Man Charged with 13 DUIs Finally Goes to State Prison | NBC 10 Philadelphia

It was way back in 1984 when Lawrence Konyves was convicted for his first DUI. But the Yardley man, who was 16 at the time, was just getting started, receiving a dozen more DUI charges since then. Amazingly, Konyves managed to avoid any significant jail time. That was until Monday, when he was sentenced to 5 to 10 years in state prison for his 13th DUI.

Yet while Konyves is finally getting justice, an important question remains. How did he avoid state prison time for that long? Prosecutors say he did it by manipulating the system.

“If he was sentenced to jail time, as he was as the law mandates, he would manage to talk people into a house arrest situation which he served from home,” said Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler. “Or a situation where he was in a halfway house.”
