One of the great summer pastimes in Pennsylvania is visiting National Parks and Forests in the state such as Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, the Gettysburg National Battlefield, and Allegheny National Forest. As these area are administered by the Federal Government, a DUI in these areas will result in a federal DUI offense. Law enforcement in these area are active in DUI arrests and have been known to set up DUI checkpoints.
A federal DUI much more complex than a state DUI. Also only an attorney who is admitted to federal court can defend a case there. This is why it is highly advised that you contact a DUI attorney immediately if you are arrested for a federal DUI. If you care in Pennsylvania please call 1-866-MCSHANE.
