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. These articles mention the use of plea agreements to reduce the workload.
DUIs are treated seriously here in Philadelphia, as in any county in PA. With the exception of first offense, very low...

My husband served 2 yrs for dui 2005-2007. He's now serving 30 days in jail for dui . Is there a statue of limitations on dui
He had too much to drink after 8 years of sobriety. He didn't feel as though he'd had too much to drink after not drinking for so long. Will he now be penalized for his past mistakes, he learned a lesson after serving 2 yrs of his life. He's 51 yrs old and believe me he's learned his lesson.
Whats confusing from your question is whether he in jail on a new DUI. Statute of limitations apply to new charges...
Dui conviction vs Dui (Ard Disposition)
I have a dui controlled substance charge. I likely qualify for ard because I have no prior misdeameanor or felony convictions. While on ard, I have to wait a year to get it expunged from my record. I have a bachelor's degree and I am driving myself crazy thinking how this charge mat affect me finding a decent job for the time being. I know ultimately every employer is different but I feel it would be more acceptable if it was a simple alcohol dui but no legit company wants a druggie even if it's not a conviction but a ard disposition. Am I thinking too much into this a shot just apply for jobs because at the end of the day it's not a conviction (and never will be) and jobs only care about convictions? Or is this something I should genuinely be concern ed about? Or is this
Employers care more about JUST a conviction, they care about a course of conduct. Thus, even it's imperative you do...
Will an arrest show up on a background check?
I was arrested for driving with a suspended license in MD. The reason my license was suspended I found, was for non payment of a speeding ticket in Delaware a couple years before. I did in fact pay the ticket on time. My home state (PA) and Delaware never communicated to each other that it was paid. I never received notice of license suspension so 2 years later was stopped for expired registration in MD and arrested for having the suspended license. A lawyer gathered the necessary information and wrote a letter to the court. Everything was dropped without having to go to court. I want to know if the arrest will show up on a background check and if so what state to talk to to get it removed. Thanks for any advice
It matters first of all what kind of background check you are referring to. There are many types and each has...
