DUI cases are concerning for many clients because there is often mandatory jail time associated with a conviction, as well as a lengthy license suspension. One such client was recently represented by Attorney McAllister in the Berks County Court of Common Pleas. Our client was facing the prospect of spending a mandatory 3 days in jail and a 12 month license suspension, not to mention a misdemeanor conviction on his record. Understandably, our client was very concerned about these possible consequences.
After much discussion with Attorney McAllister, our client made the decision to take his case to trial before a Judge, which is also known as a bench trial. Attorney McAllister was able to skillfully cross-examine the witnesses for the prosecution. After hearing Attorney McAllister’s closing arguments, the Judge ruled in favor of our client and found him “not guilty” of the DUI charges that he was facing. Therefore, our client was able to avoid spending any time in Berks County Prison, and he did not lose his license as a result of the DUI either. Our client was very happy with the outcome of the case and very satisfied with the services of Attorney McAllister.
