New grading and sentencing enhancements in Pennsylvania went into effect on November 15, 2022. Third and subsequent Tier III DUIs will now be graded as Felonies of the Second Degree, punishable by up to ten (10) years incarceration. Additionally, the Superior Court recently reversed its previous decision to not count previous ARD DUIs for sentence enhancement purposes. Overall, Pennsylvania is cracking down harder than ever on DUIs. It is critical that anyone charged with a DUI seek legal counsel.
