The Penalties of a DWI Conviction
In New York, the penalties of a DWI conviction can be quite severe, depending on the details of your case.
Here are some of the penalties you may face:
- For a first offense, a conviction may carry a maximum sentence of up to 15 days in jail and a fine between $300 and $500. Additionally, the court may impose a 90-day license suspension.
- For a second offense, a conviction may carry a maximum sentence of up to 30 days in jail and a fine between $500 and $750. Additionally, the court may impose a 6-month license suspension.
- For a third offense, a conviction may carry a maximum sentence of up to 180 days in jail and a fine between $750 and $1,500. Additionally, the court may impose a 6-month license suspension.
If your DWI involved a number of other factors, such as a particularly high BAC (.18% or higher) or you are driving with a passenger who is 15 years of age or younger, the penalties can be even greater.
If you are convicted of a DWI, it will remain on your record for 15 years. For more severe violations, such as those that involve vehicular homicide, a conviction may remain permanently on your record. Given how much is at risk, it is crucial to hire a knowledgeable legal advocate who can effectively handle your case. You do not want a mistake to define your life.
