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...

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 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.
With no disrespect intended, I think you are asking the wrong people about the future employment ramifications of your...
How long will it take me to get a CRN evaluation?
I have a dui and qualify for ARD. I need to have my CRN evaluation by May 10th. I was going to call first thing Monday morning (April 27th) and schedule it for May 8th. Do you think almost 2 weeks is enough time to fit me in. I believe its only 20 minutes worth of questions so I would like to be believe that I can be squeezed in. I sent an email today stating who I was and when I wanted to schedule and I also left a voice mail because theyre closed on weekends so they will receive it first thing Monday. I am still going to call Monday and schedule it verbally but I just paranoid that theyre going to be so booked that they cant squeeze me in by May 8th. The lady who I spoke to runs the evaluation said that it doesn't take that long. Do you think I can be squeezed in by May 8th
It's possible, just remember there are several facilities all over Pennsylvania that perform this evaluation try...
