I got two DUIs 8 years apart. The last one was in 2009. The judge gave me a huge fine, 90 days in county jail and five years state parole, but county supervise. I am done with all of it. I don't have no felonies, other charges, alcohol problem, dr...
To my knowledge, the purchase of a firearm is governed by the feds and the LTCF is handled by the county in which you reside; typically, the sheriff's office. Frankly, I don't see a problem with the purchase but would call the sheriff's office to inquire about their prior offense policy as it pertains to issuance of a carry permit.See question

ARD stands for alternative rehabilitative disposition. It's a "diversionary" program that removes certain people in certain cases from the ordinary criminal justice process. It's benefits include no conviction as there is no guilty plea or sentencing. There is usually a period of supervision akin to probation with travel, work, alcohol and other terms as set by the District Attorney.
Your friendly neighborhood District Attorney decides who gets ARD and who does not. It is most commonly granted in first-offense DUI cases after application by the pro se defendant or the attorney for the defendant.
If the charge is, in fact, a felony, you may reduce the charge to a misdemeanor at the Preliminary Hearing and make application for ARD. Typically, ARD is not granted in felony cases both as a matter of public policy and as a matter of potential embarrassment for the publicly-elected District Attorney if such leniency were to come to light.
Your privately retained or court appointed Attorney will be able to help you decide if/how to proceed.See question

What can I expect?
Assuming your 2008 case resulted in ARD or conviction (not dismissal or acquittal), it will be counted as your second DUI in 10 years for sentencing purposes.
