What Is At Stake In Your Case
The consequences of a conviction depend on how many prior convictions you have for a DWI. Just consider all of this:
DWI 1st – Up to six months in jail, a $2,000 fine, and an ADDITIONAL $3,000 fine, and losing your driver’s license for six months
DWI 2nd – A minimum of 30 days in jail and up to a year in jail, a $4,000 fine, and an additional $4,000 to $6,000 fine, and loss of your driver’s license for two years.
DWI 3rd or More – Now this is a third degree felony, which means from two to ten years in prison, a $10,000 fine, and chances are your license situation is a mess. We can help
