DUI Charges in Warminster

Pennsylvania takes drunk driving seriously. Police are on the lookout for drivers who are swerving, weaving between lanes, driving well under the speed limit or coming close to other objects. If they pull you over and you show signs of impairment like slurred speech or glossy eyes, you’ll likely be asked to perform a field sobriety test and a chemical test. If you refuse, your license could be suspended for at least a year.

Your blood alcohol content (BAC) will impact the classification of your DUI charge, as well as the severity of the penalties you face. These will also increase depending on how many DUIs you’ve been convicted of over the last 10 years.

  • If your BAC was between .08-.099: The first offense is penalized by up to six months probation and a $300 fine, and the fourth offense is worth up to six months in jail and a fine up to $5,000.
  • If your BAC was between .10-.159: The first offense is punishable by up to six months in jail and up to $5,000 in fines. The fourth offense could be five years in jail and $10,000 in fines.
  • If your BAC was .16 or higher: The first offense is punishable by up to six months in jail and up to $5,000 in fines. The fourth offense could be five years in jail and $10,000 in fines.
  • Domestic Violence in Warminster

    When you’ve been charged with domestic violence or another criminal activity, you can feel isolated, hopeless and lost. By their nature, these charges separate you from the people you are closest to. Stigma might also separate you from your friends, and if the charge ends up on your record, future employers might hesitate before giving you a job.

    If you’re charged with domestic violence, you could be sentenced to prison, separated from your children and have a protection from abuse (PFA) order placed on you for three years. Even if the victim asks them to drop the case, the courts will usually pursue a conviction anyway.

    Juvenile Crime in Warminster
