A Springettsbury Township man was found guilty of his 12th DUI in the York County Court of Common Pleas on Wednesday.

It was the eighth time Keith A. Rohrer Sr., 48, was convicted of DUI within past decade, according to a news release from the York County District Attorney's Office.

He was also found guilty of being a habitual offender, the release says. A habitual offender is someone who has committed the same traffic offense at least three times.

The charges stem from July 6, 2013, when Rohrer was arrested for DUI about 12:30 a.m. after a witness reported to Springettsbury Township Police that Rohrer was driving a motorcycle the wrong way on North Sherman Street, the release said.

Rohrer had a blood alcohol content of .282 percent, more than three times the legal limit in Pennsylvania, when he was arrested, the release says.

According to court records, Rohrer, formerly of the first block of Longstown Road, has been in York County Prison on $50,000 bail since his arrest.

Sentencing for Rohrer is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 29 before Judge Thomas H. Kelley, who also presided over the trial.

Rohrer's defense attorney could not be reached for comment Wednesday night.
