In addition to jail, what consequences does one face for DWI?


New York law enforcement is out in force seeking drivers who are operating their vehicles under the influence. This is especially true in the warmer months when people are on vacation, driving to various events and younger drivers are out on the road more frequently since they are out of school. While most people will be aware of the penalties for a conviction on drunk driving charges, including fines, jail time and the loss of driving privileges, there are other consequences that must be considered and make it imperative to do whatever possible to combat the DWI allegations.

When there is an incident in which a driver is dealing with these problems, having legal assistance is one of the most important factors in the case.
