    Michael’s Answer

    It will be difficult to give you an answer to your question without knowing more about your particular situation. I would first start with looking into your entire driving record to see what can be done. Regardless she should probably consider hiring a criminal/Traffic Lawyer.

    You might be able to get it off the docket, that is the Pennsylvania criminal docket system. Or you could probably go to the clerk of courts at the courthouse where the final sentence was imposed and asked for a copy of a certified sentence in sheet.
