Today I represented a client charged with violating section 1543(b) of the PA Vehicle Code – Driving Under a Suspended License – DUI Related. The sentence is strict for a conviction for such an offense: 60 days mandatory in jail, and the possibility of up to 90 days at the discretion of the Judge. Additionally, a Driving Under Suspended License (DUS) citation carries a 1 year License Suspension from PENNDOT.
In this particular case I was able to negotiate a reduction in the charge down to the lesser offense of a 1543(a) – non-DUI related. This allowed my client to avoid at least 60 days in Berks County Prison.
