Out Of State Licensees With New York DWI Charges
Nearly all states around the country report alcohol and drug related driving convictions back to the driver’s home State.
If you are charged with DWI (driving while intoxicated) in New York and hold a license from another state, if convicted of an Aggravated DWI, DWI or DWAI (driving while ability impaired) that judgment of conviction will likely be reported back to your home state’s Motor Vehicles Commission or DMV.
So not only will you be subject to penalties from New York, you will also be open to penalties from your home state as well.
Therefore, you must take an active interest in the outcome of your New York DWI case and choose an attorney that can effectively discuss all of your options including contesting the DWI charges in New York.
