Pittsburgh Felony DUI Lawyer
December 23, 2018, Pennsylvania will be the latest state to treat
DUI conviction as a
felony for a third conviction. No longer will
multiple DUI's be treated as a misdemeanor only subject to house arrest,
DUI hotel or probation.
Under the new
DUI Law, felony charges can be filed if you are arrested for your
Third DUI offense and your blood alcohol content is .16 or higher or if the arrest is your fourth or higher.
- The minimum fine for two DUI convictions is now $1,000 with a minimum
sentence of at least 90 days
- A third conviction or more will cost an offender $2,500 and six months in jail.
The new law also increases the minimum sentence for past DUI offenders
who commit intoxicated vehicular homicide. The penalty with one prior
DUI is now five years, while the minimum for an offender with two DUI
convictions increases to seven years. First Time DUI's are still eligible for the
ARD program and
Underage DUI's are treated the same.
Increased DUI Penalties Require Aggressive Defense
Just because the penalties increased doesn't mean your rights disappear.
You need aggressive Criminal Defense for DUI charges. A DUI charge can
be dismissed, withdraw, reduced or subject to a Not Guilty Verdict based
on the evidence or lack of evidence in your case. With a Felony Conviction
and possible prison time as a possible consequence, you need an experienced
Criminal Defense and DUI Attorney to review the following evidence:
- Criminal Complaint
- Dash Cam Footage
- Body Cam Footage of Field Sobriety Tests
- Certified Driving Record from PennDOT
