In New York State, if you operate a motor vehicle while you have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .18 of one percent or higher, you may be charged with Aggravated DWI under Vehicle and Traffic Law (VTL) 1192-2a. When faced with an Aggravated DWI, you are in a different situation than you would be without the aggravating factors. Many prosecutor’s offices will hold you to a misdemeanor with a recommendation to the court that you should be sentenced to a period of probation or even jail. This is often fueled by advocacy from organizations like Mother’s Against Drunk Driving and Students Against Drunk Driving, as well as the seemingly endless headlines about serious injuries and fatalities resulting from DWI related accidents.
Our Aggravated DWI Lawyers will assist you in preparing mitigation materials that will help the prosecutor see you as a human being, rather than as a statistic.Field Sobriety Tests
If you are driving, the police may stop you in connection with a DWI investigation. Once the police suspect that you are Driving While Intoxicated, they may ask you to submit to Field Sobriety tests. These Field Sobriety Tests will probably include the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN), the Walk and Turn, and the One Leg Stand. If you fail any of these field sobriety tests, the police will likely request you to submit to a preliminary breath test, which is a usually administered at the scene of the traffic stop, and another chemical test at police headquarters.Conditional Licenses
Even after you have been charged with a DWI, our Westchester County DWI lawyer can help you pursue a Conditional License or Privilege. A Conditional License, or Conditional Privilege for our clients who are licensed to drive by another state, may be granted pending prosecution as well as after the case has been resolved.More About the Law Offices of Mayo Bartlett, PLLC.
