Q: My husband got charged with his 3rd DUI in Pennsylvania.
The 1st, Dec. 7, 2003 ( BAC=.245, fined and accepted into ARD)
The 2nd, Sept. 9, 2006 (BAC= .275, 4 months in jail, fined, ignition interlock)
The 3rd, Jan 31, 2016 ( waiting for results)
Also, these dates were the arrest date, not sentencing dates. We live in Allegheny County but this happened near our cabin at Tionesta, PA. (West Mifflin, PA)
A: It appears to be a second DUI. Depending on his blood alcohol level the statute calls for a minimum 30 days in jail and a $750 to $5000 fine. It also carries a one year driver’s license suspension. Forest County may offer an alternative to jail such as house arrest, electronic home monitoring or work release, as Allegheny County does. However, this I would need to confirm this.
