DWI Laws and Penalties in New York

The legal blood alcohol content (BAC) limit in the state of New York is 0.08%, and if you are found to be operating a vehicle while your BAC is at or above this level, then you will be arrested and charged with DWI. You could be arrested and charged with driving under the influence (DUI) if you have traceable amounts of alcohol in your system even if your BAC is below the legal limit.

It is important to understand the various penalties that you could face for a criminal conviction of a DWI charge. For a first offense, you could face up to $1,000 in fines, up to 1 year in jail, and license suspension for up to 6 months. These are serious penalties that can cause great hardship for you. If you are convicted of a second offense, then you could face up to $5,000 in fines, up to 4 years in prison, and license suspension for at least 1 year. A third offense could result in up to $10,000 in fines, up to 7 years in prison, and at least a yearlong license suspension.
