Driving under the Influence (DUI) is considered a serious crime in Pennsylvania. In 2004 the Pennsylvania General Assembly passed a new DUI law under Title 75 § 3802. This law increased the penalties in many cases for DUI. A conviction can lead to a mandatory jail sentence, driver’s license loss, and mandatory fines. The consequences of a conviction can also reach beyond the criminal sanctions and cause serious problems for employment.
For repeat offenders, the risks are even higher. The mandatory prison sentences that the prosecution can seek can include one year incarceration in a state prison and years spent on parole.
