[ARCHIVED] Gordonville Woman Gets State Prison for 7th DUI

Susan Fahr

A Gordonville woman will serve up to 5 years in prison for her latest DUI, her 7th DUI conviction since 1989.

Susan Louise Fahr, 54, had a blood-alcohol level of .199 percent, more than twice the state’s legal limit, in her latest DUI – last summer in Quarryville.

Fahr pleaded guilty to misdemeanor DUI and was sentenced last week by Lancaster County Judge Jeffery Wright to 17 months to 5 years in state prison.

At sentencing, Assistant District Attorney Julie Slabinski called Fahr a danger, saying the repercussions of intoxicated driving are see constantly in Lancaster County Court. A hard stance against DUI is necessary, Slabinski told the judge.

Judge Wright ordered a sentence at the high end of state guidelines. The sentence includes a $1,500 fine, license suspension, required classes and treatment, and a ban from alcohol during supervision.

Fahr previously served a state-prison term for DUI, ordered in 2009.

On Aug. 24, 2015, she was stopped on East State Street, Quarryville, for a traffic violation. Police detected a strong odor of alcohol and other indicators of drinking, including bloodshot eyes and slurred speech.

Quarryville police Officer Charles Grimasuckas filed charges.
