Any arrest for driving under the influence (DUI) in Pennsylvania carries significant consequences. However, while courts can be more sympathetic to people facing drunk driving charges for the first time, punishments can be much more severe if a person is facing DUI charges for the third time in a 10-year period.
A conviction for a third or subsequent drunk driving arrest can have a devastating impact on a person’s current or future employment as well as his or her basic livelihood. In these types of cases, it can be extremely difficult to get a prosecutor to negotiate any sort of lesser sentence.
If you have been arrested for DUI and you had two or more previous convictions, you should contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Ciccarelli Law Offices represents clients facing DUI charges in such communities throughout Chester County, including Coatesville, Easttown, Phoenixville, West Caln, West Chester, and West Goshen.
