My Office Takes First Place

My office won first place in Dillsburg’s Holiday Decorating Contest with my Santa’s workshop themed office decorations. I’m pictured with Borough Council President Holly Kelley, who presented me with glass pickle mug handblown by a local artist. I want to thank everyone who took part in the contest to make our town extra beautiful over Christmastime.
New Law Cracks Down on Repeat DUI Offenders

A new law cracking down on habitual DUI offenders is now in effect. Statistics show repeat offenders cause 40 percent of all DUI-related crashes.

Pennsylvania was previously one of four states that did not punish repeat DUIs as felonies. Act 153 fixes that by increasing penalties for repeated DUI crimes. Under the new law, any individual convicted of his or her third DUI with a BAC of 0.16 or higher could be found guilty of a felony offense.

The same penalty would apply to all individuals convicted of four or more DUI offenses.

Repeat offenders who are convicted of homicide while DUI now face a minimum prison sentence of five or seven years, up from the previous three-year minimum.
