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.

Will my probation officer find out.
Friday night I had gone out drinking and ended up drinking too much and entirely more than intended. I had gone home and my roommate heard me having trouble breathing and called an ambulance. When the ambulance came the police had actually come with them as well and searched my room to see if any drugs were involved. The police asked my room mate if I was on probation and my room mate said yes. No new charges were filed and I was taken to the hospital over night for monitoring. I have not heard anything from my probation officer yet and it is Sunday evening. Will he find out about this?
Given your facts, it's really not likely. Drinking to the point where you need medical attention is a serious problem.....
