[ARCHIVED] Jury Convicts Lancaster Man of 3rd DUI in 4 Years; Faces Prison Term

Maurice D. Williams

A Lancaster man was convicted Tuesday of his third intoxicated driving offense since 2012.

A Lancaster County jury returned a guilty verdict at 5:30 p.m. following a single-day trial regarding Marcellus D. Williams’ arrest on March 18.

On that morning, East Lampeter Township police stopped Williams after he was driving in a turn-only lane of Lincoln Highway East.

He failed field sobriety tests and refused a breath test. His license was suspended for a prior DUI conviction.

County Judge Donald Totaro, who presided over the trial, will order sentence after a background check is completed.

Williams, 38, faces a mandatory minimum 1-year prison sentence on the DUI charge, and a mandatory minimum 60-day prison term on the driving under suspension (DUI-related) charge.

Williams pleaded guilty to summary counts of driving under suspension, registration violation, and not obeying traffic signs.

Assistant District Attorney Ande Gonzalez won the conviction. East Lampeter Township police Officer Gregory Dolk filed charges.

Williams’ prior convictions were in Manheim Borough (2013) and Derry Township, Dauphin County (2012).
