It was sentencing for a dui
If you have a lawyer, you should contact that attorney. If not, you should immediately consult with a experienced DUI Defense Attorney that handles cases in that county.
Based on my experience handling cases in Snyder County, PA, you should have already entered a guilty plea if we're scheduled for sentencing. Additionally, since it was for a DUI, you could be facing mandatory jail time. An DUI Defense Lawyer can help you evaluate your case, contact the court to address the warrant, and proceed with sentencing.See question

Currently, an "expungement" is not available for an adult "conviction" for a misdemeanor or felony. A "conviction" results from a guilty plea or finding of guilt by a judge or jury.
Based on the information provided, this seems to be the category you fall in and, thus, would not be eligible for expungement. However, most people use this term broadly to define their goal to get the conviction removed from their record. Depending on a number of circumstances, you might consider a pardon, which is a different vehicle to achieve a similar result.
Ultimately, if you want to explore your options, you should consult directly with a criminal defense lawyer in a confidential setting.See question

I have no prior misdameanor or felony conviction s. I had a bac of 1.8 and 5 nanograms of thc in my system. I was told the most I was looking at was 3 days in jail if I didn't get ard (which I was told was likely). I'm really scared now because m...
With no prior criminal history, you should only be facing the 3 day mandatory minimum jail sentence if you do not receive ARD.
This may have been a breakdown in communication. For example, in an effort to deter you from more problems in the future, a driving school instructor may explain that if you received a Second Offense, DUI based on the combination of drugs and alcohol, you would then face a minimum of 90 days in jail. Additionally, if you are a minor and receive ARD, you would be subject a 90 day license suspension specific to the DUI.
Ultimately, the best way to resolve any confusion is to consult with an experienced PA DUI Defense Lawyer and review your case in a confidential setting. Good luck.See question

The filing of a new criminal charge can certainly lead to your removal from the ARD Program, as a new charge without a conviction can be the basis for a violation.
The fact that you have been charged cannot be changed. However, you control how you respond to it. The best way to protect your interests and control the outcome on both the new criminal charge and the potential violation is to get a criminal defense representation for your Preliminary Hearing.

No one was home, but the front door was accidentally left unlocked. door to the garage tripped the alarm.
While it may be lawful for the police to enter a home incident to an alarm, the entry and any search should be limited in scope. The lawfulness of any search upon entry would require a fact-specific inquiry.
Ultimately, the basis for your question must relate to a desire to seek some specific remedy. For example, if criminal charges are filed incident to the search, you may be looking to see if the evidence is legally seized or obtained by the police.

If my boyfriend is being charged with one count of unlawful possession of drug paraphanelia and a manufacture with intent to sell charge and hes been in county prison for a year in 8 months .. he still has sentencing so if he gets a 3-6 and is eli...
As Attorney Jones has suggested, if your boyfriend has counsel, he should address this issue with his attorney.
However, a RRRI minimum should be 3/4 of the original minimum sentence where that minimum is 3 years or less. Otherwise, the RRRI minimum should be 5/6 of the original minimum sentence.
In a case where the original or true minimum sentence is 3 years, the RRRI minimum should be 27 months.
As previously indicated, the specifics on sentencing, RRRI, and the application of the same should be addressed with your boyfriend's attorney directly. If he does not have counsel, he should seek the representation of an experienced criminal defense lawyer immediately.See question
