A DWI is a misdemeanor, unless there was a serious injury, death, or it is a habitual DWI charge. A DWI conviction cannot result in a PJC. You need to hire a good DWI lawyer, or have a court appointed lawyer assigned to you. You may have good issues related to your DWI.

No, you cannot get a PJC for a DWI. You are facing serious fines and the possibility of jail time. You need to hire a DWI defense attorney. Good luck to you.
