Q. So I received a DUI first time ever in May of 2017. I completed everything except my driving class I had scheduled but
A: Hard for anyone to answer the fairness question. Who knows, maybe? To the rest of it if you left them a bunch of messages you should be fine. You may want to consult with a local attorney. It is unusual they would supervise you in a different county for exactly this reason. Talk with an attorney or a probation officer. You should be able to get someone in Lycoming to do your urine tests. Make darn sure you are clean, you dont want to extend this anymore than necessary.
Q. I got my second and 3rd dui 10 days apart in April 2009. The judge said he has running them together as 1.
A: You probably should talk to your attorney about this. He could mean a lot of things. He could mean he is running the sentences concurrently. He could mean he is running them both as second offense DUIs. He could mean a lot of things. Chances are they will both be on your record, and chances are if its a third offense you are looking at state time. I would make darn sure I understood what running them together as 1 means before I enter a plea. Talk to an attorney ASAP.
Q. My live in relative was charged with Marijuana possession.. First offense. He did have a DUI over a decade ago.
A: Jail time is always a possibility, but as Mr. Hall ably states, it is highly unlikely in such a case like this. The key thing is that he has counsel. You should direct, or have him, direct these questions to them. They will have unique knowledge of the CWs case and possible outcomes given the DA's office and Judges in that county. Each county handles these cases a little different. Some won't even require a misdemeanor conviction. Make sure he is in contact with his attorney so your (and his) concerns are addressed.
Q. What is the minimum outcome for simple assault charges in pa? Not against a child and not in a mutual setting.
A: The minimum outcome would be acquittal, or perhaps having your charges dismissed. There are a lot of options with your charge that depend on the severity of the facts and the prior record. In some counties probation would be likely if it was a first offense and the injuries werent serious. They have to convict you first. Talk to a local attorney who can help you assess your case and talk to you about how cases like yours are handled locally.
Q. Under what circumstances do bussiness an owners not have the right to call police for trespass
A: Probably going to need some context to answer that one. If someone is trespassing you can call the police. If your a retail shop and ipen for business you have to tell them to leave first, but if you dont feel safe you can call the police. Without context its hard to answer that question.
Q. If I've maxed out my prison sentence do I still owe court costs and fines?
A: If you max out your time and dont have any supervision left, your case will likely go into collections. The Clerk enters a civil judgment against you (in most counties) for costs and fees when you are sentenced. There are various mechanisms they can use to collect even after your supervision has elapsed, including contempt charges.
Q. Pa juvie aggravated assault charges against a police officer when video evidence shows that he ran past them
A: I agree with Mr. Hall. You fail to ask a question. If you are asking if the evidence is sufficient we wouldn't know because we do not have access to discovery. If the video shows nothing happening it sounds like it would be a good case to either try or try to get the CW to come off of. The CW can be pretty unreasonable but if they are faced with an obvious loss they can be quite interested in dealing. The short answer, and most important, is make sure you are communicating with an attorney.
Q. I was convicted of dui in feb of this year at first they said this would be my second but later said 3rd 1 in Va
A: Yes a VA DUI would count if it was within the 10 year window. A lot of times they dont pull out of state drivers abstracts unless they prep the case for trial. You should talk to your attorney if you have questions about what happened.
Q. In regards to the previous question of minimum requirements of due process, at a local level
A: I think I get the gist of your question this time. The ticket is not evidence against you it is simply notice that you have committed a violation. On that ticket is information about what you need to do to challenge that violation. The ticket does not assign a value for a penalty it merely puts you on notice of the penalty so that you are properly informed when you choose to challenge or plead to the ticket. Additionally, the costs assessed by the court should you not plead in a timely fashion have been held to be acceptable in court. A ticket is not a finding a guilt, you are still entitled to a hearing.
