Woman faces multiple offenses for DWI on bridge in New York

People in New York State who are dealing with drunk driving charges must be cognizant of the penalties they will face if they are convicted. In many cases, there are allegations of multiple offenses. These can exponentially increase the potential punishments. For example, if the person is stopped and has children under 16 in the vehicle, it can rise to a felony drunk driving charge. With the long-term consequences that come with a conviction for DWI, having legal assistance from an attorney who understands how these cases are prosecuted can be integral to a defense.

New York steps up distracted driving traffic violations

New Yorkers who are stopped by law enforcement when out on the road and accused of a traffic violation might not think it is that much to worry about. Once they realize the scope of the penalties including a possible fine and points on the driver's license, they quickly realize that it is not something to take lightly. Law enforcement frequently introduces stricter enforcement of certain traffic violations intermittently. Drivers who are cited should know the potential penalties they will face and the negative impact it can have on their lives.

What license restrictions might I face for multiple DWIs?

New Yorkers who are dealing with multiple offenses of driving while intoxicated will be confronted with harsher penalties than those who are charged with fewer offenses. In New York State, there are rules that mandate the license suspension and license revocation for those who reach a certain number of DWI convictions. Because losing one's driving privileges can be such a difficult situation to deal with, it is important to understand the various penalties, their nuance and how to formulate ways to combat the charges and avoid these penalties.

Teacher faces drunk driving charges after arrest at work

For New York State residents who are arrested on drunk driving charges, the individual situations will inevitably vary as will the level of consequences they face. That goes beyond the case itself and can have a negative impact on their employment. For example, if the person works at certain jobs or the allegations take place when they are at work, they might be confronted with problems that go far beyond the legal penalties with the arrest. Everyone needs a strong drunk driving defense, but this is particularly true if their employment could be in the balance.
