I recently got a DUI where I live. I had gotten one in another state over 20 years ago when I was in college. I did the classes and got everything reinstated back then (paid all the fines). This is my first DuUI here. No one in the car and no accident. Would it be possible to get ARD?

Based upon what you have written about and the fact that your last DUI was over 20 years ago there is a possibility that with the right judge you might get ARD but such is unlikely given the fact that the charge is a moving misdemeanor. I suggest that you consult with a competent criminal defense attorney avout your matter for advice as to how to resolve the situation.
