Understanding DWI & DUI Laws in New York

Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) by alcohol and Driving Under the Influence (DUI) of drugs are serious matters that can have a significant impact on one’s life. New York has strict laws in place to deter individuals from driving while intoxicated and/or driving under the influence of drugs and to protect the safety of others on the roads. Understanding these laws is crucial for anyone who wants to avoid the severe consequences that come with a DWI conviction. In New York, if a motorist has a blood alcohol content (BAC) from .05 to .07, that is considered Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI) by alcohol.  A BAC of .08% or higher is considered driving while intoxicated (DWI), usually charged as an unclassified misdemeanor  but may even be charged as a felony in certain instances.  A first-offense DWI can result in fines, license suspension, and even jail time. Repeat offenders face even more severe penalties. That’s why it is essential to know the laws and make responsible decisions when it comes to drinking and driving. By doing so, we can all help make the roads safer for ourselves and others.

Exploring the Different Types of Charges and Penalties for DWI Cases

Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a serious offense that can result in steep consequences that can have a lasting impact on your life. The charges and penalties for a DWI case depend on various factors, such as the level of intoxication, damage caused, and prior record. In most states, a first-time offender may face fines, license suspension, possible license revocation, ignition interlock device, vehicle forfeiture, probation and even jail time depending on several factors. Repeat offenders may face even steeper penalties.  Additionally, those who cause bodily harm or property damage while driving under the influence may face more severe charges including upstate prison. It’s important to understand the different types of charges and their accompanying penalties to avoid the devastating and long-lasting effects that come with a DWI conviction.

What to Expect During Your Court Proceedings

Going to court can be nerve-wracking, especially if it’s your first time. It’s important to know exactly what to expect during the proceedings so you can be prepared and remain calm. When you arrive at the courthouse, be sure to dress appropriately and arrive early to allow time for any unforeseen delays. You’ll likely have to go through a security screening before entering the courtroom. Once inside, you’ll have to wait for your case to be called, which can take some time. When your case is called, your attorney will conference with the Judge and the local prosecutor to determine whether a plea bargain is being offered, whether the government has provided discovery (the evidence in your case) and whether you will be consenting to speedy trial.
