Been on parole for 3 years with an immaculate record. No technical or direct violations completely compliant. Had my parole transfered to New Jersey 8 months ago. Recently received my first DUI ever. I'm 33. My parole officer in New Jersey isn't sending me to jail due to my complete compliance and the fact I was honest about my DUI the day after it happened. She still however has to file a report back to Pennsylvania and I'm awaiting the outcome of the pennsylvania parole board, as far as a Decision regarding the consequences of my DUI. What do you think PA will do. I have a full time job, my own place, I'm married and have a 10 month old daughter. My employer, wife and mother in law wrote letters to the PA parole office which my NJ parole officer attached to her report as well as paperwork stating that I am attending N.A. A.A. meetings and an out patient drug and alcohol program.? Any thoughts
You need to speak to a Pa. attorney, preferably the attorney who handed your case. DWI is criminal in Pa, not so in NJ. I cannot say what parole will do. If it was NJ it would depend on many factors including the original charge and how much time is left to max the sentence.
I agree with the answer above. You should consult with the PA lawyer who handled your case to get an idea of what is likely to happen.
