A DUI conviction can stay with a person for the rest of his or her life, let alone having multiple DUI convictions. The fact remains; however, that no matter how many times one has been troubled by DUI charges, that individual deserves a fair trial. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty, which means every case has the benefit of the doubt. DUI penalties can be very stiff in most states, Pennsylvania included, not even counting the severe damage to the defendant’s reputation and livelihood.
A 47-year-old Delaware man has been picked up by police after sideswiping a police carearly one Sunday morning. The police car was parked by the side of the road when it was hit, and the driver was quickly taken in and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and careless driving. This made it his fourth offense for driving under the influence, after three previous convictions.
Such a case might make it seem impossible that this driver in Delaware could get a fair trial, but there is hope for Pennsylvania residents in similar situations. Steven E.
