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...

Your remaining probation requirements likely did not just go away. Your case has fallen through the cracks (apparently)...
n 2012 I got a DUI in Philadelphia. I was entered into the ARD program and completed all the requirements within the specified timeline. I am in a union through my job and they covered the lawyer fees. When I initially met with the lawyer he told me that after this was complete to contact him regarding the expungment and that I would be financially responsible, etc. I didn't initiate the expungment right away because I didn't have the money and it wasn't something that was going to affect my job either way. Last week I called the firm that had worked with me on my DUI and went down and spoke to the lawyer about getting the expungment process started since I am applying for nursing school. He typed my name and even the docket number of my case in the courts system and nothing came up...there is no record of me ever being arrested. He said it must've been expunged and that the union must've covered it and did it automatically. Is this possible? I know people say to never look a gift horse in the mouth but I'm just wary because this wasn't anything I initiated or spoke to anyone about other than briefly going over the process with a lawyer 3 years ago when I got the DUI. Does this sound plausible? I just don't want any surprises when I start school and I am unsure whether or not I should disclose it.
I recommend you talk with an experienced attorney for legal advice and guidance.
My girlfriend was at a college party that got busted. She didn't drink but had a cup of beer in her hand at the time. She was scared and did not opt for the blood alcohol test (I was in a similar circumstance but did take the test and passed) so she got a citation for underage drinking. She was told if she took the educational course her record would be clean and that would be the end. Originally from New York, she has since gotten a PA License in addition to registering her car in PA with absolutely no problem. We just moved to NJ. She went to the DMV and they say there is a hold on a suspension for her PA license from nearly 6 years ago. Again, she was told she would be fine after the course and it never came up in getting a PA license or car registration.
Yes you need to hire a criminal defense lawyer in Philadelphia who can look up the file and send a letter to Penndot to...
I received a 2 year suspended sentence, probation, a $900.00 fine and take an "alcohol awareness class". I did the probation, and took the course, then left for another state. Got married, had kids, active in my church, bought a house..etc..Then in 2012 I received a letter from my local D.M.V saying my drivers license has been suspended.(due to the violation in 1984) Kinda like the biblical "LOT" one disaster befell be after another. After losing just about everything, and trying to correct the situation with the morons in Marlborough, I came across this web site. I paid the outstanding $900.00 fine, and signed up for another awareness course. Will this get my license back? And after almost 30 years I think a it's a good idea to maybe "clear the books" on old misdemeanors. and go after..
PA will only lift the suspension if your previous state says your complete. I would reach out to a drivers license...
