    Answered . Berks County has an excellent Treatment Court Program that is available to some 3rd time DUI offenders. Many of my clients have been quite successful on this very program and have avoided legnthy prison sentences. I suggest you contact an experienced Reading - Berks County attorney to discuss the details as soon as possible.
