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

Both counties offered 90 days house arrest as both dui are listed as 2nd offense, 3rd tier. I've signed the plea already, will they pull it upon discovery in a pre-sentence investigaton?

Will DUI controlled substance charge be a barrier to finding employment with Bachelors Degree?
I have a Bachelors Degree from Temple University. I think I have a good chance of getting ARD with no prior misdeameanor or felony convictions on my record. My concern is for the next year and a half how will the charge look to a potential employer. I'm a minority so my odds of getting a job in my field is lower without a criminal charge according to (http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2014/08/06/the-job-market-tightens-but-new-journalism-grads-remain-upbeat/) I know most jobs only ask for convictions but how much do you think the charge will be a barrier from me finding a job.

I have been charged with my 2ND and 3rd DWI in separate jurisdictions (counties) within two weeks. Can they combine the charges?
Two weeks apart I recieved DUI 2 and 3 in two counties. I had morphine metabolites, and alprazolam metabolites in my blood both times. One was an accident where a HIPPA subpoena was granted. Both have my charges as second dui, but a Pre-Sentence investigation was ordered so they may discover it's a 3rd.
If you're asking if the two charges could be merged into one so you only get one penalty then the answer is no. You...

I live in Pennsylvania and am currently in the ARD program for DUI. I received an underage drinking citation the other day.
Since I'm on ARD, I'm wondering what the legal repercussions of this offense might entail. Specifically, I was wondering if I could lose eligibility for ARD and if the DUI will no longer be expunged.
Getting arrested on new charges is a violation of ARD and will likely result in an attempt to have you removed from the...
