A New Holland man faces up to 10 years in prison after being charged with two DUIs in a week last year.
Judge Howard Knisely recently sentenced Angel Ramirez-Castellano, 59, to three to 10 years in state prison.

He was pulled over by Lancaster city police on May 9, 2015. His blood-alcohol content was 0.26 percent. Seven days later he was pulled over by state police in East Lampeter Township. His blood-alcohol content was 0.246 percent.
The legal limit in Pennsylvania is 0.08 percent.
