Alcohol & Drugs

 

In Pennsylvania, driving under the influence of drugs carries the highest DUI penalties. if you are found driving with any measurable amount in your system of a Schedule I controlled substance or any Schedule II or III substance for which you don't have prescription – you will be prosecuted as if you were at the highest level of alcohol intoxication. This even applies if you are found with a metabolite (from usage perhaps days earlier) of one of these substances in your system. As with alcohol-related convictions, the penalties increase as you accumulate offenses.

The penalties for conviction of Driving under the Influence of drugs are as follows:

First Offense

This is an ungraded misdemeanor with a mandatory 72 hour imprisonment up to a possible 6 months and a $1,000.00 to $5,000.00 fine. Required CRN, AHSS and mandatory full D&A. The license suspension is for 12 months. You also have the possibility for OLL after serving a hard 2 month suspension.

Second Offense

This is graded as a misdemeanor of the First Degree with a mandatory 90 days imprisonment 5 year maximum jail sentence and a $ 1,500.00 to $10,000.00 fine. The license suspension is for 12 months. Required CRN, AHSS, D&A and Ignition Interlock for 12 months.

Third Offense

This is graded as a misdemeanor of the First Degree with a mandatory 1 year imprisonment 5 year maximum jail sentence and a $ 2,500.00 to $10,000.00 fine. The license suspension is for 18 months. Required CRN, D&A and Ignition Interlock for 12 months.

Fourth Offense

This is graded as a misdemeanor of the First Degree with a mandatory 1 year imprisonment 5 year maximum jail sentence and a $ 2,500.00 to $10,000.00 fine. The license suspension is for 18 months. Required CRN, D&A and Ignition Interlock for 12 months.

Collateral Effects

Collateral Effects

In addition to the fines, license suspensions, and potential jail time associated with a DUI conviction – there are a number of other collateral effects that you need to consider as well. For some individuals, these can be even more sever than the direct penalties for DUI. If you are in a DUI-related accident, you may need to make financial restitution. If you have a Commercial Driver's License (or had planned to apply for one in the future), the penalties are more severe and may even result in a lifetime CDL suspension, forcing you to completely change careers.

Some individuals (particularly repeat offenders) may have to install an ignition interlock on their vehicle to test their BAC before they can start their vehicle. This is an expensive device to install and a potentially embarrassing one to have to explain to family, coworkers, and friends. On top of any fines, restitution, or ignition interlock installation expenses, your insurance rates may go up dramatically or you may even be dropped by your insurance carrier. A final thing to consider is the impact of a DUI conviction on your reputation in the community and potential job prospects in the future. More and more companies conduct background checks on their employees as part of the hiring process, and a DUI conviction could follow you for years.

For all of these reasons, hiring an attorney with significant expertise and experience in the DUI field is critical to your future happiness and success. You need someone like Jeremy Mittman in your corner.

Prescription Drugs

Prescription Drugs

If you are found driving with any measurable amount of an unprescribed prescription drug in your system – you will be prosecuted under Pennsylvania law as if you were at the highest level of alcohol intoxication. And, these penalties are severe. Learn more about Alcohol and Drugs.

If you have a prescription for the medication, you can still be found guilty of Driving Under the Influence of Drugs (DUID) if you are significantly impaired in the opinion of the arresting officer. Of course, this kind of "diagnosis" is very subjective and relies upon the officer's opinion of your behavior and perhaps your performance on a field sobriety test. Some police departments also use Drug Recognition Experts (DREs) to check your pulse rate, pupil size, or blood pressure to "scientifically" determine whether you are under the influence of drugs.

Since even the simple stress of a potential arrest can quicken your pulse rate, cause your pupils to dilate, or raise your blood pressure – these measures are less than exact. Coupled with the fact that chemical drug tests can come back positive for drugs that were taken days or even weeks earlier – you could conceivably find yourself facing a DUID charge for a legally prescribed drug that you had not even taken that day.

That's why you need experienced DUI representation when you are charged with driving under the influence of prescription drugs. We have the expertise to poke holes in the prosecution's supposedly "expert" testimony and give you the zealous defense you deserve. The stakes are too high for you to go it alone.

 When it was time for me to obtain legal counsel, I received tons of letters from various DUI attorneys in Pennsylvania throughout my surrounding area. I decided to make calls to everyone who sent a letter in order to try and make a decision about my representation. At times I reached someone right away and other times I went back and forth with someone for some time.Jeremy Mittman & Associates stood out amongst everyone becasue they actively pursued me and showed a genuine interest in my DUI case. He listened to my story and my thoughts and concerns. When I told him that I didn't have certain expectations of my representation, he stated back, "Well you should expect that from any PA DUI attorney!" I was very impressed and felt very confident he would do his best to work for my best outcome. And that is exactly what he did.Jeremy Mittman was completely responsive to my needs - ensuring that my questions were answered and phone calls and emails addressed. The experience of working with Jeremy Mittman & Associates was overall satisfying and exactly what I came to expect!

J.S.

After receiving my DUI here in Pennsylvania I researched on the internet for a PA DUI attorney. I choose Jeremy Mittman for my DUI attorney because he stated that the most important part of any PA DUI case is the preliminary hearing. What complicated my case further was the officer on scene accused me of causing an accident. So I was at risk of being charged with a DUI and causing an accident. Jeremy Mittman's expertise and knowledge of Pennsylvania DUI cases combined with his masterful courtroom presentation resulted in the judge dropping all the charges against me!  I would highly recommend Jeremy Mittman and Associates to anyone for their PA DUI case!

Thank you again!

I wanted to write and personally thank Jeremy Mittman and Associates for their brilliant defense strategy which led to the successful resolution of my case. As you know when I walked in your office looking for a PA DUI attorney I was a broken man, with no hope and very little to still look forward to in life. Not only did Jeremy Mittman give me very valuable personal advice that helped me tremendously, he also guided me through every step of my defense strategy. Jeremy Mittman helped me to regain my focus during this very difficult time in my life and reminded me what is the most important thing in life which is my family. The creativity and resourcefulness I witnessed during the development of my defense strategy through successful outcome of my case always encouraged me. You seemed to know what moves to me every step along the way from start to finish. Most important to me was the fact that during this process, little by little, you brought me hope and helped me be able to continue to working and keep my job. I will never forget what you did for me and my family. This case was not just about a brilliant defense it was also about keeping a positive attitude during a very stressful time. You somehow help me manage to keep it all together with so much riding on the line for me. My family and I thank you so much.  If anyone is looking for a Pennsylvania DUI attorney I would definitely recommend Jeremy Mittman!
