Manhattan DWI Lawyer Discusses a Second DWI Conviction
I am often asked as an experienced Manhattan DWI Lawyer what can happen when arrested for a second DWI. If you have a DWI in the State of New York and you had a prior DWI conviction in the State of New York within ten years, the prosecutor has the opportunity to enhance your case to a felony. If they enhance your case to a felony, then it will be presented to the grand jury. While you have the right to testify in the grand jury, in many instances individuals choose not to. You will be prosecuted in the Supreme Court on a felony. There are enhanced penalties for felonies in the State of New York for DWIs. Those cases are very, very serious. There’s potential of state jail time, long terms of probation, and long terms of having to install an ignition interlock device. I do suggest you speak with an experienced Manhattan DWI Lawyer who’s handled many of those cases, and I have.
