Hello, I was arrested on October 7th for DUI. This is my first offense. I was taken back to the station, given a breathalyzer test and released. My Preliminary hearing was on January 14 and I waived it. I signed the waiver of the Prelim and for Counsel. I scheduled my Court Reporting Network Eval that day and completed it on February 5th. I a scheduled to appear for Formal Arraignment this upcoming Wednesday, February 13, 2013 at 8:30AM. like I said, this is my first offense in PA and I would like to be accepted into ARD. Am I able to waive my formal arraignment in this case? How do I apply for ARD in Armstrong County? Can I waive my formal arraignment on the morning of the arraignment date? or the day before? Thank you so much for your help!
