DUI with a child passenger can bring serious charges

Drunk driving charges carry serious penalties in Pennsylvania, including license revocation, fines and potential jail time. These penalties can be enhanced under a number of circumstances. One situation that will result in a significantly stiffer sentence is having a minor under the age of 18 as a passenger when the violation occurs.

Woman faces multiple offenses linked to Pennsylvania DUI

When there are drunk driving charges alleged against a person in Pennsylvania, it will not necessarily be a simple matter of being stopped by law enforcement and facing an arrest for driving under the influence. Often with a drunk driving arrest, there will be other infractions as part of the process that can lead to multiple offenses and the increased harshness of the penalties if there is a conviction. Whether it is a single charge or multiple charges going beyond those confined to a DUI, one of the most important factors in any case is to have legal assistance for negotiation of a possible plea and to formulate a defense if the case goes to trial.

Drunk driving has long-term consequences

New Year's Eve parties throughout the country meant good times for many Americans, including here in Pennsylvania. Whether you went out to a friend's house, attended a concert or spent the night at a bar or nightclub, it isn't uncommon for people to bring in the new year celebrating with alcoholic beverages. And, when it comes to a night of drinking, it is also not uncommon for people to lose track of their sobriety and get behind the wheel of a vehicle.

Changes in Pennsylvania DUI laws

Driving is not a right; it's a privilege. You remember studying for your driving test, logging hours behind the wheel, practicing parallel parking and sitting for hours while a driving instructor talked about the rules of the road. The state of Pennsylvania required you to do this if you wanted to drive.
