Most counties offer specific sentencing programs for individuals charged with DUI in Pennsylvania. Northampton County offers the ASP (Alternative Sentencing Program) while Lehigh County offers a basic house arrest option for second offense DUIs.
Northampton County's ASP program for second offense DUIs can allow for a greatly reduced jail sentence through, work release and house arrest but it does not entirely remove the incarceration aspect of the mandatory minimum sentence. Whereas Lehigh County allows individuals to completely avoid a jail sentence for second offense DUI convictions but this is accomplished by agreeing to a much longer period of house arrest than one would likely receive otherwise.
The second offender program is not for everyone and can often be difficult to enter into even if it is the right option. As always, one should contact an experienced and qualified Lehigh Valley DUI Lawyer to explore your options and to ascertain if one of these programs is right for you.
