Longer Sentences for Repeat DUI Offenses Urged

Penalties for drunk driving increase every year. States are quick to pass tougher laws when they determine that it is necessary to make changes. One of the major issues that may face legislators across the country concerns the sentences that are in place for those with multiple DUI convictions.

One death has been reported in a recent accident that occurred in Clearfield County, Pennsylvania. According to reports, a car with four occupants collided with a coal truck there.

Individual Facing Charges for Providing Alcohol to Minor Involved in DUI Crash

Underage drinking and driving is a crime that law enforcement takes very seriously. Pennsylvania is a zero tolerance state, and anyone under the age of 21 that has a blood alcohol content of 0.02 can be arrested for DUI. The penalties for a conviction can be very severe, and can lead to many other consequences for the person that is convicted.

Law Enforcement not the Only Ones Watching for Drunken Drivers

We have all seen someone driving dangerously on area roads. Whether it is travelling at a high rate of speed or cutting us off as we approach their vehicle, other drivers can sometimes behave in ways that make it frustrating for motorists that are following all traffic rules.

Boy attacked by dogs at uncle's house

The effects of a dog bite can be traumatic and long-lasting. Many families have been affected by such incidences, both on the side of the victim and the dog that attacked. In the case of an 11-year-old boy from Donora, Pennsylvania, it was more than just a single dog bite. According to reports, he has bite marks all over his body and received severe injuries.

Background Checks for Teachers

A recently passed amendment to the Pennsylvania School Code, known as Act 24, requires all teachers and school employees to undergo a background check to determine if the employee has been arrested or convicted of sex crimes or crimes of violence or crimes involving children.  This applies to those applying for jobs as well as those who have been teaching for years.  There have been challenges made to this law.
