DUI Lawyer – First Offense

In a  DUI first offense in PA, (or any DUI offense)  the severity of penalties depends on how much alcohol was in your bloodstream – Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) – at the time you were pulled over and your prior criminal history. The higher the BAC, the more severe the anticipated penalties will be. A refusal of a chemical or breath test, will result in the highest penalties allowed under the law. You will also have an additional suspension imposed for the refusal.

Penalties for DUI First Offense

BAC .08 – .099%

BAC .10 – .159% and/or an accident or injury involved

BAC .16% or higher, refusal to take chemical test or drugs involved
