The wait is for the blood work. He should request his license. There is no automatic suspension in Pennsylvania.

Likely possession of both marijuana and paraphernalia. Depending on other circumstances, you could be facing additional charges. I suggest retaining an attorney to assist you and ensure any potential pentolites are kept at a minimum.

I doubt it -- but I suppose you should look to the terms of your lease (instead of the DUI laws).
Best of luck to you, and her. If your daughter needs some assistance with her DUI case -- and there are legal traps for the unwary! -- feel free to have her contact me offsite.
