Multiple Charges Make it More Difficult

download (32)DUI charges don’t usually come on their own. Normally there is a crash or another moving violation that gets the attention of the police. The worse those other charges are, the harder it is to defend against the charge of DUI. It’s just how it is.

A recent example of this is when a jury convicted a man who killed a retired local businessman while driving. He was initially charged with DUI last year and was allegedly speeding as well. Four others were also injured in the crash. In total, the man was convicted on fourteen separate charges, including involuntary manslaughter and homicide by vehicle.

The defense tried to argue against the charges by positing the involvement of a third vehicle and arguing the speeds of the respective cars. In the end though, the jury chose to convict. Once it is in their hands it is all up to them. That’s how our legal system works.

Not every DUI case can be one, but a good defense attorney will do everything in their power to help. The worst thing you can do is try to go up against the court alone. Call the law office of Stephen Kellis if you have been charged with DUI in the state of Pennsylvania. You’ll have decades of experience on your side.
