Multiple DWI Laws in New York

If you are charged with a second DWI offense within 10 years of your first offense, you could have your charges elevated to a felony. Even if you aren't over the BAC limit of .08 percent, you could still face serious consequences. In New York, if you are pulled over with a BAC between .05 and .07 percent, you could be charged with DWAI. If you have a previous DWI or prior alcohol-related offense on your record, you could face a felony.

This offense carries the following penalties: ​​​​​​

  • Up to 4 years behind bars
  • A 5-year probation
  • Between $1,000 and $5,000 in fines
  • Mandatory ignition interlock device installation
  • A 1-year license revocation / suspension

As you can see, the penalties for a DWI offense can be damaging. A subsequent DWI offense within 10 years is punishable by up to 4 years in prison, as well as up to $5,000 in fines, and a revoked driver's license, among other penalties. A misdemeanor second offense DWI / DWAI outside the 10-year lookback period can carry up to $1,000 in fines, a year in jail, an a year-long license suspension. These are serious repercussions, which is why the sooner you can get a seasoned DWI attorney in Nassau County behind your case, the better. Call Foley Griffin today!
