[ARCHIVED] VERDICT: Repeat Offender Convicted of DUI while Driving on DUI-Related Suspension


A Lancaster County jury convicted a man of driving intoxicated last year in the city while on a suspended license from a prior DUI.

The jury found 40-year-old Quincy J. Domnie guilty Tuesday of misdemeanor DUI and summary driving under suspension regarding a Dec, 23, 2016, traffic stop when he refused a breath test.

Assistant District Attorney Ande Gonzalez presented witnesses and evidence at the two-day trial with Lancaster County Judge Jeffery Wright presiding.

After the verdict, Judge Wright ordered sentence of 6 to 20 months in prison followed by 3 years of probation.

Judge Wright ordered consecutive sentences on the DUI and suspension charges.

On Dec. 23, city police responded to a report that a driver had pulled a vehicle into a business parking lot on Manor Street and had been there in the running vehicle for a few minutes.

The driver, identified as Domnie, was asleep at the wheel. He appeared impaired to police and, at one point, handed officers a receipt for window tint when they asked for registration and insurance documents.

Domnie performed poorly on field sobriety tests and refused a breath test.

Domnie, formerly of York, has a prior DUI conviction from 2015.

Repeat offenders make up about 20 percent of the entire DUI caseload in Lancaster County.

Lancaster city police Officer William Hamby filed charges.
