Penalties for a DUI Conviction

Driving under the influence (DUI) occurs when a person is in actual physical control of a motor vehicle and their mental faculties are impaired through the use of alcohol, drugs or any controlled substance. You will also be charged if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is above 0.08% and it is proven that you were driving. The penalties for conviction on a DUI offense can be severe and in some cases, life changing. You are going to want the services of an aggressive York criminal defense lawyer to effectively defend the charges against you.

Conviction for a DUI offense can result in:

  • Suspension/revocation of your driver's license
  • Fines
  • Time spent in jail
  • Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock system
  • Mandatory drug and alcohol assessment and treatment

The penalties can be enhanced if your DUI arrest involved other circumstances such as:

  • Traffic offenses
  • Theft crimes
  • Others

At Ilkhanoff and Silverstein, we have an in-depth understanding of the DUI laws and how to provide favorable outcomes for our clients.

Defense against DUI Charges in York & Lancaster, PA

We want you to know that there are many proven defenses against the charges in a DUI case. The reliability of machines used to test for BAC can, at times, be successfully challenged. Field sobriety tests can have many flaws, both in the tests themselves and how they are administered. Sometimes a police officer fails in his or her duty to properly inform a person of their rights under the law.

The police may have lacked probable cause to stop you in the first place which can result in an illegal arrest. Evidence from the scene of your arrest, police reports and witness statements may each prove to provide valuable information that can lead to favorable results in DUI cases.

We have more than 40 years of experience in a wide variety of legal settings that allows us to successfully resolve complex legal issues and trials. Our commitment is to provide you with high quality and effective legal representation during your time of need, whether you are located in York, Lancaster or a surrounding area.
