The local police in Erie were on a surprise DUI crackdown recently. The exercise was called Operation Nighthawk, and involved both Pennsylvania State Police and local Erie police. Their efforts netted over 50 DUI arrests in Erie County within two days. That’s quite a few people who have a lot of new questions. The Travis Law Firm is here to help you get the answers to your questions after being arrested or charged with a DUI.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A DUI?
After a DUI arrest, you will have to appear in court several times. There are also time limits for you to appear. If you fail to appear, a warrant will be issued for your arrest and you will probably do jail time if you are ever stopped by a traffic officer. Know what your responsibilities are and how to mount a solid defense by reading over these items.

AM I GOING TO JAIL?
If you are convicted of a DUI in Pennsylvania, you could go to jail. DUI has become a rising concern among lawmakers, and Pennsylvania is one of many states that has adopted much stricter DUI laws. As of now, PA DUI Law has a range of penalties and sentences for a DUI conviction. Many of the clients we talk to are surprised to find out that Pennsylvania DUI statutes (laws) dictate mandatory jail time, even for a first time offender. For your reference, this verbiage is contained at 75 P.S. § 3802.

WILL MY DRIVER’S LICENSE BE SUSPENDED?
A driver’s license suspension is certainly a possibility if you are convicted of DUI in Pennsylvania. PA statutes (state laws) dictate that a DUI conviction may lead to a 12-to-18 month suspension of driving privileges. That said, we may be able to help you keep your driver’s license in certain cases.
