ENM Law News: Reduced Penalty for Speeding Ticket in Berks County

A client was ticketed for driving 82 mph in a 55 mph zone. Our attorneys were able to convince the police officer to change the violation to 5 mph over the speed limit. This amended violation resulted in a reduced fine and drastically reduced the number of license points that the client received. This was a crucial change because the accrual of 6 license points results in sanctions for the license holder. You don't have to automatically plead guilty when you receive a traffic ticket in the mail. Instead, contact us to see if we can help. Call (610) 372-5128.

Spotlight Issue: Mandatory DUI Sentences

So you've been charged with a DUI in Berks County and you aren't eligible for the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program (see our prior posting about the DUI ARD program in Berks County). Now what? Our attorneys will meet with you to evaluate the best course of action for your case. Our attorneys will also be able to advise you on the length of sentence that you may be facing. DUI's carry mandatory minimum sentences. These mandatory minimum sentences are usually based on how many prior DUI's you have been convicted of in the past ten years and what your blood alcohol content (BAC) was at the time that you were driving. However, this isn't always the case. Other factors affecting your sentence include, but are not limited to, whether you had drugs in your system when your blood was drawn, whether there were children in the car at the time you were stopped by the police and whether you were involved in a motor vehicle accident. Below are the mandatory minimum sentences for each DUI tier.
