Are You A 2nd Time DUI Offender In PA?

Learn More About PA DUI Laws For 2nd Offense Convictions & Find Out What Might Be In Your Future

Have you been arrested for a DUI offense in Pennsylvania? If you are a 2nd time DUI offender in PA, it is important for you to understand the sentencing differences between a first time and a second time conviction. A second-time offender could lead to much more serious charges, so you need an experienced DUI attorney who will fight for your freedom.

While your PA DUI attorney will do everything possible to avoid a conviction, having a clear understanding of the sentencing possibilities will go a long way toward helping you decide how you want your lawyer to handle your case. All cases are different, and your lawyer will identify the best possible defense for your case to you.

If you have already been convicted of a DUI in PA, you are well aware of the three levels of impairment that are used with determining sentencing. If you are convicted of a General Impairment DUI, PA DUI laws for 2nd offense convictions call for all of the following sentencing possibilities:

If you are convicted of a High Rate DUI, on the other hand, your sentencing may include the following:

As a 2nd time DUI offender convicted of a Highest Rate DUI, the following sentencing guidelines will be in place:

It should also be noted that PA DUI laws for a 2nd offense within the Highest Rate DUI category calls for a conviction to be a first degree misdemeanor. Therefore, being convicted of a Highest Rate DUI for the second time has some very serious implications.

Whether you have been charged with a General Impairment DUI or a Highest Rate DUI, hiring a well-qualified and experienced attorney to handle your case is essential. After all, if you are convicted of a DUI, you will certainly be facing jail time as well as a license suspension. Both of these consequences could have a significant impact on your personal life as well as your job.
