Fight Against DUI Charges
Pennsylvania’s drunk driving laws dole out harsh punishments to drivers who are convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol. If you are facing drunk driving charges, it’s important to understand what options you have available.
In Pennsylvania, there are three DUI levels which correspond to a driver’s blood alcohol level. The penalties associated with each level vary considerably and are also impacted by whether a driver is a first-time or subsequent offender.
A Conviction Can Lead To Harsh Consequences
The following are among the penalties that an individual who is convicted of a DUI may face:
- A misdemeanor conviction and formal criminal record
- Payment of fines in the amount up to $10,000
- Suspension or revocation of a driver’s license
- Ordered to use an ignition interlock device
- Forced to attend mandatory alcohol education classes
As is true with any criminal matter, in DUI cases, details matter. What was your blood alcohol content level? Is this your first DUI? Were you taking any prescription or over-the-counter medications at the time of your arrest? Did a police officer have a good reason to stop and pull you over?
