Aggravated DWI Penalties Can Be More Severe
There are two situations in which prosecutors may charge you with an aggravated DWI under New York law. The first is when the state alleges that at the time you were stopped, your blood-alcohol content (BAC) level was at .18 percent or greater. This is more than twice the legal limit of .08 BAC for a regular DWI. As bad as that sounds and even though the penalties are more severe than those for a regular DWI, aggravated DWI is still only a misdemeanor offense.
The second type of aggravated DWI charge is more serious and may be charged against anyone who drives with a BAC of .08 or greater and had a child under the age of sixteen in the car. In New York, this is a Class E felony punishable by up to four years in jail.
Building A Defense To Protect Your Rights
Whatever your situation, you can trust that our lawyers will prepare a compelling and effective case to protect your rights. This begins with thoroughly investigating whether the officers had probable cause to pull you over and the credibility of the evidence the state plans to use against you. It also includes seeking additional relevant evidence, challenging erroneous blood tests, fighting to get evidence suppressed and preserving issues for appeal, should there be an adverse result.
In short, everything that can be done in your defense will be done at our law firm.
