Q: I need help with my dui case in Bedford pa who can help me
I have 2 prior dui convictions in Florida that are over 15 years old and I just recently got another dui in Bedford pa. What kind of punishment am I looking at?
A: Per the facts you put forth you are a first offense DUI (there is a 10 year lookback period). However, this is your third offense lifetime. Some District Attorneys will want to add time because of this. You are looking at a likely mandatory sentence of up to 72 hours, with a $1000 fine in addition to court costs, and a one year license suspension. There are many excellent DUI attorneys in your neck of the woods. If you cant find one using the search portal you can contact the local bar association for a recommendation. Bedford county is very specific so someone local will best be able to support your needs.
