LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – A Lititz man will spend up to five years in state prison for his seventh DUI offense.

Wayne Busha, 58, was ordered to serve 1¾ to 5 years, according to the Lancaster County district attorney’s office.

State sentencing guidelines required a mandatory minimum of one year behind bars, but Judge Jeffery Wright told Busha that wasn’t enough and ordered an aggravated-range sentence.

Wright said the community needs to be protected because Busha “showed no genuine intention of breaking the cycle of drinking and driving.”

The sentence includes a $2,500 fine, an 18-month license suspension, and 12 months of ignition interlock.
