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?

DUI's in 1994 & 2004 and plead guilty to both. Received ARD for for one and second one M1. I cant buy or possess a weapon in PA but Ive been serving in the Army Reserves since 2006 as a Military Police officer carrying weapons.
