First bit of advice is to concentrate ONLY on winning the criminal case. This should be your family and friends entire focus right now. Do not assume your son will win the case. Innocent people are convicted everyday. Nothing else matters right now except the felony charges facing your son.
Second to charge your son the police need probable cause. This is a much lesser burden (easier to prove) than proof beyond a reasonable doubt, which is needed to convict him of criminal charges. A...
I suggest you speak with a lawyer. Any your son should speak to a different lawyer. The police can file traffic citations against you if they think you let your son drive without a license.
Possession of the gun would be based on constructive possession. If it is your car, the police may make an issue out of it. The biggest question is what did your son say to the police. If he said the gun and paraphernalia was yours you got trouble.
Get a lawyer for you and your son.
Underage drinking citations I suggest you do not take the portable breath test. I also suggest you remain silent and do not admit to drinking. Keep quiet and watch and listen to what the police say and do.
I definitely suggest you make an appointment with a local state college criminal defense lawyer and see what the local police say and do. It cannot hurt.
Not drinking underage is cheaper and safer and the best advise.
Go to the Courthouse. The License appeal is a public record and ask to look at the file. License appeal is filed in the civil division, the Prothonotary Office. License appeals are usually scheduled after the criminal case, either by delays of the Court or continuances by the driver.
The Criminal case, the DUI, would have the docket online and in the Clerk of Courts.
Receiving stolen property can be charged if you knew it was stolen or if you should have know it was stolen. You clearly do not know, but you seem to be thinking it may be. What leads you to think it may be stolen. If it looks to the police that you should have know it was stolen (it has somebody else's name in it, if the price is so clearly below the true value or the condition of the property make it look like it was recently stolen) then you may be charged. If a guy offers to sell you an...
Zero. You will likely get jail time if you are convicted of a burglary while on probation for receiving stolen property. In fact you will likely remain in jail on a probation detainer until the new charge is resolved with a trial or plea. Even if you are found not guilty of the new charge you will likely stay in jail until the trial.
The question you should ask your lawyer is how can you avoid ending up in state prison for the probation violation and the new charge.
No points but that statute is for displaying a plate that does not belong to your car. By get a new one did you just put one on the car or did you get a replacement license?
I'd plead not guilty and make sure the paperwork is correct.
If you have a legal license plate you should win the case.
I suggest you get a lawyer. And get a proper plate.
There is a law that allows the license suspension to continue until all court costs are paid (it is part of the treatment plan). You may have a defense if they restored your license.
I suggest you find out exactly how much the court says you owe. The attorneys fees to fight the suspension may be more than what you owe. You need a restoration requirements letter from PennDot and your driving record. Look at PennDot's website.
