If someone moves out of state while their DUI case is pending, where and how will their sentence be imposed? (PA to FL)
This person has had four DUI arrests from 1996 to 2015. The latter case is pending. They plead guilty to the first three, from 1996, 2004 and 2007. The one from 2007 falls within PA's 10 year lookback period. The charge was "VC3802C, DUI at highest rate of alcohol, Grade M1". The most recent happened three months ago. Charges are "VC3802 DUI", and "VC3714, Careless Driving, Grade S". This most recent case is currently pending, and the person is planning to move to FL at the start of the new year, to start at a new job and be near relatives. So if they relocate permanently to FL, where, and how, will their sentence be carried out? Will FL be imposing a sentence based on PA's laws, or FL's laws? Or will the person have to come back to PA? How harsh a sentence should be expected?

Who do I need to contact in order to obtain a notification of completion of the ARD program in Monroe County?
I completed the Monroe County, PA ARD program back in 2011 and don't recall where I placed the letter notifying that I have successfully completed the ARD program, or if I had ever gotten one. I have the certificate for the Highway Safety class, but a prospective employer wants proof of the ARD completion and I do not believe that certificate will be enough. Should I call the Clerk of courts, DA, Probation Office? I need it rather quickly as well. Thank You.
Probation. District Attorney's office. Clerk of court.
