I returned to Pa. in 2010. With no help from any gov't office I called the Northampton Da office. Was told if I pay $2500 all charges would be dropped. Now theyre saying I still owe on dui #2
I would call your local county bar association for a good referral for a criminal defense attorney in that area. They would know if you are eligible for the ARD program or the best way to fight it.
I would contact the Court where the 2nd DUI is located and ask question. The clerks are usually good at answering questions about specific cases. If you still do not understand what is going on, contact an attorney in that jurisdiction for assistance. Most attorneys will give you a free consultation. Take advantage of that service if you can.
I would contact the attorney who represented you on any of those charges to see if he or she can sort this out for you. If you were not represented by an attorney then I would retain one to look into the matter. There are too many cases that are many years old for you to figure this out on your own and I would not trust the court system or the DA's office to give you accurate information. Not because they would lie to you but because they will have no desire to look into the matter but instead will just give you what ever numbers or information is showing on their computers.
You should contact an experienced Criminal Defense Attorney who practices regularly in Northampton County. Most will offer free telephone consultations or even free in-office consultations. Good luck to you.
By providing a brief answer to this question, I am not intending to establish an attorney/client relationship. This response is for general informational purposes only.
