There has always been a debate surrounding the legality of using checkpoints as a way to check for drunk drivers. A recent court ruling could impact how these checkpoints work, and it may even affect some types of DUI cases. The ruling specifically pertained to checkpoints involving multiple Pennsylvania police departments, putting a stop to these going forward.
A conviction of a criminal offense comes with various consequences, and sometimes, these consequences can follow a person for the rest of his or her life. A DUI conviction can affect a person's career path, particularly for jobs that require a person to have good moral character. However, in Pennsylvania, a person can still successfully apply to teach with a DUI conviction on his or her record.
