Information on recent convictions and sentences can be a good source of knowledge for PA DUI lawyers. By looking at a particular court's sentencing, a PA DUI attorney can get an idea of what to expect in his or her client's case.
Here are some recent sentences handed down in Bradford County, PA:
- 6 months probation and a $300 fine in an August 2009 DUI incident in Wyalusing Township. The probation here is essentially a police-department monitored supervision.
- 48 hours to six months prison term and a $500 fine in a July 2008 offense in Smithfield Township. The driver will lose Pennsylvania driving privileges for 12 months and is also forced to make restitution to the victims. Restitution essentially means that the driver will have to "make the victims whole" or pay back the victims for their damages.
