The sentencing for a DUI conviction depends on a few different factors:

The state of Pennsylvania separates BAC test results into three categories:

If this is your first DUI and your BAC level was in the first category, you face a fine up to $300, possible jail time and a probation period of six months. Your driver’s license will not be suspended in this case, however if your BAC level was in the second or third category, it will definitely be suspended. Clients should know and understand that in the state of Pennsylvania, it is a separate offense to refuse a BAC test. If you refuse a BAC test, it will be considered an admittance of guilt. First and second-time offenders are also sentenced to complete education classes at a certified DUI school.

It is very important to also contact the DMV following your arrest. You have 30 calendar days following your arrest to request a hearing with the DMV; or else your license may be automatically suspended. Clients should note that the DMV is its own independent entity; while a judge may not order your license suspended, the DMV can and will. A good attorney can help stop this action.
