DUI cases involve a number of strategic options for someone who allegedly committed that crime. In order to determine which option is best for you, it is important to contact an experienced and aggressive criminal attorney immediately after you have been charged.
This blog will deal specificially with the minimum requirements a candidate applying for the ARD Program in Pennsylvania must meet. Based on statute, a candidate may not be considered for ARD if he has been convicted for a previous DUI in the past 10 years, an accident in which someone other than the defendant was killed or suffered serious bodily injury, or where there was a minor under the age of 14 years old in the vehicle in which the defendant was operating. Other facts, such as: defendant's prior record as an adult, defendant's record as a juvenile, facts of the alleged DUI, etc. are also vital to a person's consideration into the A.R.D. program. To determine if ARD is an option for someone you know, schedule a free consultation with the attorneys at the Kelly Law Firm.
