DWI Charge in NY?
There are many consequences that can flow from a DWI arrest and prosecution, these include, but are not limited to: the loss of your driver’s license, heavy fines, court costs, as well as extensive administrative fees, probation, local jail, or state prison time, vehicle impoundment or forfeiture, and the installation of an ignition interlock device on your car. It is important to remember that New York State treats Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) seriously. The DWI laws are strict and do not discriminate, regardless of who you are or your individual circumstances.
Aside from the more obvious legal consequences of dealing with the police, the courts, and the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), there are also practical consequences of a DWI arrest or conviction. Since DWI is a crime and a DWI conviction will give you a permanent criminal record, you could lose your job or be prevented certain future employment – especially if it is a state job, law enforcement associated, or involves driving. If you are a commercial driver, you could lose your privilege to drive commercially for at least one year. A DWI conviction can cause your insurance rates to skyrocket or result in your insurance company canceling your coverage altogether. There are other hidden DWI penalties, such as limitations on travel outside of the state or abroad to various countries. A DWI prosecution and conviction may result in community service and substance abuse treatment.
