Vehicular Crimes

The laws and punishment for Driving While Intoxicated and related charges have become increasingly harsher over the past years.

If you are charged with a DWI in New York you may face immediate sanctions including the loss of your driver's license simply for being arrested and charged before you are even convicted. If you are convicted of DWI in New York you could face serious consequences including imprisonment, loss of your driving privileges, significant fines or being placed on probation. In the event that you are permitted to drive, you may be required to install an ignition interlock device in your automobile. Lastly depending on the jurisdiction where you were arrested you could face the forfeiture of your automobile by the County even if it is your first offense.

The laws involving DWI related accidents where an individual is injured or killed have been overhauled by the State Legislature.

These new laws have increased many of the penalties for these charges and have made it easier for the Prosecution to pursue these cases.
