    No Jail Time For Man With Fifth DUI

    Aug 21 2015 in Case Results, DUI

    A 35-year-old Allegheny County man was faced with mandatory jail time when he received his fifth lifetime DUI. The man contacted attorney Samir Sarna with Worgul, Sarna & Ness, Criminal Defense Attorneys, LLC, and he pleaded guilty in February 2014. We asked for a pre-sentence investigation and after the guilty plea, we asked the court to modify his bond with electronic home monitoring. The 90-day sentence right was waived and we continually postponed sentencing. In February 2015, we went for the sentencing and convinced the judge to give him time served for every day he was on electronic monitoring. He was sentenced to 18 months of electronic home monitoring and 18 months of probation. Our negotiated outcome resulted in zero jail time even though he was originally faced with one to two years in jail.
