DWI and Drugs

Rockland County DWI Attorney

Driving while under the influence of drugs or a combination of drugs and alcohol is illegal in New York. The types of drug or combination of drugs you take, which can impair your driving ability and result in an arrest includes both illegal and legal prescription drugs and even over-the-counter drugs. Any drug you take which affects the central nervous system, your brain, your reaction time, and your judgment in driving, from marijuana to cold or allergy remedies may end up in your being stopped by law enforcement and being arrested.

If you have been arrested for drug-impaired driving in Rockland County, I urge you to contact me as a Rockland County DWI lawyer as soon as possible. I have extensive experience in handling all types of DWI cases, including those involving drugs and will begin investigating your situation immediately. The primary focus of my law practice is the defense of DWI cases. Doing so, gives me a cutting edge in a field that is extremely technical, based on science, ever-changing DWI law, and other factors associated with DWI.

If you are convicted of a DWAI-Drugs (driving while ability impaired by drugs,) you face a fine between $500.00 and $1,000.00 along with possible jail time of up to 1 year and a 6-month license revocation. A second DWAI-Drugs within 10 years carries penalties of fines between $1,000.00 and $5,000.00, jail time of up to 4 years, with a mandatory 5 days in jail or 30 days community service, and a loss of your license for up to 1 year. A third DWAI-Drugs offense within 10 years carries penalties of fines between $2,000.00 and $10,000.00, mandatory jail time of at least 10 days or 60 days of community service or a possible prison term of up to 7 years, and loss of your license for 1 year. The penalties you are given will be based on the specific facts of your case. A sentence, following a second or third DWAI-Drugs convictions may also include 5 years of probation and the installation of an ignition interlock device.

It is important that you consult with me as a Rockland DWI attorney about your case as early as possible. I can help you avoid a conviction in some cases and can work to get penalties reduced.
