Lancaster County enforces new DUI repeat-offender program

If a person is charged with DUI in Lancaster County, they might not feel like a lawbreaker right away with consequences not occurring until they go to court, which can be up to a year to year and a half after the incident.

Lancaster County District Attorney Craig Stedman has changed that with a new DUI repeat-offender program.

Now police will deal with it right away, and suspected drunk drivers will be arrested and arraigned in court immediately.

If they don’t take you to jail that day, you will be ordered not to drink and will have to wear a monitoring bracelet.

“People who are on the monitoring system will have greater incentive to get their case resolved sooner because many people don’t want to have a bracelet,” Stedman said.

Between 300 and 400 DUI offenses a year  in Lancaster County are repeat offenders. That means one in every five drunk drivers in Lancaster County has been caught before.

The program also includes a curfew.

The neighboring county, York County,  has a similar repeat-offender program.

Stedman says he would like to eventually see the rules apply statewide.
