If you have been charged with drunk driving in New York and you have prior convictions on your record, it is important to talk to a knowledgeable defense attorney as soon as possible.Consider the penalties for second- and third-offense DWIs vs. first-time drunk driving offenses:
|Fines||License Suspension||Maximum Jail Time|
|First offense||$500 – $1,000||Six months||One year|
|Second offense||$1,000 – $5,000||One year||Four years|
|Third offense||$2,000 – $10,000||One year||Seven years|
While the penalties are harsh, there are proven DWI defense strategies an experienced lawyer can use on your behalf. For instance, police must abide by the law when conducting the arrest and investigation. If your rights were violated during the stop or arrest, or if there were errors in conducting chemical and field sobriety tests, key evidence may be deemed inadmissible in court.
