What Will A Felony DWI Mean For You?
The conviction of a felony offense can alter the course of your life. A felony-level offense is the highest type of crime, and a felony DWI charge means that you have multiple DWI convictions on your record within a 10-year period. Under Leandra’s Law in New York, an intoxicated driver with a minor 15 years of age or younger will face a felony charge. The penalties associated with a felony DWI may include:
- Incarceration in a state prison
- Expensive fines
- Extensive license revocation period
- Mandatory attendance in alcohol treatment programs
- Ignition interlock device
In addition to the above penalties and others, a conviction will also result in a permanent mark on your criminal record. These serious consequences can affect everything from custody of your children to your career opportunities. Our experienced defense attorney has decades of experience, and he is committed to fighting for the best possible outcome for you.
