i have a lifetime record of 4 dui's in DE failure to appear for a dui in delaware county. what will i expect to happen ?
Any state in which you seek a license will check your record. Wisconsin asks about duis in other states on its application. Delaware will not seek to give information to Pennsylvania but will provide it if asked. There is a national database for compact states.
If you did not appear for court in DE, there likely is a warrant out for your arrest.
Not clear on your question. out of state dui convictions count for determining whether a dui arrest in Delaware will be treated as a felony. i am sure pennsylvania counts out of state convictions also. In delaware a 4 offense in a lifetime is a felony exposing you to a 2-5 year sentence, but it can be suspended except for 6months which must be served.
