DRUNK DRIVER GIVEN PROBATION FOR ACCIDENT WITH SANDRA BULLOCK
An Essex County, Massachusetts judge sentenced a 64-year-old woman to one year probation for a drunk-driving accident involving actress Sandra Bullock which occurred last month. According to the Associated Press , the woman pleaded guilty to driving under the influence along with other traffic violations.
According to the Essex County District attorney, not only will the woman serve one year of probation, but she will also lose her driving privileges for sixty days and must complete an alcohol safety program.
Driving under the influence in Pennsylvania is a serious matter, as it is in every state, and carries minimum penalties required by Pennsylvania statute. The mandatory minimum is based on elements of the conviction, with increases in the mandatory minimum based on any previous conviction for DUI or comparable offense within the past ten years. Penalties can range from 6-months probation to up to one year in prison; along with other fines and penalties.
If you have been arrested for Drunk Driving, DUI, DWI, or Underage Drinking, contact a Philadelphia Criminal Defense Attorney immediately. There are defenses which are available to you, which can reduce or eliminate penalties associated with these charges.
