Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)

DWI is a very serious offense. You face loss of your driver’s license, large fines, and potential incarceration. Penalties vary depending on various factors such as:

  • Level of blood alcohol content in the system
  • Whether it is the drivers first, second, or third offense
  • The time period between DWI offenses
  • Whether there was an accident resulting in property damage or personal injury to others
  • Whether the offense took place in a school zone
  • Whether there was a refusal to submit to a blood-alcohol test
  • Actions of the arresting officer will be taken into account as well

The blood alcohol test may be challenged based on the results, certificates, and administration of the test. If there is a defect, the test results may be able to be suppressed as evidence upon application to the Court.
