Have you been arrested because of aggravated charges; either DWI or assault? This can be a very scary situation and you might be wondering what you can do to minimize the penalties.
Aggravated Charges | Aggravated Assault
In New York, an aggravated assault usually means that you’ve been charged with assaulting an individual whose part of law enforcement or corrections or somebody else who works for the state. If you are charged with an aggravated assault, I have handled cases like that in the past and I can help you.
Aggravated Charges | Aggravated DWI
In New York State, there is a distinction for a DWI that’s called an aggravated DWI. It’s when someone has a blood alcohol content of .18 or more. An aggravated DWI is a misdemeanor and not a felony. However, an aggravated DWI has enhanced penalties, longer suspensions, and higher fines, and they must be handled by an experienced and confident criminal defense attorney.
Aggravated Charges | Driving on a Suspended License
Some people, having been charged with a DWI or DUI, had that case resolved, and wound up with a suspended license, will drive – even though they’re on the suspended list. That offense is called “aggravated unlicensed operation.” It’s a serious charge in the state of New York; in fact, it’s a crime. If that is you, you need to hire an attorney, one who’s dealt with these cases before, as I have. You need an attorney experienced in speaking with prosecutors about these specific kinds of cases. Sometimes, an aggravated unlicensed operation charge occurs simultaneously with a new DWI case. I’ve handled those cases, as well. If you had a prior DWI where your license wasn’t restored, and you now have a new DWI or driving while suspended charge before getting your license restored, please give me a call so we can discuss the facts and circumstances of your case.
