Everyone has the right to a fair trial, no exceptions. It doesn’t matter if it’s the first arrest or the fifth — the defendant has the right to speak, as well as the presumption of innocence. Sometimes, this can be forgotten, however, in the prosecution’s zeal to prove his or her case. It takes an aggressive and engaged defense to make sure the defendant’s rights are observed at all times.
Police say a resident of Downingtown has been charged with DUI for the third time in as many months in West Whiteland Township.
The 42-year-old man was arrested and charged with a DUI after an accident near the intersection of Route 100 and Route 30, according to police. Officers received a call concerning an erratic driver and claim they saw the suspect’s vehicle run into a traffic signal box and two other vehicles.
He had been charged less than two weeks before for DUI after being found asleep in his vehicle, according to police. The previous month before that, he was arrested on North Pottstown Pike at a DUI checkpoint.
The suspect posted 10 percent of $5,000 post, and was arraigned and released.
