I was arrested for a DUI in December last year in the state

Hi, I was arrested for a DUI in December last year in the state of Pennsylvannia. My case led to a diversion program where I would not get convicted as it is my first offense. I am currently in that program. My concern is that the local police department put up my arrest record including mugshot on the internet and it shows up when I search my name and state. Is there a way to have them take down that page? Prior to my case's expungement? Could I make a friendly request? What are my legal options about this

I have a quick question. I work for a large corporation in

Hi there. I have a quick question. I work for a large corporation in CA. While working here I have seen team members get arrested for different things, typically DUIs and the company has retained the team members. Another employee was recently arrested and the company forced place the employee on leave and then terminated the team member. the team member just reached out to me asking me if this was fair. My question is that, how can an employer justify keeping an employee who has been arrested yet fire another one? The employee who was terminated is n good standing with the company and does not have any prior arrests.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: Of course. this is in the state of CA. the team member just called me now. He was just terminated. he was arrested I believe 2 weeks ago but made bail the same day and was back at work the next day. two days later the company put him out on leave. He advised the company to get everything cleared up may take a few months, but the company decided to put him on a forced leave for now.and is out on bail pending a hearing for the charges that were brought against him.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I know he is working with a lawyer for his arrest case, but he just reached out to me right now regarding the termination so I don't know if he has reached out to anyone in regards ***** ***** yet. I recommended that he reach out to a lawyer regarding this because I don't know how this can be legal for a company keep all those other team members who have been arrested yet fire him. especially since some of the prior team members had multiple arrests. I told him I would do some looking around for him and get back to him.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No I think that is everything. thank you so much

A woman, whom my husband and his friend met at a party,

A woman, whom my husband and his friend met at a party, submitted a victim report against the friend. The friend got a call from police a week ago to make an appointment for investigation. He went to police, and was arrested after an investigation, and then took to the court and charged. The friend told my husband, based on what he heard from the detective, that another woman, whom my husband met at the party, submitted a victim report against my husband, alleging forcible touching. My husband had not got a call from police as of last Thursday, and he has been abroad from last Thursday for his work. He had turned off his cell phone from Thursday to Wednesday, so he is not sure he got a call from police during that period. Other than that period, he is sure that has not got a call from police. My husband is not US citizen. He is staying in NY with VISA. He does not have any criminal records. He is over 20 years old. My husband does not need to be back to the US, but he strongly wants to be back.1. How likely will my husband be arrested at the airport when he comes back to the US in one or a few weeks? (Especially in the case where police has called my husband after last Thursday, but my husband did not notice it because he is abroad)2. (In a case he enters the US safely), after he comes back to NY, if police call my husband, is it possible for my husband to go abroad before going to police office?3. If my husband call the detective and ask whether they have a plan to call my husband, and the detective answers they have no plan to do so, is this detective's statement reliable?

Confirmed with the court, my case has been dismissed but on file, as it is said they will have 1 year to look for more evidences to get back to me, the whole thing is an misunderstanding and there will definitely no evidences at all. My BF wanna get me back together after the EPO expired. So this is different with what my previous attorney said, I only got a record with under arrest, now on-file record as well? What is the difference? And how I could get rid of all the records for this whole ridiculous incident...
