DWI Criminal Charges Defended in Cortlandt Manor, NY
In Westchester County, NY having a blood alcohol level of .08 or greater
is prosecuted under Vehicle and Traffic Law Section 1192, which defines the
Driving While Intoxicated or DWI.
As an unclassified misdemeanor, a person who is charged with even their first
DWI offense can be punished or sentenced to up to six months in jail, 3 years of supervised
probation, a six month license revocation, the installation of an ignition
interlock device, as well as hundreds if not thousands of dollars in fines,
surcharges and DMV related penalties. In addition, a DWI misdemeanor conviction
stays on a persons record indefinitely, as there are no expungements in New York.
Since DWI charges are prosecuted so aggressively by the Westchester County
District Attorney's Office, it is extremely important that you have
an experienced DWI defense attorney on your side. Your freedom, interests
and finances are too important to risk to just anyone.
