Have you been charged with aggravated DWI? Don’t wait. Call now.
A driver found with Blood Alcohol Content of .18 or higher can be charged with Aggravated DWI in New York. Aggravated DWI cases carry a much stiffer penalty than straight DWI issues and include a large fine, possible jail time and the suspension of your driver’s license. The number of your prior DWI convictions will determine the severity of the penalties you incur, should you be convicted of Aggravated DWI. You can also face enhanced penalties if there is a child in the vehicle under Leandra’s Law.
But depending on the circumstances of your case, it may be possible to obtain a dismissal of the charge, a not-guilty verdict or a plea agreement to a reduced charge of DWI.
