Accompanying a fourth conviction of driving under the influence in Pennsylvania is a minimum of one (1) year in jail. Each DUI conviction in PA also results in a year suspension of your PA driver's license (an additional year if you refuse the blood test) in addition to fines and court costs.
Thank you very much for your help. I am wondering if it is possible to get probation instead of doing jail time. Can you tell me how parole works? If I get a year sentence, when might I be eligible for parole? What kind of a plea bargain might be offered if the prosecutor feels it may be a difficult conviction. Are there provisions in jail for necessary psychiatric medications?
