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.

How much will dui under controlled substance affect employment?
I was charged with a dui under controlled substance a few months back in PA. I do qualify for the ARD program but I have to wait a long time before it's expunged. My question is how will it look to an employer in the time being? Is it as bad as let's say simple possession or possession with intent to sell? For all an employer know it could have been an over the counter drug in my case. I feel like my charge is a little more spinnable than the others. In my case it will never be a conviction if I complete the program. 1) How much do you think it will affect me in the next year? 2) Should I disclose it and make some lie about it being a prescription drug?
Let me preface this answer by saying that I do not practice in PA, so I do not know of the program to which you are...

What are my chances of getting on to Ard program in PA?
I have a dui under controlled substance in pa. It's my first dui offense. My lawyer put the Ard application in but I am a nervous wreck waiting for the decision. They found thc in my system along with a 1.8 BAC. I was arrested for simple possession a while ago but I acted as a confidential informant and plead to a Summary Disorderly Conduct. I have no misdameanor or felony convictions on my record. I know one factor in order to qualify for Ard is you can't have a criminal record. 1) Can you clarify exactly what the prerequisite means for the ard program in terms of prior criminal record or prior dispisition? 2) How much do you think the dismissed possession charge (which was expunged) will affect me getting onto ard? 3) What percentage chance would you give me of getting on to ard?
