One of our Berks County clients was charged with a first-offense DUI and additionally with refusing to submit to chemical testing. This client had applied for the DUI ARD program and was facing the usual ARD sentence for a DUI with a refusal which included a 60-day license suspension. The client was charged prior to the US Supreme Court’s recent decision in Birchfield (read more about this important DUI case here** add link). Knowing that the Court’s decision was coming soon and that it could have a huge impact on her client’s case, Attorney Ebner delayed the disposition of this client’s case to wait for a ruling in Birchfield. Because of the new issues that have been raised by the Supreme Court’s Birchfield decision, this Berks County DUI client was given a reduced ARD sentence for general impairment (the lowest level DUI sentence) and NO license suspension.
