Hi! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'll be the attorney assisting you.
I practice in the metro Pgh area.
Because of your son's health issues - they will have to incarcerate him in a facility that would be able to provide for his illness.
The minimum for the conviction of a 3rd DUI is 10 days jail to two years.
Too, the judge could sentence
him to house arrest given his medical problems. This program allows the driver to remain home during the sentence and continue working. The driver is restricted to the home during the sentence.
But it's up to the judge in your case.
You asked - what are the chances a judge would be likely to give the medical condition special consideration?
Great - seriously very great. The judge does not want to burden the prison/jail system with a medical issue of this gravity.
IMO - the judge will sentence him to house arrest.
