Your DUI Charge
Why did it have to happen to you? Maybe you had an accident or drove erratically, or maybe you were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
DUI laws and testing procedures have become very stringent, with general impairment starting at only 0.8% blood alcohol level. Depending on your weight, when you ate last, the alcohol proof of the beverage, and when you had that last drink, you could go from a couple of friendly drinks (even beers) to a DUI charge in the blink of an eye.
Without public transportation and taxi service, the opportunity to get in trouble multiplies.
Now it’s happened to you. Or perhaps you’re on this site because you have a teenager or a family member who has run into trouble. In either case, you need to call toll free 1-866-367-3847 today.
DUI – a Criminal Charge
The first thing to know is this – DUI is a criminal charge dealt with through the Pennsylvania court system. Whether you feel you’ve made an innocent mistake or been the victim of bad luck, it doesn’t matter.
- You could lose your driver’s license, even your CDL (Commercial Driver’s License)
- You’ll face fines from $300 to $10,000 (depending on number of offenses and BAC)
- You could be ordered to seek drug and alcohol treatment and attend mandatory alcohol highway safety school
- You could face jail time
We’re not saying these things to scare you, but to provide a reality check. Your DUI charge is not an inconvenience or a burden in your otherwise busy day. This is an event with serious legal consequences and repercussions to your personal life, your job, even your future.
