Multiple DWIs

Rockland County DWI Lawyer

Have you been arrested for drunk driving in Rockland County within 10 years of a previous conviction? The penalties in New York are severe for a first DWI. If you have been arrested for a second or third DWI, you will be facing felony charges. In this situation, it is extremely important that you have a reliable attorney in your corner as soon as possible. The sooner you contact me as a Rockland County DWI attorney, the more effective I can be in handling your case. I can begin investigating the evidence against you, including the initial stop by police, the administration of field sobriety tests, chemical testing, and other important information needed to create an effective defense plan. I can also negotiate with prosecutors on your behalf in an effort to get charges against you reduced or penalties minimized.

Consequences of Multiple DWI in Rockland County

If you are arrested for a second DWI within 10 years of a prior DWI conviction, you will be charged with a Class E felony, the punishment for this charge may include fines between $1000.00 and $5000.00, mandatory State surcharges, up to 4 years in prison, five years of probation, the installation of an ignition interlock device and a minimum 1-year license revocation.  If the prior DWI conviction was within five years, the sentence must include five days in jail or thirty days of community service.

A third DWI arrest within 10 years will result in a Class D felony, the punishment for this charge may include fines between $2000.00 and $10,000.00, mandatory State surcharges, up to 7 years in prison, five years of probation, the installation of an ignition interlock device and a 1-year revocation of your license. If the prior two DWI convictions were within five years, the sentence must include ten days in jail or sixty days of community service.  Second and third offenses of Aggravated DWI will result in the same penalties except that the minimum license revocation is extended for 18 months.
