In the state of Pennsylvania, arrest on a repeat or felony DUI is a serious matter that almost always involves fines, the suspension of your driver’s license, and jail. Additionally, the look back penalty in Pennsylvania is 10 years. Consequently, even if your last DUI conviction was eight, nine, or ten years ago, if convicted again your conviction will be treated as a repeat or felony DUI. At the DUI defense Law Offices of John E. Kusturiss, Jr., we can often reduce the charges or sentence against you, depending on the circumstances of your arrest and your driving record.
