DMV Penalties Faced by Repeat Offenders Convicted of DWI

An initial offense of driving while intoxicated in New York carries tough penalties, both in the form of fines and in limits imposed on that individual’s ability to drive. Once a New York license holder has been the subject of two or more convictions for alcohol- or drugged-driving related convictions, the restrictions on that person’s ability to drive become even more stringent and can result in the permanent loss of that driver’s license. These harsh consequences, coupled with the challenges faced by anyone with a criminal record, make it all the more important to seek out and hire a New York criminal defense attorney who will help you fight these claims and protect your rights after you’re charged with a crime.
