Harsher DUI penalties might be coming

The term "drunk driver" conjures up a very strong stereotype for most people in Pennsylvania and that stereotype is anything but a positive one. The fact of the matter is that many highly respected, professional and responsible people can be or are arrested for driving under the influence every year. Driving a vehicle after having a drink or two is so common in today's society that to paint a negative picture in one's mind about DUI defendants is simply wrong.

How do different BAC levels affect your behavior?

In Pennsylvania, blowing .08 on a breath analysis test is considered to be above the legal limit, and you will face arrest. But did you know that your blood alcohol content level (BAC) doesn't necessarily need to be that high before you start having severe cognitive problems while driving?

What if this isn't my first DUI offense?

In Pennsylvania, DUI-related charges can earn you some very hefty penalties if you end up being convicted. These penalties only increase if it isn't your first DUI. Marinaro Law Firm is here to help by providing you with facts and information that can be used to handle your recent DUI charge.

Did the police officer have a good reason to pull you over?

Imagine driving through Lancaster on a Friday night. After spending a few hours with your friends at your favorite bar, you decide to head home for the night. Halfway to your house, a police officer pulls you over. The next thing you know, you are in the back of a squad car and heading to jail.

Court says DUI blood test results not admissable

Pennsylvania drivers who are ever stopped by a police officer and questioned for suspected drunk driving should know that the law provides specific rights to them in this process. Regardless of whether or not a person is guilty of some action that breaks a law, they have the right to be treated fairly and members of law enforcement are required to follow certain protocol. When this does not happen, there may be ramifications that change the direction of a criminal case.

What are the penalties for a DUI conviction?

If you are convicted of driving under the influence in Pennsylvania, you could face serious consequences, even if this is your first DUI offense. Per the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, the level of your blood alcohol content plus any prior DUI convictions you have are taken into account when determining your penalties.
