Most criminal lawyers and general practitioners will handle at least one of the more than 37,500 DUI cases appearing in Pennsylvania's courts each year. Since 2003, when the BAC levels were dropped and stricter penalties were imposed, these cases have taken on greater importance, especially for the offender, who is faced with a series of complex, embarrassing, and potentially devastating consequences if convicted. This book is your guide to what happens from last call at the local pub to appearance before a judge at district court. Learn what you need to know about the laws, procedures, and methods necessary to help you prioritize the key elements of your case.
