Governor Corbett Signs "Kevin's Law" and Enacts Harsher Penalties for Hit-and-Run Drivers

A few days before Christmas in 2012, a five-year-old boy named Kevin Miller was crossing a street in Wilkes-Barre, PA with his family. Walking only steps behind his father, a vehicle came out of nowhere, fatally struck the boy, and fled the scene. Now, Pennsylvania law makers have finally taken steps to close what many call a "loop-hole" in the DUI laws.

First Time DUI Penalties in PA

In a Pennsylvania DUI case, there can be very severe penalties associated with a conviction. These penalties can range from fines, to suspension of a license, to jail time. There are three categories of impairment under PA DUI law: General, High, and Highest. Each of these categories is defined as having a certain BAC level, and each category carries different penalties.
