Felony DWI If your future is at risk, your attorney can make all the difference.

Felony DUI in New York

All drunk driving charges are serious, and a conviction for any of them will represent a significant disruption in your life. Repeat offenses, however, are particularly serious. If you are facing your second or third drunk driving charge, you could be charged with a felony.

The possible penalties for felony drunk driving are significant, including thousands of dollars in fines, years of imprisonment and long-term revocation of one's driver's license. Given the serious nature of these charges, it is important that you work with a criminal defense lawyer who can help you reduce or eliminate the consequences you face.

I am attorney Wilson LaFaurie, and I have more than 17 years of experience dealing with drunk driving cases in New York. If you have been charged with a felony driving while intoxicated (DWI), aggravated DWI, or driving while ability impaired by drugs (DWAI-Drugs), I will help you prepare an effective defense strategy.

Felony Drunk Driving Charges

Most drunk driving charges are misdemeanors, punishable by a maximum of one year's imprisonment. Subsequent convictions, however, will have much more serious consequences. If you are convicted of DWI, DWAI-Drugs, DWAI-Combination, or aggravated DWI twice within 10 years, the second charge is punishable by up to four years in prison. A third charge is punishable by up to seven years.

Felony drunk driving charges also carry fines of at least $1,000, and license revocation lasting between one year and 18 months.
