Plea Agreements in DUI arrests
Are plea agreements to reduce the chargers from a DUI arrest to a dry or wet reckless driving charge common or rare in the City of Philadelphia? I know that it depends on the case but I have read a few articles that mention the high workload of the DA office in major cities like Philly.

DUI, probation.
My brother got DUI in 2014. As per court order he was supposed to attend some classes 3 times (3 days). He did, but only 2 times. He paid all fines, but missed one class (one day). Now, he called the court, and they told him everything is ok. Is it possible he has a warrant issued? How can we find out about it? Can he get any documents from the court that he fulfilled his obligations? I know he had a probation officer assigned, should he contact him? I mean, we have no idea if can even drive in PA (we live in NJ). Please help.
Your brothers first call should be to the attorney that represented him in this matter.
Is it worth it in the long run to get my case expunged?
In 2014, when I was 18, I got an underage drinking citation. I plead guilty, paid fines, and did community service in order to get my case dismissed. I'm a junior nursing student and I'm afraid that when I graduate in 2017, my dismissed case will come up in my record when employers view my criminal record. I was wondering if it was worth it to get my case expunged.
Heres the thing, would you be asking if it wasnt?? Its always better to have a clean recors if you can afford it.

The Philadelphia PD has a new provision stating that they will issue handwritten or electronic citations on the spot to offenders/defendants.
It is possible. Technology is ever changing, but mistakes happen too. What were you told?
