Man From Irvin Has Driving Under DUI Suspension Charge Reduced
In Pittsburg and its surrounding areas, most people would probably consider driving to be a necessity. Whether driving is part of your job or you are trying to get around town, serious problems can arise if you drive while your driver license is suspended, and even more so, if that suspension is the result of a DUI as a 35-year-old man from Irvin recently learned. The man, who works as a mason was pulled over on his way home from work, but officers quickly discovered his license was under suspension for a DUI and was consequently charged. Faced with the stark reality that this offense could result in between 60 and 90 days in jail, very steep fines, and an additional year without driving privileges, the man began looking for Pittsburg DUI attorneys with experience handling driving under DUI suspension cases and found Worgul, Sarna & Ness, Criminal Defense Attorneys, LLC.
Attorney Matthew Ness used his wide-ranging knowledge of the laws relating to DUI suspensions and the Pennsylvania traffic code to advise his client on how to proceed. After learning that the man’s license would soon become eligible for reinstatement, he was strategically able to restore the man’s license before he needed to appear in court. When the presiding judge and prosecution were made aware of the man’s now valid driver license, attorney Ness arranged to have the driving under DUI suspension charge amended to driving without a valid license. As a result of this reduction, the man would need to pay a nominal $25 fine, but there would be no jail time or additional suspension. Most importantly, the man was free to leave the courthouse as a driver with no restrictions.
