- Many types of DWI cases exist, including those involving:
- A combination of alcohol and drugs
- Underage DWI
- Aggravated DWI
- Bodily injury
- Multiple DWI charges within 10 years
The potential penalties in all of these situations will depend on the facts of the particular case.
A DWAI stands for driving while ability impaired and includes a DWAI by alcohol in which your blood alcohol content was between .06 and .07, driving while impaired from drugs, or driving while impaired by combined alcohol and drugs. Each of these charges can result in differing penalties based on the nature of the offense, your age, and whether or not you have prior convictions.
A first offense of DWAI by alcohol is a traffic infraction carrying penalties of fines between $300.00 and $500.00, a jail sentence of up to 15 days, and a 90-day suspension of your license if you are over 21. A third offense of this nature within 10 years becomes a misdemeanor with fines of up to $1,500.00, up to 180 days in jail, three years of probation and a minimum license revocation of 6 months.
