Defense Of Multiple Or Repeat DUIs
With each additional DUI you are charged with, the sentencing and consequences become much more severe.

If Arrested For DUI Multiple Times, You Face Much More Serious Penalties
If anyone was injured because of your drunk driving, the jail time and sentences become even more serious. The court will also look at the level of intoxication, Breathalyzer tests and blood test results at the time of the arrest. With even the lowest possible blood alcohol content, you would still face mandatory jail time ranging from five days to six months as well as fines up to $2,500. If this is a third or more offense, or if your BAC was higher, the mandatory sentences are even more severe.
It is critical that you have an experienced lawyer on your side.
In the state of Pennsylvania, some second- or third-time DUI offenders may have the option of a DUI treatment program. You may still be required to serve a period of a mandatory jail sentence, but the rest of the jail time can be worked off by attending treatment programs. This is intended to help rehabilitate repeat offenders and avoid future DUIs.
