DWI Penalties in Orange County and New York
Penalties for DWI, statewide and nationwide, have only gotten tougher in recent years. Lawmakers, law enforcement and society at large have developed an attitude of zero tolerance toward those suspected of drinking and driving.
For instance: in New York, penalties for an aggravated DWI (.18 blood-alcohol content reading or higher) can be “enhanced” to include a loss of your driver’s license for one year, even if it is your first conviction.
This kind of consequence can be life-altering — for you and your family.
