to speak with the police if your employer reports you.

    It's not a matter of willingness to listen, its a matter of law. If he plead guilty to a Megan's Law offense, then he has to register. The facts of the case that he admitted to apparently have allegations of sexual assault, and the charges he plead guilty to are most assuredly sexual in nature. He should speak to an attorney that is familiar with Megan's law and registration.

    If the job application asks if you have been convicted of a crime, the answer is yes. If it asks if you have been convicted of a felony, the answer is no.

    I'm a bit confused. It's 2013, your license was suspended for 5 years. That seems to me your license would be back by 2018 at the latest, and probably 2017 if it went into effect in 2012. The 18 months may be a minimum license suspension, but they may have assessed a higher penalty for driving without a license (If that was the case, and it sounds like it was). I would say in all honesty, good luck getting a judge to lower the license suspension, this is a 3rd DUI.

    Your question is a bit jumbled. If the officer was "found at fault", then why is there a case against you? Your blood would be irrelevant if you didn't cause the accident, which leads me to believe there is more to the story than I'm reading above. Don't discuss private elements of your case on a public forum, hire an attorney who can review the case in full with you.
