Penalties for DUI/DWI in New York City

The punishments associated with a DWI conviction are not minor. The first offense can carry a fine up to $1000, one year in jail, and a 6-month driver's license suspension. A second or third offense within 10 years will result in much more significant fines, periods of suspension, and mandatory jail time, and the charges could be filed as a felony if you are labeled a habitual offender. A conviction for DWI has serious consequences, including:

  • Permanently damaging your criminal record
