Perhaps, no other crimes are more publicized these days than those of Driving While Intoxicated. Recently legislation went into effect allowing prosecutors to charge individuals who operated their vehicles possessing .18 percent or greater BAC with Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated. A person convicted of this new statute faces significantly greater penalties including higher fines, mandatory ignition interlock and longer driver license revocation.
Typically, those arrested for driving while intoxicated are charged with misdemeanors, however, individuals who have been previously convicted of a DWI or those who have caused serious injury to others may be charged with a felony. Anybody charged with an alcohol or drug-related motor vehicle offense should be aware that if convicted they may face severe penalties including fines, license suspension or revocation, community service, probation and possibly jail time. It is important to contact a lawyer immediately after being charged.
