Know the Consequences of a DWI Conviction

Talk to a criminal lawyer in New York, NY about your case

New York state law considers you to be driving while intoxicated (DWI) if you have a BAC level below .08%. If your BAC level is .08% or above, you could be charged with DUI, which is a much more serious offense. Still, a DWI conviction can have a serious impact on your future.

The penalties for a first-time DWI offense in New York include:

  • Fines ranging from $300 to $500
  • Jail sentence of up to 15 days
  • 90-day driver's license suspension

These consequences only get more severe as your number of convictions goes up. For example, a third DWI conviction will result in license revocation for one year.
